I also tested my switch and solenoid today. When the pedal is pushed I get 12v at the solenoid but doesn't kickdown above 40mph or in any other gear than 4th gear. Im guessing the solenoid isn't sending out enough signal or something to make it kickdown at high speeds or in a lower gear. I'll pull one out of a Junkyard an see if it helps my problem.
