No, but my truck was in the dealership yesterday, for the late shift out of first gear problem where most people say the governor pressure sensor is the problem. but according to the guys that worked on my truck it was a Throttle Pressure/Cable adjustment. that seemed to fix it.

Yep, mine went out and replaced it myself. Just drain out the tranny fluid, drop the pan, remove the filter, and then unscrew the bolts that hold it in and unplug it.
Reverse process with a new sensor, filter and pan gasket. Refill fluid and off you go!

As a side note I also replaced the Pressure solinoid as well just for good measure. The dealer said they sell these to the tranny shops by the handfull every day.
So this is a common problem.

If I remember both of them together was around $200. One was $96 and the other one was $112.
I'm going off of memory here so don't quote me.

I also bought a drain plug and installed it in the tranny pan for easier draining in the future. Picked it up at Autozone $3-$5.

Well I replaced this sensor and the problem still there. It is a little better. I have alway thought this but came to this conclussion that it is heat sensative, obvouisly the hotter the day the more expansion more pressure. My engine will not go into 2nd under WOT. I dont want to keep replacing things if they won't reslove the probelm. I am thinking the valve body could be the issue or maybe the pressure selinoid. Any help would be appreciated. I already have a shift kit which did made the probelm worse. Thanks

I replaced my governor pressure sensor 2 months ago and it just went out again. I don't want to keep replacing it. Does anyone know what causes these to go out? It seems to be a VERY common problem with dodge. There is no recall though! Dodge enthusiasts... please help!!

I have a 99 dakota ,5.2 V8 automatic and when it warms up it revs up to 3.5g and shifts hard into 2nd and 3rd. Check engine is on and had auto zone hook it up and the code is P1763 gov. pressure sensor input too high. what do i need to do. and most of all is it gonna fix the problem. I dont think the tranny is shot cause its fine when its cold. it only does it when its hot. it does have aftermarket cold air intake but i dont think that would cause it.

Have you ever owned a rabit in the 80's? WHAT 2ND
WORSTITEM WITH THOSE CARS? Besides the plastic switches
Andwera is electrical copper wieres. So if your truck is over 7
years old and you do not keep it in a closed environment
garage and you live on gravel road or a state which salt its
city roads, try gesing what happends with your electrical
sensor conection. YES COPPER will tarnish and gues what
happends when your batery terminal on your car creates
carbon it creates resistants causing the batery to wear out
prematuraly and after you spend the money for new batery
your starter goes becaused it over heted from force starting
engind with dead batery. FYI before fixing car you should do
additional steps which I can provide later.

Its located on the valve body. You can only get to
it by dropping the tranny pan.

I have a 2002 dodge durango with the same problem.
I replaced the govenor pressure sensor and now I
am getting the p1763 code also. I was told to
check all the connecting wires with the tranny and
o2 sensors by a tranny repair shop here in town.
After having to spend $75 on tranny fluid twice I
am scared to drop the pan again for nothing.

If anyone has had this issue also. Please let me
know if it ended up being your wires worn down.

Thanks

Hey just read on another site that there was a factory recall on
the production floor where they spliced three wires going to the
transmission harness, ( splicing the coil pack and another
sensor which can reek havoc in the CPU) as I'm told you'll
have to open the wiring harness coming off of the sensor and
find this place under factory tape and RESPLICE it I'm gonna
look into it for a buddies truck tomorrow. We just replaced his
pcm for a fuel pump issue now we gave the p1763 code.
