If checking the solenoid module doesn't fix the problem what is next? Transmission is not slipping. Worked fine until now. I crossed some deep streams with the truck, that is why i want to check for moisture in connections.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

You have to remove the pan and then the valve body to get to the solenoid pack which is bolted to the top side of the valve body.

I am attaching the removal instructions for your reference.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for it. Thanks

Generally this code results in the solenoid pack being replaced. Start by checking the resistance of the L/R solenoid at the transmission connector to see if its out of spec.

Are you sure this is the right transmission? I was told by a tranny mechanich here that the solenoid pack on this model is on the outside and the pan does not have to be removed. So now i'm confused?
