You might think this sounds crazy - but have you checked, cleaned your batteries. any slight change in amps (I dont remember the range) can cause such problems. Friend of mine was having a similar problem at lower speeds, as was I. When I replaced my batteries - the problem quit. My friend just cleaned his posts. <br><br>This was one of many possible solutions given to me by DTT.<br>Look in the links section for Diesel Transmission Technologies web page. Give them a call. Ask for Bill of Stephan. These guys are the gurus of the 47re.

Bear, member on the other site found his problem caused by wire noise from other wires in the same wire loom that carried the lockup signal wire. He corrected situation by removing said wire and putting it in a separate loom. Something to try if other things are checking out ok.<br><br>Good luck ...<br><br>Jerry
