I think (hope) this issue changed their views. I just started it. I also turned the key to where I could move the gear selector and ran it through the gears several times, it started after that as well. I turned the heat on in the garage, once it warms the beast up I'll repeat the same test.

My truck had this same issue. The first time I took it in, they replaced the starter. The second time, they found it was actually a grounding issue. I thought there was a TSB out on it. Anyway, I hope this helps.

Tell you what. Even though the said they adjusted the shift linkage, the invoice DID have something about a missing ground!! Aren't there TSB's besides the ones they have to release to the public??

Thanks!

TSB's aren't released for the general public, but they aren't restricted either. We do have access to other technician confirmed repairs that aren't released to the public. I've been looking for the bulliten in question but haven't yet found it.

Well . . . It failed to start again this evening. I put it in neutral and it started right up. Back to the dealership.

Interesting. The T 41 circuit is the signal circuit between the Transmission Range Sensor (TRS) and PCM and if there's no ground, I would expect to find a bad connection of faulty TRS, but I can see how the tech could easily be fooled into thinking it was a cable adjustment issue.

Well, I talked to the mechanic this morning, it's going back to the dealership Wednesday morning. I'll ask about the TRS and thanks for teaching me the "lingo" as it always gets noticed!!!

Is there any kind of sensor in the column for the range selected?

No, the TRS is built into the solenoid pack which is mounted to the valve body inside the transmission.

And so when you put it in drive this device energizes the solenoids to open the correct valving for forward?

Can inexperiened use of the "paddle" shifting on this truck actually damage the TRS? In tow mode there is a rocker button on the gear selector to choose gears.
