Samething happen to my 2010 Ram and i took it into the dealer. It sat there from Saturday until Tuesday and I was told that it was a problem with the computer system. They toldmeit had to be replaced but not to worry it was still under warranty so NO out of pocket cost to me. They service manager said the part had to be ordered and it would ship from Los Angeles and my truck would be good to go by Thursday the lastest. I recieved the call this morning (Thursday) and David the servicemanager proceeded to tell me the computer was replaced but now the system is reading transmission failure and my truck won't be ready until Friday!! I told them from the beginning I thought it was the transmission and my theroy was dismissed due to I'm justa woman who apparently knows nothing about trucks!!

Thanks Beautifulminded77. I found out it was my transmission shift solenoid. It cost me but it works great now. Yes you were right! But they're just milking some warranty pay it seems.

Shift solenoid pack/block it is easy to replace and straightforward you remove the trans pan filter pull the valve body down and replace the solenoid it is pretty straightforward and simple the part is a little costly i've had to replace two and 30,000 miles

My 2010 dodge ram automatic 3500 4x4 got stuck in 4th gear and the mechanic here in town said that I needed to buy the shift sensor A Selinoid cause his scanner was reading code P0750 so I bought it and still stuck in 4th gear. Does anyone know what my problem could be.

I had the same problem for a couple of days i took it to a dealer and they said it was the shift solenoid but the didnt have time to fix it until the next truck was dirty from a resent snow storm and the under carrige was full of mud so i decided to go n wash it and my gears are fine now and my check engine went away.. hope that helps some of you.. make sure you go to a carwash with the undercarrige option
