Wierd that it wouldn't crank that way. That wire is the trigger on the stater solenoid. How much battery voltage do you have?

sorry...this did turn the engine over but no start. I have noticed that the fuel pump isnt on either. when I turn the key on I hear a couple things happen but not the normal clicking and buzzing things going on.

Sounds like a pats issue. With the truck in park, turn the ignition to the run position. Open the hood and find the small bullet connector on the passenger side positive cable(brown wire iirc). Separate the connection and touch the side that runs down towards the engine, to the positive post on the battery. That should crank the engine over. If it resets the pats, the engine will start.


PS do it at your own risk, I'm not sure why your odometer is showing dashes, thatight be an indication of something else that I'm not aware of.


Also make sure the transmission wiring harness is seated correctly.
One thing I did do when I disconnected the batteries was to put the positive and neg cables together w a zip tie per the builder instruction. they stayed this way for the 5 hour job. Do you think i wiped out the ecm or fried it?

Sootie I may take you up on that. I've got it on my trailer and off to the local dealer in the morning. I have a good relationship w them because of my truck accessory business, do almost daily business with them. So I guess I will know more in the morning. I had SCT try a reboot tune and that didnt do anything different. Its just locked out all communication from what I can guess.

Update....It was sorta my fault with not being able to flash back to stock. I had installed the BD diesel tap shifter and it came w a pass thru cable for the obd port. It clearly stated in the installation sheet NOT to tune or run diagnostics thru this port. It would support my edge insight but thats it. So I had it hidden up behind the dash and forgot about it, and thats why my truck wouldnt allow me to communicate w the ecm. Anyway, I unplugged everything and the truck accepted my tune. To my surprise the truck started.

And now my new problem...when the truck started , the gear indicator showed it to be in park which it was, but the other indicators would randomly flicker. no particular sequence. When it flickered the R light , the reverse lights would flicker too. CRAZY

Tried to drive it and as soon as it shifted to second it just stumbled bad....the gear indicators were blinking and I turned right back around and pulled back into my shop. Has anyone ever experienced this??? Thanks in advance

I have triple checked all three connections on the trans and even cleaned them and snapped together again. The grounds are new. The new trans had new sensors. Should I take my old sensors and put them in this new one?? After I attempted to drive it I pulled the code p174E...

This is crazy, all I wanted was a new transmission

Are you sure the shift linkage is adjusted properly?
