TC Lockup mod, short somewhere
Just as the title says I have a problem. Tried my hand at the torque converter lockup mod. Went for a test drive and everything seemed to be doing good. On the way home from the test drive the **** hit the fan. I guess I have a short somewhere. I lost my gauges, I mean the factory even the tach, the accelerator was gone. And when in drive the converter was locked. So I got it moving somehow and then flipped it to my high idle and limped home that way.
I need help as to where to look. I can get my gauges back if I touch the wire coming from the converter to a power source. But the lights like wait to start come on and they are really weak. HELP me please. Need ideas of where to look for problems. I am gonna retrace my steps in the morning. Thanks Kyle.
