Today my 2009 Dodge Ram got stuck in fourth gear. It will go in neutral and reverse but not in drive. It is stuck in 4th gear in the auto stick mode. It happened while at a stop light. Check engine light came on. The computer scan says a code of PO750 LR Solenoid Circuit.

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.

Mine did this when i started it. Did yours just when you stopped at a light?

Mine was to and the engine light was on. So I decided to remove the - cable on the battery. Working now !!

About 2 months ago was the first "stuck in 4th gear issue" Panamera_2232... thank you for the quick fix. I washed my truck and undercarriage and the truck came out of 4th gear. 05JUL2017 - I was getting ready to leave NY and head back home to KS, it happened again! This time I'm stuck in 4th and the engine light is on so, that stopped me in my tracks. Went to AutoZone and the guy tried to scare me by saying it was a major transmission problem. HA! I'm so frustrated! Apparently, this is a common occurrence with our Dodge Rams but Dodge won't fix the issue. Now I'm stuck in NY for another week until the local dealership has an available appt for a DIAGNOSTIC check. The guy at the service counter was really nice and when I told him what was going on he shook his head and said, "it's probably your transmission solenoid but you know, they'll still have to diagnose it and we only have one tranny guy and he also works on diesels." If I heard him correctly, I believe he said that there were others in the shop with the same issue.

Could I drive my 2011 Dodge Ram home 40 miles in 4th gear
