Vehicles may develop a start and die out condition or a transmission that defaults to second gear. Our technicians tell us that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault and require replacement. Our technicians tell us that if the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.
