Hello, the problem is ignition feed? Seems like every circuit you mentioned is ignition feed, goes hot when you turn on the key.

Pick one circuit and troubleshoot, it may fix everything.

To start, you might check maxi fuse 6 and 5 in the power distribution center under the hood, one shows to be 40 amp and the other 50 amp, not only check the fuses, the circuit should be hot on those fuses.

Ok found bad gound to the rear sig lights, but still no speedo and volt gauge, and being that the speedo is not working it is probably affecting the trans. By the way thanks for your help kurt

The speedo nd volt gauges are not related. The speedo problem may very well be the vehicle speed sensor located on the transfer case(very common) and what exactly is the volt gauge doing?

If there's not, wiring diagram shows what looks like a fused link between guage and alt after pcm. Guage is feed from pcm to the cluster, so the whole cluster would have to be replaced if there's no link. Thanks
