gov solenoid just set gov pressure which in laymans terms is road speed input to the VB
the sensor just feeds back to the computer to verify that the solenoid did what it was told , the computer doesn't even use the sensor data to adjust the gov solenoid

Bump!

Should I try another TCU? New solenoids? The wiring is all good, connector was cleaned and greased. I also tried clearing the TCU codes by taking the battery off, but they still showed up before even driving it.

all of the solenoids going bad at once is extremely rare. look for a bad wire, fuse, relay, or the tcu.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

How do you check for a bad relay?

Do you have a Check Engine Light on? You might consider bringing it to Autozone and have them check any cods with their scanner. See what it turns up.

changed the tcu. It works good now. But sometimes when I come to a complete stop it starts in 2nd gear. Then sometimes it will go to 1 after a second or just stay in 2nd. Also is there a way to make 1-2 shift happen a little later? It shifts and it feels like the motor is struggling because it shifted a little to early into 2nd.

Adjust the TV cable.

Want to swap an NP242 or NP231 into your ZJ? Here's how:

I tried adjusting it. The main problem I'm having now is sometimes it starts in 2nd from a dead stop. the 1-2 shift is good now though. I heard something about a check valve in the cooler lines for this problem. What should I do next?

Got it at a local junkyard. Make sure you open it up quick though before you buy it and make sure the board is clean and nothing was leaking.

I had it at a transmission shop about a year ago, and the guy put one of those computer scanner things, he didnt say of anything turning up, but he did mention something about that he would have to go more in depth with it some other time and that he thaught it might be somehow falling into the failsafe mode, any ideas on why the warm and cold weather can change how it shifts if its the failsafe? But thanks i will go to autozone and get them to test it out

temp and gov pressure sensor is all one unit. one side or the other of that can fail. if the tranny thinks it is below a certain temp(0* i think) it will stay in limp mode till warm.
