    Default Torque Convertor Not Locking Up 4l60e 95 K1500 sub

    Hey y'all, I've seen a few topics that address this in different ways but none with the same basic symptoms as mine...all shifts nice and firm, but absolutely no lockup.

    This is a used 4l60e with it's TC out of a mid 90's K1500 pickup. I just installed it as-is into my 95 K1500 Sub. All I did was replace front pump seal, change filter & fluid, & wash it off. Shifts great, but no lockup whatsoever.

    I checked all the electrical connections & read it looks like I need to plug up the scanner & make sure the PCM is sending a lockup command?

    And if it is, I need to replace the TCC Solenoid, right? Sounds easy enough...someone tell me if I'm wrong here... Please and thank you

    Bumping this...upon further investigation:

    No transmission codes, no engine codes, PCM is sending Lockup command. Fluid level good, color nice & red & new smelling.

    Still great lockup whatsoever. Help Please!!

    Any further thoughts?

    I'm drawing a blank here... Just replying so you don't start thinking that we are ignoring you! (plus a free bump-ola)

    How does one tell whether the TC has locked up or not? For sure, without guessing.
