04 rancher won't shift

So here we go I got a rancher in trade for a blaster wouldn't shift so what I thought would be an easy fix was not so. Had to rebuild the tranny now it will shift with the manual over ride. But it will not shift with the electric shift I have no error codes and I've been chasing it for 2 days every thing has power but nothing any ideas on what it could be. It is a 350

Ok wondering if any one has a picture of the ecu connector I think who ever I got it from had it apart and it's not hooked up correctly. Is there any one in Virginia beach area that has one of these that I could possible look at to diagnose my issue. Thanks.

Hi Tecaterunner,

I can't help you directly in the area of the connector pin-out, but the service manuals usually have descriptions of which pins go where in the connector. Do you have a manual? If not, click the link in my signature and you can download one for your wheeler.

Good luck.

Ok Im getting closer to a fix I think I have checked the book and I've checked every wire have good continuity shift motor will shift when I hook it straight to 12 volt and the book says temporary failure but yet I don't have any power to the shift motor when hooked up to the ecu but I have great continuity. This ecu came from a Honda shop that they used for testing wish I had another to test be cause my old one was doing the same thing any ideas guys

give this a try it worked on my wifes 01 350. i had it at a local honda shop and they tested angle sensor and all that and all was good, i took the digital display" not sure what they call it" but i took that apart and it looked like some corrosion started so i took a brass wire brush and cleaned all the contacts and bam works like a charm for past 2 yrs. for the hr it would take its worth checking it out. good luck
