Transmission issues or computer?

Asked by Sep 14, 2017 at 10:01 PM about the 2006 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Every few weeks i get into my truck and shift it into reverse,
it slams into reverse and goes, then i pit it into drive and
ince again it shifts hard, then i step on the gas and my
RPM'S go up to about 2.5k and i slowly accelerate, then my
check engine comes on and when I get on the highway the
RPM'S shoot up to 3k and wont go down, almost as if its
still in 2nd or 3rd gear at 60MPH, I discovered that if I
remove a 20 amp fuse for the PCM the problem goes away
almost entirely (still clicks a little bit not a major problem) I
had to have my computer replaced twice so I need to know
what this is asap in case I need a 3rd computer. Because
it's a whole issue with ordering a new one and i really dont
want another one

1 Answer

I forgot to mention that when I remove the 20 amp fuse for the pcm I put it right back in and its not blown or anything its perfectly normal
