Shift kit installed, now issues

I have a '00 XJ with a AW4. I installed the Transgo 340-HD2 shift kit. Now with it back together with the shifter in the 1-2 position it is 3rd gear, in the 3rd
position it works as it should (shifts 1st-3rd), 4th position does nothing feels like neutral, and Neutral, Reverse, and Park positions all work as they should.

Here's what I've done so far:

Tested all solenoids
Confirmed correct VB gaskets
Pulled the VB and double checked for correct installation of shift kit
New filter and fluid

Thanks for the reply! After reading your thread I ended up going through the VB again and sanded any valve that didn't move smoothly. One of them must have been getting hung up, because it works correctly now.

Glad to see you got it working! It sucks to have to do it twice, but at least it'd fixed.

Re: Shift kit installed, now issues

Weird that this issue has surfaced so frequently. I didn't have any post-install issues with this shift kit and don't recall sanding the edges of my valve pistons.....but maybe I did?
