    Default 4l60e shift issues

    My 93 4WD Suburban (4L60E) will not shift into low or OD except when cold and usually forcing it to shift by manually moving the shift lever. I checked the voltage on all the solenoids at the computer and they all appear OK except the 3 to 2 downshift. I also shorted the solenoid pins to ground and they all "click" except the 3 to 2 downshift. Would this keep the tranny from shifting into low or OD? I am trying to figure out if I have a tranny problem or a computer problem????

    Default ATF and Filter

    The transmission is recently rebuilt and only has about 6K miles on it. Fluid is bright pink not burnt at all.

    Smile 4L60E Shift Issues

    Well I finally found what was causing the shifting problem. The connector on top of the tranny could be rotated about 1/4" in the tightening direction when I rotated the connector it would shift correctly when I turned it back the tranny would go back into the "limp" mode. The truck has been OK for about 12000 miles now.
