1998 Dodge Ram Repair Question
OD-off button doesn't work
What's been done recently: new Blue Chip VP-44, top-of-the-line w/new Frieghtliner computer (engine runs better than it ever has); new battery terminal ends, wire-brushed battery posts, both batteries good; checked all fuses, interior panel & underhood both; throttle cable bracket/housing double-check (cable to trans was a too tight -- stayed in gear too long before shifting) & I've gone over all wiring I can get to without taking things apart, nothing I can find wrong there.

the ground for the switch is to the trans control module. thats what turns it on or off..
is it going into overdirve or locked out??
As I mentioned, the trans shifts into OD as it should -- I just can't turn it off with the button @ the end of the shift lever.
can you verify 12 volts to one side of the switch??
That I have not checked but will. Switch on the left (driver's) side of the transmission I presume? All I checked there was the trans cable & the arm it goes to when it was staying in gear too long before shifting -- that problem's solved.
check up at the button arean of the wheel. we wnat to make sure there is power to the switch, at the switch
10-4 and thanks. Gotta run a couple errands then I'll get the test meter out & see what I find.
