But like said the solenoid sits inside the trans in the valve body. If the problem is with the valve or wiring inside, you won't find it.
I see you have 100000 + on the trans. When was the last time you had the fluid and filter changed out?
Could be something as simple as the solenoid is hanging up occasionally due to poor condition of the fluid. If it hangs up, the computer could be reading it as a short as the power to run it spikes. And the code pops up for a short.
i looked and it appears there are two spots where wires go into the tranny. One inlet has three esposed wires, not sure what they are for.
To answer your question about the tranny, I purchased it about a month ago, I haven't seen any records or reciepts that show the tranny fluid was changed. I found a receipts for a pinion seal replacement though.
I noticed on the pan though that a few bolts are different than the others and there is some leaking with orange sealant around the pan edge.
Do you you suggest I change it out?
I think I should change the oil as well in the engine.
Do these have tranny cooler lines?
