What is wrong with a 95 Chevy truck when speedometer and tach doesnt work and transmission wont shift but some times it does?
The VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is probably bad. Also check the fuses.

It sounds like the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) has failed. If the VSS fails, it can cause the symptoms you are describing. Check the wiring and make sure your VSS is properly p…lugged in before you replace the VSS. Where the VSS is located can vary depending on Make Model and Year. Check your vehicles Service Manual (Available from auto parts stores, commonly referred to as a "Chiltons Manual" or "Haynes Manual". ALLDATADIY is another good source) for more information. Some vehicles do not have a Vehicle Speed Sensor, a common example would be a Generation 3 Ford Taurus SHO. The SHO uses the ABS wheel sensors to generate a signal to the computer to calculate speed. If this is the case with your vehicle, it is recommended you take your vehicle to reputable shop for servicing, as the ABS system is a complex and important safety system for your vehicles safe operation.
Answer . check for an open fuse or\ncheck the vss (vehicle speed sensor)
What could be wrong if a 1995 Ford Escort LX speedometer does not work and the automatic transmission will not shift out of first gear?
I'm having the same problem. Seems to me it's something in the engine wiring harness. It happened once and my daughter played with some of the wiring and it was fixed for quit…e a while. Recently, an auto repair shop was messing with the wiring and it's back doing the same thing again. Speedo not working and it hangs in 1st gear and shifts erratically.. I have had this problem also and it is a easy fix. Replace the speed sensor. There is two kinds one with a red gear and one with a white. So take it out first before you go to get one. You can find the speed sensor on the back of the Transmission the speedometer cable goes through it you will need a 10mm wrench and that is it.. if its stuck in 1st the gear box is probly buggerd and as the speed sensor is directly attached to the gearbox it probly still works just need new box

You have changed your brake booster on your 95 Chevy truck and now your brakes wont work nor will it go into gear whats wrong?
It sounds like a vacuum problem. Either you got a bad brake boosteror the vacuum line came loose somewhere or cracked when you changedthe booster.
check the fuses.
Replace your speedometer sensor. I just had mine replaced in my '04 Impala. The sensor tells the tranny when to shift. It's located right in front of the transmission.
Need to replace the neutral safety switch on the side of the transmission But need someone to scan the trans. First with a engine scanner. To make sure that is the problem…. It could also be a bad speed senser.
check pig tail at speedsensor at rear at trans case or trans. or if that fails change vehicle speed sensor
Sounds like the speed sensor is bad.
Speed sensor on Trans, or buffer behind dash... OR, any broken wires in this circuit. Very common problem on this and many other vehicles.

The 1/2 tons have the 4L60E in them and the 3/4 tons used the 4L80E transmissions.

Why wont it shift out of first the speedometer doesnt work and the abs and parking brake light is on after the tranny swap?
You didn,t say what year it was ? So I'll answer it like this. I would make sure the SPEED SENSOR that's in the transmission tail shaft is working correctly. REPAIR as neede…d. The transmissions MUST be the same YEAR and same kind. If I new the year and what it was in, I may have given a different answer.
need more info.year,model.

Hopefully the simple solution would be the fuse 15a for the speedometer. If the computer doesn't read the speed, the tranny doesn't know when to shift. If the fuse is alright,… you then need to check the speedometer sensor located on the rear axle hub. Check connections for corrosion and cable for damage. After that, good luck !!

Check for a blown fuse.
