Default AW70 not shifting after OD seleniod bypass install

my car is a 92 244 it was having some issues with the OD seleniod before. its only shifted into 4th after driving for a while and the trans got hot. I figured it was the OD Seleniod so I ordered an IPD byass plate installed it and now it wont shift from 1st gear at all. shifts from park/neutral/reverse into drive but wont shift from first when you go to drive. I checked fluid and it's operating range. maybe a piece of trash got in it when changing the seleniod? drop the oan change the filter? Did I Install backwards maybe?

How many O-rings did you use? Make sure the trans has enough ATF.

both orings came off with the old one. I started it without it on there and it moving fluid. it wasnt leaking. I checked the fluid and it seemed ok it was in the cross hairs.

I put the seleniod back in and it shifts again. The fluid looks like it's done. its dark and really thin some maybe its not building enough pressure.

Inner o ring should not be used with bypass plate and make sure you installing right way, not in reverse.

The O-ring that came with my bypass plate from IPD was too thin to seal properly, resulting in a fluid leak. A fluid leak at that location would cause not going into overdrive. I ended up using a slightly thicker O-ring.
