Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Can I get the code numbers which were stored?

scanned it again and the codes were not there. So i reflashed the latest cal with fjds. Upon looking for the ecm tear tag i discovered a mouse nest under the wiper cowl on the ecm wires. 8 chewed bad non really touching bad. But a they were bad. Repaired reflashed and drove 40 miles highway and back roads no codes yet. Temp at highest was 190 192. Drove great. I will road test in the am again on a cold soak and see if there is anything stored. Sorry about the delay.

Transmission Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 months ago

Do you need the diag steps for these codes?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Drove 1 hr then at idle in gear at a stop. Get back home in the driveway in gear idling stopped wrench light. Getting p0701, p0868 p0961. Memory codes. My modis says 0961 is strictly a amperage code for solenoid a. While mitchell and oem say that its pressure range. Is p0961 a resistance code for the solenoid circuit activation side? Or fluid pressure range?
Transmission Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 months ago

According to Ford https://www.dropbox.com/s/azlf6nd2ma3hf1i/0961.png?dl=0 this code is being caused by incorrect pressure.

You now will see a rating scale a row of yellow stars from bad to excellent, because I have posted my 1st full/partial answer. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
