5 pin or 4 pin connector has nothing to do with shifting on the 4l60/700 trans.

Check your TV cable for adjustment , free travel of the cable... slides in & out of the housing easily.

minimum setting is important as the max setting at WOT

4l60

thanks for the shift info on the 4l60. tv cable adjustment did not change the late shift at high rpm . are you sure there is not a shift solenoid for 1st and 2nd in the 5 pin 4l60? there is two solenoids at the bottom rear of the tranny and it looks like a temp sensor is in between them. i found the correct wires for lock-up in the front. supposed to be a good trans any last ideas before i pull it and go back to 700r4 4 pin ? cant find wiring schematic for the 93 4l60 5 pin if you disconnect the round 5 pin connector on the left side will it not affect the shifting? what are those two electrical devices at the rear ? they have one wire attached to them and they look like a plastic nut about 1 1/2 inch . thanks for your input

===========================================

I have split off this discussion since it has gotten larger than I thought it would... better viewing for folks I hope.

================================

with 3 decades of trans work under my belt ....yes I am sure there are no shift solenoids on a 5 pin connector 4L60.

The late shift at high RPM , may be a stuck TV cable, inner TV valve in the v-body ..... A TV cable on this trans is also an indication the trans is NOT a 4l60E trans with shift solenoids.

The items on the rear of the valve body you describe sound like pressure switches .

a photo of v-body with pressure switches;



these pressure switches may not look eggzackly like what is on your v-body.



here are shift solenoids common to a 4L60E trans..:

back to 700r4

thanks for all the info on 4L60 trans! scored a fresh 700r4 today so i will pull the 5 pin tranny out and stick with the 4 pin 700r4. any problems on the 1985 model that should be updated while i still have it on the bench ? i will check tv spring of course and change out lockup solenoid for insurance.
