|I have been reading thru the threads here, and I am not finding my issue described. I have a 99 Ranger with the 4r44e that doesn't seem to downshift? I'm not even sure if I can manually select 1st gear? Bear with me, as I am definitely a rookie mechanic:confused: The selector doesn't seem to go into D1. I can pull out using D2, put the selector in OD, and the truck shifts all the way to overdrive, and it feels great. I can step down on it and the trans downshifts and accelerates very smoothly. But when I come to a stop, I have to manually select lower gear. I replaced the valve body with updated parts/gaskets and I'm still having the issue. Am I looking at an internal mechanical issue? BTW, the truck has a multitude of electrical issues. I am running wires and checking connectors but could the lack of downshifting be electrical? I have no wipers, dash lights, cruise, dome light/dinger, and no power to the 4x4 switch. Wasn't the GEM. Ran extra ground from block to firewall. Fuses all check good. Haven't been able to correct these yet. Any suggestions?
