Question Check gauges light, tranny gauge dead.

It works when I turn the truck off and back on. I drove through some standing water earlier. Probably a foot or two deep. I didn't think it was a problem for my Super Duty. Any ideas?

Since the TFT sensor is inside the pan, I'm going to say there's a wet wiring connector or short somewhere. Unless the temp sensor died; I've had a TFT sensor die that suddenly in a 5R110W, but that's a different trans than yours so I won't hazard a guess if your temp sensor would fail the same way.

My mechanic couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. I hope it's nothing serious. I'm going to put the plow back on it. We're expecting 12-18 inches tomorrow and I need to make some money.

Question

The gauge works now. No red warning light. There's a pause when I shift it into reverse. I'm going to have it checked out by another shop after the storm. Any recommendations for a replacement 4R100? I don't want to spend $5000 on a John Wood 4R100.

How long of a pause into reverse? 2-3 seconds is normal for a 4R100.
