Dodge 2500 shift problem and solution

I had been having a problem with my 01 Dodge diesel with automatic transmission shifting at around 45 to 50 mph. It would shift into the high gear and then downshift. I could either speed up or slow down (depending on what gear it needed to be in) and it would be OK.

I had read where corroded/loose battery connections could cause electronic shifting problems......and even the alternator sending pulses could do it.

Well, I cleaned the connections well this morning, and also found a kind of loose one.

Took it for a spin, and it's shifting as it supposed to now.

Just passing the info along for others who may encounter similar. Heck of a lot easier and cheaper than taking it to the transmission shop.

Iíve lost my scapegoat.
I have nobody to blame but myself.
