    Fellas,

    I have check Advance, Napa, and PepBoys and they all say they dont have this? Do I have to get it from a GM dealer?

    Good question. I think mine just failed last night also. I have no lock out any more. I was going to go to the dealer. The gm service manual says you need a special socket. Is that true? Anyone?

    Mine is the opposite. It goes right in. I can't down shift from 6th to 5th or it maygo into reverse if I'm not paying attention. When the key is off mine won't go into reverse at all. Then if I turn the key on it goes right in.

    I am not sure I follow...if you are down shifting from 6th to 5th then there is no real chance of going into reverse...now vice versa I can see that...where you are going from 5th to 6th...I see that a case where you may throw it into reverse rather than 6th...

    I think you may be confused. Reverse is next to 5th , not 6th. Therefore one CAN get reverse when they want 5th. Before you shell out $$$ for a new solenoid check the fuse that operates the solenoid. With the key on and the vehicle below 5mph, it SHOULD be easy to get reverse. Key off, its a two-hander. These conditions will tell you if the solenoid( wiring included) is working. If the fuse is good and you still require two hands with the key on & the car stopped, you need a solenoid. However check the fuse as it is VERY rare for these solenoids to go bad.

    LOL my bad bro...that was the first thing I looked at this Monday morning...

    I was definatley confused...it always hard..So I think it may be the solenoid...I crushed the ground hog the other day and it was so bad I wanted to cry...I think that did something to it...But when I looked where it was located I was like NO WAY its to far up in there to get it so I dont know...
