4L60E problems

I have a 5.3 mated to the 4L60E in my cj,and it only shifts if I let off the gas a little or if I do it manually. Any ideas?

What year is your Trans? Did you just install it? If so its your DRAC module I'm on my phone otherwise I'd post pics. It's a white odd shaped plastic box with a circuit board inside ussually with in a foot or two of your ECM

You have to have the DRAC module and a VSS for it to shift. It's all electronic it needs the pulse from the VSS and the drac reads that and tell the Trans when to shift

The motor and trans were purchased separately. The harness and PCM that came with the motor was modified for a 4 wire hookup. Do you have a picture of the drac?

I'm on my phone. Check the link I posted you need to figure out what year Trans you have and the harness will need to be reworked or get another Trans

??? Hmm PM Wayne hartwig I'm surprised he hasn't chimed in on this but check the 5.3 thread and he's all over it he should be able to guide you.

So you have the VSS I'm wondering what may have changed from the mid 90's to the 2000's as far as the shifting mechinism. I've done research and came up with nothing. Who did your harness? I'd call them and ask

There is not fucking DRAC on a Gen III setup!

If its shifting at all the VSS is most likely good.

I have another symptom; if you let off the gas going 20mph or more, the jeep basically coasts until u apply throttle then it catches the gear again
