  1. What did the dealership report as the problem and fix?
  2. Tow/Haul Switch/Indicator Always On or Inoperative 4L60/4L60-E/4L65-E Transmission Circuit Description Tow/haul mode enables the operator to achieve enhanced shift performance when towing or hauling a load. When tow/haul mode is selected, the tow/haul switch input signal to the body control module (BCM) is momentarily toggled to zero volts. This signals the powertrain control module (PCM) to extend the length of time between upshifts and increase transmission line pressure. Cycling the tow/haul switch again disables tow/haul mode and returns the transmission to a normal shift pattern. Diagnostic Aids If the electrical circuit tests are OK and the tow/haul shift pattern is not occurring, there may be a mechanical/hydraulic condition that prevents tow/haul operation. Refer to Symptoms - Automatic Transmission. Test Description The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table. 2. This step tests for a faulty tow/haul switch. 3. This step tests for voltage input from the BCM to the tow/haul switch. 6. This step tests for voltage through the body wiring harness junction block. 7. This step tests for ground integrity at the splice pack. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 4L80-E/4L85-E Transmission Circuit Description Tow/haul mode enables the operator to achieve enhanced shift performance when towing or hauling load.

  3. Thanks guys. It appears to be a no brainer decision between DIY or Dealer. Does anyone know if a Genisys EVO is capable of performing the Crankshaft Position Variation Learn Procedure after replacing the crank sensor? I've been watching eBay for a resonably priced Tech II, but I've had no luck yet. Other than flash reload/upgrade modual memory, what can the Tech II do that the Genisys EVO can't? Thanks again.
  4. Scan code indicates a problem with the crankshaft position sensor. I've had two incidents of cranks but fails to start after a short trip, but started ok several hours later. Is the crankshaft position sensor reasonably easy to replace? Dealer wants $400.00 for the task. I can get the sensor for $62 (shipping included) from GMPartsDirect. I don't have my GM shop manuals with me at the moment, so any advice from someone who's been there, done that would be appreciated. Regards to all.
