My truck shifts fine until you get up to highway speeds then it wont shift into o/d. There is a abs light on, but other than that no other lights on dash. Runs great shifts smooth but no o/d. Any suggestions

The computer must see good temp from the coolant sensor before o/d will kick in. Also, could be a bad solenoid or the cltuches are burnt.

Which solinoid could be bad, and accrding to the guage te temp. Sensor is working does that mean anything? Or could the coolant sensor still be bad?

It would have to be verified by a scanner to see the temp being sent to the computer.
The solenoid id in the valve body.
