Hey guys, I went on a trip this weekend up into the mountains, drove up there great, used hardly any gas, had a whole lot of fun. Then today, my Dad asked if I could tow the enclosed trailer down the mountain, and back home, as he didn't like his big 40' motorhome and 24' enclosed on the tight, winding turns.
So I gladly agreed, I just got new brakes, my brake controller is setup, and the trailer only weighs maybe 6,000#. I was using the trans to slow me down and keep me at 55 downhill, just had overdrive turned off, and it stayed at the perfect speed. It didn't feel like it was a lot of pressure on the trans, so I kept doing it, as well as pumping the brakes every once in a while to give it a break.
Well about 75% of the way down, the OD
light started flashing, and trans temps were at about 210*. So i pushed the button, and let it go into OD
, and then used the brakes the rest of the way down. Got to the bottom, and it was shifting hard, obviously in limp mode with full line pressure. But it shifted through all the gears, so I decided to truck on and make it home (only about 80 miles, and it was all flat). The trans temp never fell below 210*, and hovered around 215* the whole time.
I just got home, and I can't get ForScan to read any of the codes, maybe i'm stupid, but it keeps showing "No DTC
found" when i try to make it scan. Then I even tried the KOEO
self test, and it immediately just went to 100% and said no problems.
Does anybody know how I can get ForScan to read the code? I also tried TorquePro and ForScan Lite on my android, but no difference. All say no codes, but I KNOW there is a code in there.
I hope I don't end up calling BTS sooner than I thought...
