It wont engage in any gear, Now its throwing a code (PO841)-Trans fluid press sensor/switch A CKT range/Perf... Now I really dont know what the problem is.. Dealer wants 85.00 for that sensor, But nobody knows anything about that code.. Can anyone Help on this one Thanks.

The 45RFE transmissions had a problem with losing their prim when Chrysler went to the WIX filters. Not saying this is your problem, but it is possible that the filter is not sealing/seating properly.

#5 of 50 Durango starts in 2nd gear

My 2000 dodge durango 5.9 with the 46RE usually skips 1st gear and starts off in 2nd while proceeding to shift out well. Sometimes it will start off in 1st very briefly and then slip right into 2nd. NO codes through a generic obdII scan. If i do disconnect the battery it starts in first and shifts normally into 2nd only that one time. Any ideas?

My truck runs fine and has no codes stored to indicate a problem. When put into drive it immediately stalls as if the torque converter will not allow it to idle in gear. I can get it rolling and drive but can not come to a stop without shifting into nuetral. This is a tranny issue but what part of the tranny is causing the problem? I removed the trans and inspected the valve body for binding but found no problem. The fluid is burnt and contaminated. The governer solenoid had debri in the screen. But how would that cause this problem?

I bought a 2007 slt in March. I didn't think the transmission was working properly almost imediately. I was told that I just wasn't used to the car and the transmission. I had traded in a chrysler 300 so I thought I would give it a chance, Since then it has gotten worse. Driving at 70 mph on a clear day on flat pavement and it sounds like it shifts into knowwhere land and then back. It has occurred under all weather conditions, terrains, speeds, and different drivers. I took it to the Dodge dealer near me and they said that yes they felt it and heard it too. But the computer says there is nothing wrong so they can't fix it.

I parked my 2005 durango in the driveway and the next moring In started it shifted the trans into R and nothing happened. I went through all of the gears and it acts as if the engine is nolonger connected to the drivetrain. Any ideas what could have failed and how I can test it to make sure?????

I'm having similar issues. I took it into the shop and was told that it's possibly a problem with the computer sending a signal to the tranny to tell it to shift. I basically have to start it in 2nd, shift into drive. But even then it doesn't shift into any higher gear and once I reach about 40-45 you can hear the engine start to rev higher. Does anyone have any idea of what "computer" part this is? As I'm told there are two computer units in this vehicle.
