P1779 I believe is what it was
Expert:  Jay replied 2 years ago.
P1779 is not good code. Do you mean maybe P1774?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
P1774.We were going by memory it is the P1774.Joe
Expert:  Jay replied 2 years ago.
That code could be due to a bad TCM. Where the valve body would be replaced. A scanner is going to be required to do the proper checks to determine this. If not a TCM, it could be a internal transmission failure. Either way, it's going to require a Scanner first, if that is good, the a transmission pressure test is going to be required to determine the internal functions. If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.Thanks Jay!

Jay. I have a scanner and told you what it said. Lb/c solenoid function.
Expert:  Jay replied 2 years ago.
Bulletin number NTB10-003a, For the code P1774 you need to check the TCU power and Ground. If that is good, then you need to replace the valve body. If not power or no ground, then you would need to perform the proper steps to resolve that. If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay

internet is pointing to this issue
Expert:  Jay replied 2 years ago.
That is possible also. Normally you would have a rumble strip type of noise or vibration at around 40 mph before you have trans failure. I would check your fluid condition to see if it shows any mixed fluid. If not signs of mixture, then you will need to perform the TCM inspection. As for the Trans cooler failures, There is a warranty extension based on mileage if this is your issue. If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!
