2011 solenoid location

Anyone know where the torque converter clutch solenoid is at on a 2011 wrangler?? I got the p7040 code on it recently and it's telling me it's that and to test it but I have no idea where to find it or what it looks like

It's part of the valve body. This is additional info:
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness or connectors
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted
- Transmission internal mechanical problem

The torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, with the gear in D4, by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the vehicle speed and the Engine Control Module (ECM). Lock-up piston operation will then be controlled. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, the torque converter lockup clutch will engage creating a 1 to 1 RPM ratio between the transmission input shaft and the rotational speed of the torque converter.
Lock-up operation, however, is prohibited when A/T fluid temperature is too low.
When the accelerator pedal is depressed (less than 2/8) in lock-up condition, the engine speed should not change abruptly. If there is a big jump in engine speed, there is no lock-up.

There could be a problem with the valve body itself or the torque converter. You might still be covered under the Limited Powertrain Warranty for this problem. There might not be an easy solution. If you're still covered, meaning you haven't exceeded 5 yr./100k miles, have a dealer diagnose the problem. If you're past it, a private trans. shop would be better than the dealer to take care of it. Some dealers send trans. work out to private shops. Good luck.
