Hi Mickey, My name is ***** ***** usually set due to a bad Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) solenoid or the connection to it. Access the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) connector behind the Left Hand (LH) fender area. Disconnect the harness and test the resistance between pin 71 Red wire and pin 81 White/Yellow (WH/YE) wire. The resistance should read roughly 3-5 ohms.If the resistance is high, test the WH/YE wire for high resistance or open circuit between the PCM and transmission connector pin 11. Repair the wire if needed and recheck operation.If the WH/YE wire is OK, at the transmission connector test the resistance between pin 11 and pin 12 on the transmission side of the connector to ohm the Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) solenoid in the transmission. Should be 3-5 ohms. If incorrect, its likely a faulty EPC solenoid in the transmission
