Default transmission 99 Dodge Durango 5.9

On the dunes yesterday, the transmission stopped shifting automatically. However I could manually shift 1st/2nd to Drive.

The autotrans (20amp) fuse is blown, and blows the new one as soon as you hit the key.
Since it was on the trailer, on the way home from the Dunes, I stopped at an Advance Auto Center, and had them put the scanner on it. It coded a fault Solenoid "A".

I'm assuming this is a solenoid pack issue, but have limited knowledge of the Dodge transmissions.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I believe it is the 46RE.

I noticed it not shifting when I went to take off, it was in Drive. I guess it just stopped shifting.

I'm going to need some direction.............I just read up on replacing the solenoids, and it doesn't look too difficult. However, I hate to drop $200 into this tranny, and have that not be the problem.

U can test the solenoids with a resistance chart from ATSG...
I have that for a 45re, 45rfe, no 46re..:thumbdown:

The one for the 45re may be the same so I attached it to this for you.
Hope u can read it.:D

U can test resistance at the connector that comes out of the drivers side of the trans.

Odds are really good that the 45re and 46re are not that different for the solenoid resistances.

Here is the resistance values.


Here is the harness connector pin out


Here is the case connector pin out


I can get u the book this week...figured I shoot ya some pix hoping that's enough to get u started. .

Lemme know if u need more!

John, you can isolate it to the trans by unplugging the big connector at the trans, if it blows the fuse still it is not in the trans.

I will see if i have the correct pin-out for that connector.

Awesome, thank you

It's on the hoist, but that's as far as I got before I had to bring the kids to practice.
I will check that as soon as I get home.

After all the worry,...........it was a pinched wire at the plug. Lower driver side back of transmission.

Apparently I hit something on the dunes. I guess it is time to put a skid plate under it.
