When im in overdrive and just cruising.Doesnt matter how fast I am going my transmission will jump out of lockup for a split second and then go back in lockup.Its really getting on my nerves.I can cruise for ten miles and it will do it 5 or 6 times.I thought it was a missfire but I turned overdrive off and cruised and it didnt do it.Plus its not dropping rpm's.The cruise control is not on either.You know how you can be cruising and you snap the throttle and it jumps out of lockup and then goes back in?Thats what its doing without having to snap the throttle.Anybody have any suggestions?Thanks

That's normal for these transmissions. My '01 RT and my '00 DD do exactly the same thing and changing the TPS did absolutely nothing to improve it. A new TPS is a waste of money. HemiFever can remove that programing for the tranny with the SCT tune.

I have a martin saine vb with the diodein it for the no lockup in third gear feature and sean sent me a tune this morning deleting some kind of lockup crap.Im gonna try it before I buy a TPS.The thing is that before this tranny and before SCT I had this problem before but it would do it once in a blue moon

It's the TPS. Has happened on both my Dakotas, and both times a new TPS fixed it. Over time, as with any type of device like the TPS, it will get a "dead" spot where you normally have the cruise set and the signal isn't steady anymore. Go with the majority and not the exception. TPSs don't cost that much. I'd rather swap out a faulty TPS than have a custom tune made to override the lock up to bandaid the problem.
