Just cut out on highway. Fuse OK.

I recently had the automatic transmission rebuilt. The engine revs and the transmission does not shift out of 1st to 2nd until 20 MPH. The tech says this is about correct. I sense that the engine is reving too much in all the gears when shifting up. What are the approximate proper shift points from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th in MPH?

There is a 4 switch panel on the ceiling just to the rear of the front seats. It has the word Colemen, in red, that is back lit. The light behind it NEVER. SHUTS. OFF. Van off - light is on. Key out - light is on. Doors shut - light is on. 24 hourse a day - light is on.The switches on the panel are labeled L. Rear, R. Rear, Sofa, and IND. I've no idea what IND is, either, by the way. Flipping the interior light switch on the dash makes no difference. This is the kind of van that appears to have an upside down boat atop it, and that you can stand up in - if that helps you picture it. For better visuals, the exterior is white and teal, the interior teal, teal, teal, teal, and oak. It's horrible and amazing. I hope someone has some notion of how I can stop the red Coleman glow of mystery.... Thanks for reading this.
