    It's complicated....
    That's telling you there is some type of problem.... On the later trannys there is a self diagnosis system, I think the early EFI/Auto trucks had it, but my FSM shows plugs that are probably different..... The steps are, turn thekey and O/D on (do not start truck) connect the "DG" connector to a chasis ground. (On my 89 the DG con. comes out of the wireharness on the drivers side of the engine bay.....)

    The O/D light will flash out the codes like the check engine light for other troubles....

    Maybe someone with an 85 FSM can chime in....

    I hope that helps some.
  3. I checked alldata, and cannot find any info on checking for codes on a 85 transmission.

    is the transmission acting up at all?
    no where did i find any relevant info. i searched for about 30 mins.

    Sorry, I wish I knew more about these trannys :doh:

    I have an 85 fsm and it says I should have a a43d tranny which I dont(a340h),tranny seems to work fine but the light will come on for about five minutes and then shut off.There should be a diagnostic connector some where(has to be if the light is flashing,must be a code)my haynes manual says the wire should be yellow/white,there is a yellw/blue wire with connector near efi diag. connector
