Allison shift pad
My push button shift selector/pad is becoming increasingly slow to respond.
I seem to remember tell of a company that rebuilds them?!.
If there is no such rebuilding option any advice on where to look for reasonably priced replacement?
Thanks as...

Brett replaced our 'one window' display in 2010 with the dual window, looks the same as Lon's,  I like the 'click' buttons !

Lon, what did you pay for it?   :-X

Mike, your '93 probably came with a 2 window display from Foretravel. Hope to find out if it wasn't and that they are interchangeable.

Until I put in the VMSpc, I didn't know the coach wouldn't upshift to 6th until 63 mph. Towing in Cal. limits speed to 55 so I am running in 5th while towing and mileage suffers.

So you're saying the CHiPs don't have no sense of humor?  They won't let you fudge it a bit up to 63?  Bummer.

Interesting as my m11 upshift into 6th occurs at 55.  I think the shift points are adjustable? Same axle ratio

"In ECONOMY MODE, the transmission will not downshift even at WOT (Wide Open Throttle) until the engine pulls down to peak torque RPM in some application and 200 RPM lower that "regular mode" in others. And similarly, on up-shift, economy mode...

My tranny shifts to 6th at 61mph.  Not 60.5 even.

Yes, the Allison ECU can be reprogrammed by an Allison dealer.  BUT (large BUT) the RPM range is what is set, so it would affect all gear changes, not just 5-6.

If all repairs were this simple I would be a very happy camper.
Less than 15 min. even if you "milk" the job.
