GM first generation 6T40, 6T45, and 6T50 transmissions often set various trouble codes related to failures of fluid pressure switches that are internal to the transmission electro-hydraulic control module (TEHCM). These codes may be accompanied by shift irregularities such as slipping, flares, harsh application, and bind-ups. As time goes by, the laminated portions of the pressure switches can breach, preventing normal switch operation. If more than one switch breaks down, failsafe mode can be triggered. Since switches cannot be obtained through OE channels, replacement of the TEHCM was the only previous remedy available.

It is no longer necessary to replace the expensive TEHCM assembly to rectify this concern. Installing Sonnax pressure switch rebuild kit 144510-09K restores normal switch operation, eliminating codes and providing renewed shift performance.
