    1997 ETC tranny issues

    I have a 97 ETC that stalls out when put into reverse. It also stalls sometimes when coming to a complete stop. (Usually when doing less than 15 mph) I have worked on caddys my entire driving career (11 years) and I'm stumped. Please help. I have checked fuses and no lights or warnings come on except the oil light flashes. These issues may or may not be related.

    It hasn't. I am going to do all those things in the a.m.

    ----------

    Its fixed. There was a bare spot on the positive battery cable that had ground its self out on the core support. A simple changed cable and now I'm golden. I checked the codes anyhow and there aren't any. Thanks for your help guys. I will always use this forum now. Over and out.
