Haynes Manuals not Chiltons are the source I use for wiring. You local library might have one and photocopy it off.

DTC P1744 is "TCC - Excessive Slip
Detected During Full TCC Engagement". Which means that the Torque
Converter Clutch (TCC) is disengaged or the EPC pressure is at the
The most likely cause is a sticking or bad TCC solenoid inside the transmission. You can check the connector at the transmission to make sure it is clean and tight and that it is not damaged in any way.
If the TCC and wiring is okay, then pressure testing of the transmission will need to be done.
A new torque converter from Ford is about $265.00 and about 4 hours labor. Throw in a $40.00 TCC solenoid and I don't think it'll be more than $700.00 at worst.
If the pressure test is good then it's just going to be the $40.00 tcc solenoid and the cost of the transmission oil and filter changed which should be around $150.00
Good luck and hope it's just a loose wire harness to the solenoid which would cost $0.00 and just your time to locate the break in the wire. The other thing to, is to add a transmission fluid additive that would restore the clutch pack in the transmission and Torque Converter.

Testimonial: "thanks a lot very helpful and detailed explanation"
The transmission will not have to be removed for this, however, the valve-body assembly will need removal. This can be accessed by taking off the pan on the transmission.
