2002 dodge 2500 diesel

i have a 2500 dodge diesel with the automatic transmission. when the truck takes off it takes off in second gear instead of first. i can manually pull it in to first and it will work. any ideas on what might be wrong

FarmallM1947, I had the same condition in my truck a couple years ago. Whats wrong with your truck is it needs a new Gov Solenoid and Transducer in the transmission. These parts I think are part of the valve body. When mine went out it was still under warranty so I wasn't the one doing the job, dodge did. Mine would also shift into first manually but not on its own if I left it in drive. Do a search on Govenor Solenoid and Transducer, you'll probably find some good reading on it.

I'm pretty sure its two different parts. I never got to actually do the repair because mine went out under warranty and dodge did the fix. I've heard of others that had this problem and they just get the parts from the dealer. I don't know if there is an aftermarket replacement part, but you could install an aftermarket valve body built for towing. I'm sure someone else will chime in with more info. I have had this repair done now for 3 or 4 yrs and I've put about 80k miles on it since then. I also haul heavy on occasion, sometime dads antique tractors and equipment for others.

I had that problem after installing a Race VB and was told it was due to older electronics. I was told to call DTT and buy a voltage regulator for the 47re it cost me 75 bucks shipped and took about 20 minutes to install and fixed the problem. I still get a second gear start after a long highway drive but its because I dont have the voltage dialed in all the way.
