My 2004 Ford freestar needs to the trans brake
solenoid replaced. Im trying to find out where it is and difficulty to replace.
JA: Are you fixing your Freestar yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: My FIL will be doing the repair, if its not too difficult. If its not something we can do, Im not sure itll be worth the cost to repair and keep it. The problem started out with trouble shifting and notification of trans overheat on occassion after a major engine
repair. BUT when the trans was working fine, then the ABS system light would be on and it would vibrate when brakes were pressed. And when the ABS light was off the trans wouldnt shift properly. Now the trans wont shift out of 2nd (I think) at all, but the ABS light is off and they are no longer vibrating at all. It has totally stopped working.
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: Just the ABS light
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Oh ya and the brake light would come on sometimes.
