Have a problem with a 98 intrepid es with slapstick. Just replaced the windshiels wiper pump and now I have a problem with the transmittion I think. The first time we drove the car after the pump was replaced and noticed that the only gage on the dash working was the tact. No speedomitor, no mileage indicator, all boxes lit on gears so had no knowledge of whether the slapstick was in 1st or anything. Then the check engine lite came on and the car would not come out of first gear. Insteadof trying to drive to the nearest Autozone we changed out the input and output sensors on the Trans. Engine lite is now off but we still don't know what gear the car is in the mileage indicator still reads the same mileage as when we first started driving and still in first gear will not shift up. Was wondering what could be wrong now. Would it now be the transmittion range sensor or the shift selinoid. Sorry about the spelling

Recheck the area where you did work on for any loose and or cut wires
if fuses all OK
suspect wire
no power to the TCM

Could you show me a diagram of where all the sensors are at on the transmittion please. Along with what each one is and what it does. Is there a sensor on top of the trans near the shifter cable that might be bad, If so where would we find it. Once it stops snowing we will retrace our steps to check all wires.

If all work before the work you did
check the work area for any disconnected connecter

We retraced his steps and found that he had moved a 20amp fuse for the TCM that was under the hood.
By replacing a new 20amp fuse in the spot all is now working great. Thank you so very much. A big hug to all of you. If I have anything else go wrong with the car i'll be back, as well as tell others about your site. THANKS SO MUCH AGAIN.
