Well find the burnt wires first. The '94's have a ECM to run the TBI engine and a separate TCU to control the 4L60e. The TCU is located on the drivers side inner fender. Inspect the wiring. Follow the large harness back to the tranny plug. It may be a good idea to drain your tranny fluid to see what conditon the fluid is in. Also inspect the shift solenoids and wiring on the valve body.

If the wiring looks good you could try replacing the TCU. They are very cheap at the wreckers. Just make sure it's pulled from a 1/2 ton gas with a 4L60e ('93-94). Larger trucks and the 454ss used the 4L80e and the controller is different.
