My Husband replaced the transmission in my 2001 Chevy Suburban, someone told me that the computer needed to be reset to "learn" that the new transmission was in place. My Husband's scan tool will no longer read my truck and a friend brought over his $3,000 scanner and it wouldn't read my truck either.
My question is, how can we reset the computer here at home. Because of the old transmission going out, now the new transmission will not go into third (that's what happened to the original transmission), so I can't drive it to a shop and honestly, we can't afford to have a shop work on it anyway.
I think resetting/restarting the computer would be the first step, and then, at least, the scan tool would work and then maybe the computer would learn that the broken transmission has been removed and a new transmission has been put in.
Thank you for your assistance!
have the same problem?
