    My TCC is locking up and doesn't seem to shift into 3rd or 4th gear when I'm on the highway. The wires to this solenoid are damaged. How can I fix this?

    I was assuming that my fluid and filter need to be changed online 46rh transmission but if these wires are my problem I would rather fix the problem than work on something that isn't the problem.PHOTO_20191010_172212.jpg

    at the trans case how many cavity's in the connector,

    You could replace the connector - often they come with several inches of wire, OR cut the wires several inches up where you can work with solder heat shrink,

    NOW with connector in hand a parts store can match shape cavity's OR search on line -

    NOW remember this the a 46rh not the common trans for a 98 ZJ. I do not know for sure if different trans to trans.


    For thise lookiing for connectors try this

    When I do a search online, I can't find just the connector and the ones I see come with the solenoid which is about 60 bucks. What should I search on an auto parts website, like the search term?

    I think rewiring is out the question because that is my rewire lol I had a problem with the OD light staying on because one of them was disconnected. I rewire them all and got rid of that problem for a short while and then it came back because the wiring came undone. I rewired it this time and I haven't had an OD light yet, but now I have this problem.

    The light blue wire read 12 volts, the green wire read negative, and I couldn't get a reading on the purple wire. My OD light doesn't come on with the key turned in the on position if I press the button.PHOTO_20191015_121122.jpg
