why did you replace your transmission? what was wrong with the old one?

you should call the company you bought your transmission from and ask them why the trans won't go into second gear.

without a scanner, it would be difficult to find out what is happening with a computer controlled transmission.. A transmission shop should have a scanner controller that can shift gears with the controller to see if the trans is capable of shifting on command or not.

you have everything plugged back in securely? How about the ground wire to the lower left side of the engine?
