Transmission problem
1999 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

Works fine, when cold. After truck warms up, first and fourth gears stop working. Starts out in third gear. Doesn't slip, but bogs down. Does not slip or leak and the fluid looks good. Reverse is fine. Service engine soon code is PO785.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

My 2005 Suburban is doing the same. My GM technician Tod me it's fixed with a new ignition switch 75% of the time. Many times new shift solenoids don't fix it. Is this what you have found? My appointment is tomorrow afternoon.
