Replace the sensor, because it could cause odd ware.

It is possible that it is the internal connection to it, or the external connector, or it can be a bad solenoid. I don't have any screen shots from a newer one with the flat ribbon cable, just the older one with the wires.

The shift solenoids are bolted to to the bottom of the transmission, inside the pan.

Shift A and B are part of an assembly, you can't replace them separately.





SSA and SSB should have 20-30 ohms. Externally on the harness you would ohm out pins 4 and 8 for SSB.

Internally, like this:



between + and 2 for SSB

If they are the same price as when I last replaced them, the part was 40 bucks, however many quarts of fluid for just doing a pan drop, I don't know what a shop would charge labor, I would guess an hour for it all, I don't know how much someone would charge to ohm it out externally or do any type of diagnostics.

Pretty easy to swap it out, pretty each to ohm it out, both from the external harness, the internal harness, and the solenoid pack itself.

You're welcome - good luck. I hope that may help fix the problem, at least you are not spending what the dealership quoted for the part.

Be careful when removing the connectors - sometimes they can be a little brittle. Also, when installing the new shift solenoids, be aware that the TCC solenoid (single small round solenoid) uses one of the same attachment bolts as the shift solenoids - look thru the writeup I linked to above and it will help explain.
Lube the o-ring on the new solenoids and wiggle/push them gently into place to avoid cutting or snagging any of the new o-rings in the bores.
