Help! - tranny issues

Two unrelated problems:

1. New transmission put in about 40k ago, and the upshift indicator comes on in 5th gear. I assume they didn't connect something properly. Easy fix, or tough one?

2. Reverse lights stay lit when running. I have a slow leak (my guess is slave cyl.) and it has run low before, causing tough shifts. I'm guessing something got stuck during a bout with low fluid. Easy fix, or tough one?

any help is appreciated!

I would just dissconnect the shift indicator light
I always found them annoying
If you don't know when to shift you shouldn't drive a stick you know what I mean

your reverse switch sounds to be stuck
remove the shiufter boot and play with it
I even had some friends hook em up to toggle switches

And the slave cylinder is a piece of cake
2 bolts and it is off
It just might need bled too
Just follow the line down to the cylinder and you will see an allen bolt (really small one)bleed all the air out of it
or if the seals are really bad and leak you might as well replace it .
They come prefilled just bolt on and go
have fun and good luck man

I may be wrong but your YJ might have a internal slave cylinder. If thats the case its a major hassle to replace cause its located on the input shaft of the tranny. That means pulling the tranny to get it off. If you can do it yourself its just time consuming, if not then be prepared to spend a good chunk of cash.

It's an 89 YJ, 2.5L...

I assume the tranny is a BA 10/5. Am I right on this? Knowing it was replaced, how might I confirm? And everyone's fairly certain it's an internal slave? If so...ugh.

I also have a Haynes at home...should help things a bit.

I'm kicking myself for not paying more attention to the mechanicals when I was younger...gotten better over the years. Live and learn.
