Used trans, new map(?) sensor because truck wouldn't stay running. The ECM was shot so they replaced it and then flashed it. The truck starts and runs but the trans fault light stays on and the overdrive light keeps flashing.

ok, thanks. again, any codes???

still looking at either the torque converter or solenoid

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The garage said they didn't know what the problem was and wanted to keep the truck and start a diagnostic procedure. I couldn't afford $95 an hr. They didn't tell me what the codes were but said it could be any one of 8 things. So no I don't know what the codes are and is there anyway that I can find that out myself?
Expert:  Roy replied 10 months ago.

you can go to a parts store and they will pull the codes for free.

do you have the truck or is it at the shop??? who installed the trans???

Roy

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
An independent mechanic installed the trans. When it wouldn't stay running he loaded it onto a flatbed tow truck and took it to our local Ford garage and they changed the sensor and flashed it. The truck is at my sons house right now. I'll be able to get to it after he gets off from work. Where is the solenoid located?
Expert:  Roy replied 10 months ago.

you have to drop the pan and the solenoid is in the valve body

did you provide the trans or the shop. just wondering about warranty

Roy

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
there's no warranty, I bought the trans used. If I run the codes can you tell me what they mean?
Expert:  Roy replied 10 months ago.

yes I can

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
okay thanks. As soon as possible I'll take it to Auto Zone and have the codes read. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Expert:  Roy replied 10 months ago.
