[DML] Re: Auto Trans Computer Test?

Hi Jake.

I don't believe so.  Testing it requires rotating the input, while 
monitoring the solenoid drive outputs.  Just hard and expensive 
enough of a test, that only a manufacturer of the circuit would want 
to bother testing them individually. It's very unlikely someone has 
put together a good test fixture for the fun of it. 

I've considered making a test fixture of this type myself, and have, 
at least mentally, already designed it.  If I ever design an 
aftermarket transmission circuit board, I will make the test fixture. 

If you can answer these questions with "yes", your rebuild will 
probably work.

Are the capacitors in your rebuilt unit positioned correctly, not 
Are they soldered well? 
Is the box sealed well against moisture?
Do the output transistors connect well to the heatsinks?

Good luck

Rick Gendreau.
