HELP!!! 4L60E no OD???

I put a new (rebuilt) tranny in my 97 chevy K1500 recently and buggered up the VSS during the install (I had old tranny out a couple of times previously). Had to put shift lever in neutral to start and the indicator needle slipped (lagged behind what gear I actually had selected). Other than that, the tranny worked as it should, though I did have a check engine light. After a couple of weeks driving it this way (I know, but saying I didn't have time would be an understatement) I lost 4th gear. Finally put in a new switch today, rigged per the manual and everything works perfectly now except I didn't get 4th back. I dumped the codes when I changed the switch and remember seeing an 81 (2-3 solenoid I believe) but nothing has popped up again since changing the switch. I've only put about 10 miles on it so maybe it will come back.

Anyone got a good idea what happened? Could I have burned up one of the solenoids by driving with the bad switch? Does the 2-3 solenoid have control over OD? Thanks for any help.
