This foot will stop the sensor from being pushed down too far:

then from appearance the sensor is ok from any outside mechanical problem... but it could still be bad, so before i put the VB back in, would i be able to test the plug with the valve body out of trans?

im not to electronically inclined but what your saying is each terminal on the plug should give a set voltage per gear you set in it?

In fact, yes. If you have a basic grasp of circuits you will be able to use a DVOM and say in PARK there is a continuity between pins 1 and 2 or possibly, 1 and 2 and 5. If you take your meter leads, you'll be able to touch pin 1 with one lead and pin 2 with the other lead and it will beep or show zero resistance. (Depending on the meter type).

So the theory goes, if you move the manual lever to REVERSE those two pins might show they are now open. This would be easily done on the bench and with the schematic handy so you are sure about what's supposed to make contact and what's not.

so i checked the volts and ohms and found one of the wires was out so i switched it and reinstalled valve body now when i turn the key to on a beeping sound comes from where the solenoid pack is... i still have the pan off as i was going to test the new connection before putting it fully back together.... is it a no fluid sensor alert thing? or is it a problem with the connections? and the valve body seemed to seat well when i installed

What does your indicator show on the dash? Do you now have P and N?

EDIT: Did you make sure this was the TRS or MVLPS for the right year car? I just had the odd thought on that.

yea its the MVLPS and i had the connector unpluged as i was going to test the wire i just fixxed before putting it all together so all gear lights where fully illuminated.... when i tested the connector the first time i had the valve body and connector fully out... besides the re-soldered wire and reinstalled valve body those are the only things that have changed.

i can tell the beeping is coming from right above valve body seemingly from the solenoid pack.... as i said i still have the pan out so can hear it well, not in cabin or by the computers

I have no experience with this beeping but, would suggest going ahead and filling it up and see how it does.

well after a talk with the guy at the dealership their is nothing in any transmission that would give off audible... so looks like i gotta drop it again check the pins and if they all check out i get to swap the pack with the older transmission.... i hate things like this it would be one thing if i was a dumbass and didnt disconnect battery or something but this is just plain stupid

weird too the beep has a pattern yet he says theirs no audible devices....

also after fixxing the wire and reattaching the MVLPS the gear light all were still fully illuminated when before it would act normal except the P/N wouldn't light up (which was the wire i had to re-solder)

again i feel this is because of the valve body or solenoid as thats the only thing that really changed or moved that caused such a difference

Sorry this is turning into such a troublesome fix. I'm going to try some head scratching and see what I come up with.

well no need now... after i found the solenoids are same 93-02 but the 03 and 04 have different solenoids so i cant swap out... however i dropped it again cleaned terminals put back in still same beeping problem so i disconnect battery plug in the MVLPS and try and see if the new solder is working and i get P/N and it works and the beep has gone away.... i already had the sensor in the first time when i got the beeping so im not sure exactly what the cause is (maybe MVLPS wasnt seated right or something) im just glad its fixed

now if only i didnt have work in 45 min i could put her all back together and be good to go

Wait - where is the beeping from? What wire did you have to solder?

It was from the solenoid pack beeping, the wire I resoldered was on the mvlps the p/n input wire which was why it wasn't reading p/n on dash and no crank
