      Hi Mr. Handy, glad to assist you! There may be different reasons for this problem link, a faulty transmission control solenoid, clutch, MAF sensor, torque converter. But, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

  • Q:

    could this solenoid keep my transmission on a 1988 dodge ram 50 from going into over drive

      A:

      I'm happy to help, Biggum! It's definitely possible that the transmission control solenoid could be the part causing your 1988 Dodge Ram 50 not to shift into overdrive. It is also possible that another part could be causing the problem as well. An overdrive relay or a temperature sensor under the hood could also cause the truck not to shift into overdrive.

      I suggest having a mechanic diagnose the vehicle to ensure you do not purchase a part that may or may not correct the problem. If you need help finding a mechanic, try our 'Need expert help?' link further down this page. I've also found some additional information about the Ram 50 here: http://www.mightyram50.net/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=807.

      Hi Bill! I'm glad to help. It is located in the transmission, on the valve body. It is part of the rectangular plate with two solenoids and the wiring pigtail.

    i have 1988 power ram w150 4wd 5.2 fi vin y a code 37 where is this located std 3 speed autmac

      A:

      The code 37 on your 1988 power Ram w150 should be for a distributor pickup plate, but may also be referred to as a Hall switch or "switch plate" in the Parts Book. It should be a round, flat plastic plate with two attachment screws and a single electrical pigtail ending in a 3-wire round connector. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

      A:

      Yes, the transmission control solenoid should be the problem. The solenoid is inside the transmission. To replace the solenoid, the transmission pan has to be removed. This BWD Transmission Control Solenoid with part# S39050 fits your 1990 Dodge Ramcharger.

    • A:

      if your engine runs at or above 3K at 50-60mph it is locked out of O/D in O/D it should be about 2K or near it because there will be no torque on the engine in O/D.

  • Q:

    will this solenoid make the torque conveter stay locked up on an 89 dakota 3.9 v6

      A:

      It is possible to directly control the lock up clutch with a switch. If you get hold of the proper workshop manual you should be able to figure out which wire needs to be intercepted. The easiest acceptable relevant plug is a round multipin squashed between the cylinder head and the firewall. The trouble is, when you activate the LU clutch the electronics will detect a fault condition and drop you into third gear, where your car will stay (if you are in Drive) until you reboot the ECU. Yes, it is easy to fit an LED on that line so you can see when it is locked, if you can't tell by ear. Incidentally if you select 3 then it will hold 3rd locked as long as humanly possible, it is designed to be a very good towing gear.
