P1784 low reverse pressure switch sense circuit.
Start by checking fluid level and condition. then check electrical connections. if all ok, probably solenoid in the valve body assembly.

P1767 Transmission Relay Always On. Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction (PRNDL Input)

Start with the simple and Check your fuses and transmission fluid level, if the level is good and the condition of the fluid is good. There may be an issue with your solenoid or your transmission pump. You can check your pump buy checking your transmission fluid level with the engine not running and take note where the level is. Then start the engine and check the fluid level again, if the level has gone down. The your pump is good, if it does not go down. Then your pump has gone bad and your going to have to rebuilt the transmission or replace the pump.

You better of replacing the whole transmission of the pump has gone bad, since the low transmission fluid pressure would have worn out most for your clutches throughout the transmission.

Thank you for using Fixya and hope is just a simple Solenoid that has gone bad or a wire harness that has shorted out.

SOURCE: want to know whats these

Hi, the first part is data taken along with the code. The code P1281 indicates the engine is running cold (141 degrees--should be at least 190). Is your temp gage running lower than you are used to? If yes, it may be your thermostat has failed open. I have pasted below instructions for replacing the thermostat. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

3.7L & 4.7L Engines WARNING Do not loosen radiator drain **** with system hot and pressurized. Serious burns from coolant can occur.

NOTE Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse. If thermostat is being replaced, be sure that replacement is specified thermostat for vehicle model and engine type.

  1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
  2. Drain cooling system.
  3. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  4. Remove splash shield.
  5. Remove lower radiator hose clamp and lower radiator hose at thermostat housing.
  6. Remove thermostat housing mounting bolts, thermostat housing and thermostat.

To install:
  1. Clean mating areas of timing chain cover and thermostat housing.
  2. Install thermostat (spring side down) into recessed machined groove on timing chain cover.
  3. Position thermostat housing on timing chain cover.
  4. Install two housing-to-timing chain cover bolts. Tighten bolts to 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm).
    CAUTION Housing must be tightened evenly and thermostat must be centered into recessed groove in timing chain cover. If not, it may result in a cracked housing, damaged timing chain cover threads or coolant leaks.
  5. Install lower radiator hose on thermostat housing.
  6. Install splash shield.
  7. Lower vehicle.
  8. Fill cooling system.
  9. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
  10. Start and warm the engine. Check for leaks.

Removal & Installation, 4.0 liter engine

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If necessary, disconnect the coolant temperature sensor electrical connector.
  3. Disconnect the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing.
  4. Remove the attaching bolts and lift the housing from the engine.
Remove the thermostat and gasket.
To install:
  1. Clean all gasket surfaces thoroughly.
  2. Place the thermostat in the housing with the spring inside the engine.
  3. Install a new gasket with a small amount of sealing compound applied to both sides.
  4. Install the water outlet and tighten the mounting bolts to 200 inch lbs. (23 Nm) on V-8 engines and 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm) on non-8 cylinder engines.
  5. Install the upper radiator hose to the housing and tighten the hose clamp.
  6. Connect the coolant temperature sensor connector to the housing.
