03 ram 2500 4x4 5.9 TCM


Need help, my truck (2003 ram 2500 4x4 with 5.9 diesel)wont shift out of first unless I take it up to 25-2800 rpm then it shifts usually skips 2nd and shifts normally from there.  Took it to a trans shop they said its my transmission control module (TCM)  about $800 to replace, they said $2000 from dealer, they are charging me labor to replace it $250 about 10 minutes worth of work. I am going to do it myself. well I can't find it.  I went to dealer they gave me a picture but its not where they show.  all so its only $375 from dealer not $2000 Another thing there's no check engine light. I don't trust any of them but the dealer did mention the check engine light and made sence about buying a tcm and it being internal and there's no money back on electrical parts. can someone tell me where it is and what it looks  like? If I take it to Autozone they will send mine in to have it repaired for $219

ok I think I found it. The one computer on the passenger firewall is the PCM and TCM together. I'm gonna send it in hope this fixes the problem, the trans may go next but you never know
