just a suggestion but maybe you could ask the dealer to remove a valvebody from a new truck in there lot and put it on yours,.. and once they will get the new part install on the truck in the lot,..

With the technology and electronics in these truck along with the 8 speed trans, an extended warranty is almost a must.

I'm just gonna add. We have had ZF transmissions in our Rovers and Jags for over 10 years now. Other than the old 5HP18, used in the BMW Rovers, the ZF transmissions have been bullet proof. We have that the 8 speed for two years now (which other that being 8speed vs 6speed, they are almost identical to the ZF 6speed). Mechanically, including the valve body (which is also the TCM), there are no real known issues. The problems that have come in, for not going into park or not going into gear or out of park, have ALL been from the gear selector or a CAN fault. Nothing with the transmission itself.

I'm really not sure how the dealer could go outright and say it's a TCM, without even doing any kind of diagnostic on the truck.

Now the truck is sitting dead at work, think the battery drained because the warning screen would not shut down and I had to go to work. Any one else have the problem of the 8speed trans not shifting into park?
soo what happened,.. has it been fix? what was the issue

Weird problem, but glad you got it back on the road... It must have sucked driving a little car instead of your truck
