Asked by Jun 07, 2015 at 06:43 PM about the 1999 Cadillac Escalade 4 Dr STD 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

what sensor could be causing my escalade to turn off once I put it in drive and try to take off

1 Answer


could be a tcc or torque converter control solenoid. when they go bad the torque converter wont unlock. google the location for your model. unplug it if possible, if it "fixes" then that is the problem. can be an expensive fix. you can drive the car fine with it unplugged but you will lose some fuel mileage
