    On my '02 silverado I have a service engine light on, so I went to autozone to get the code. Says, my ECM has detected an open or shorted condition on the shift solenoid circuit, don't know how this happened, just got the truck in Jan., and it had 72,500mi I only put 4,000mi on it. I did have the oil changed. Is there a way for me to fix this myself...I usually do maintenance myself, this is just a new beast for me, need info bad!!!

    Try out the thread in the Q&A section called "Repair Manuals" and look up the repair procedure for your truck. I read elsewhere that is as simple as draining the tranny and dropping the pan, replacing the solenoid then re-install the pan and fill. Check out the thread though for step by step. Let me know if you find the manual, and repair instructions.

    The only thing I would add would be to remember that codes point to problems in circuits, not components. It would sure be irritating to go to all the trouble of replacing a shift solenoid inside the transmission to find out that the real problem was a loose connection outside the transmission.
