will changing all the solenoids and sensors with the wiring harness on the tranny to match the ones on the truck correct the difference and make them compatible.


I successfully installed the 2001 46re tranny into my 1998 ram . Therefore the answer to my Question is YES it will work! to ensure the wiring matched me TCM I replaces the transducer, Governor, housing for both, along with the wiring harness which included the attached solenoids.
