Default SC2 code 11

I have a '95 SC2 (automatic) that has a Service Engine code 11 which I found is Transaxle Codes Present. I changed the transmission fluid, filter, & transmission temp sensor but still the same code. The car seems to shift fine except for 2 issues. When I am coming to a stop it downshifts hard and lurches forward. Second, if I am in D and downshift to 3 or 2 nothing happens. If I start in 2 it doesn't stay in 2nd gear it just shifts normally. I saw a video by richpin about adjusting the transaxle range switch and was wondering if that could be the problem. I paid $400 for the car last year and don't won't to put anymore money into it for something I can't fix. Any ideas would be appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you get the code 11 then the actual transmission code on your '95 should flash the actual code in the indicator lights above your temp gauge, which are the coolant temp/level and tranny temp lights.

Getting that code might lead you in the right direction.

With code 11 present keep the test terminal grounded and the code for the Transmission will flash through your temperature lamp, Get that code and post it back here.

Default Re: SC2 code 11

The transaxle code is 45 (selector switch no data). This morning I was checking the neutral safety switch and noticed a single wire that wasn't connected to anything. It looks like the connector at the top of the switch must have broken off. I'm going to go to a junk yard tomorrow and get a new switch to see if that fixes the problem.

The switch alignment instructions are in my photo gallery, it will not work unless properly aligned.

Went to the junk yard yesterday and got a $6 neutral safety switch, put it in the car and no more engine light. The car is running great (as great as a 19 year old car can).

you gotta love expensive fixes like that.. a couple of weeks ago i picked up 2 O2 sensors, complete wiper transmission/motor, windshield , front fender, 2 drivers side mirrors, 2 complete coil packs/ wires, 3 evap valves on filler neck, a set of rear drums and shoes & new hardware (must have been put on a week or so before the car got smashed), and a couple of EGR valves for $60

A broken switch terminal is unusual and your quick replacement to fix this problem is a great follow up for a solution.
