Smarty!

I have had my Smarty on for a week or so now, and I really like it...I know that the Cruise Control is disabled, but I talked to my dad last night and he said the truck NO LONGER starts in N...Is this b/c of the Smarty of do I have bigger problems? The rest of the tranny is fine, no slip, feels great!

If you return it to stock settings does it start again in Neutral? If so, it some how is making something in your starting circuitry think neutral,.... is in gear. Which is kind of surpising considering how little electronics are in a 47RE compared to anything else out there.

I would vote for a bad sensor on the trans. I'm not a auto trans guy but from what I know of the auto trans they had a Park / Neutral switch on them.

Well, the way I figure, its not big deal, when I put in my tranny stuff I can fix it then...TC still works, shifts fine...

You still want to be able to start it up in Neutral though, stock those things don't have fluid flow in park. Even really good v/b's still don't have the flow that neutral does.
