we can not answer what you can do or fix.
only how to diagnose, or is this just a please guess for me post?
got tools, got a real scan tool?
is this a 5 buck code reader that misses most codes.
or a real one (ask for good tools)
if a real tool, it will show all codes, and you must know them all
or go astray. P0841? present? too>?
42RLE box.::: one code only, my guess.
i have this car, (m/t) and full FSM, on it,
Ill decode this and tell you what page to read in the FSM
it shows what to do next and the tests to prove this out.
P= power train
P1 means factory code ( so dont read ford codes)
SOLENOID SWITCH VALVE LATCHED IN TCC POSITION
TCC means torque converter clutch. lock up device. failure.
that means transmission, (id didnt say its bad)
the transmission on your car is automatic, unlike my stick
it has a TCM brain, hidden in the PCM brain
but its real and there. for sure. inside.
and it shifts for you, this brain,. in DRIVE
here is the 1st page on this code. in fsm book.
The Solenoid Switch Valve, an internal, hydraulically operated valve, controls the direction of the transmission
fluid when the LR solenoid is energized. When the solenoid switch valve is in the downshifted position and the
LR solenoid is energized, fluid is directed to the LR element for 1st gear. When the solenoid switch valve is In
the up-shifted position (2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear) and the LR solenoid is energized, fluid is directed into the
Lockup Switch Valve which controls the Torque Converter Clutch. When shifting into 1st gear, a special
sequence is followed to insure solenoid switch valve movement into the downshifted position. The LR pressure
switch is monitored to confirm switch valve movement. If the solenoid switch valve movement is not confirmed
(i.e. no LR pressure when the LR solenoid is energized), 2nd gear is substituted for 1st. No 1st gear (2nd gear is
substituted). The transmission Torque converter FEMCC operation is inhibited. MIL on after 5 min. of
Prior to a shift into 1st gear.
RELATED DTC P0841 PRESENT?
(T16) TRANSMISSION CONTROL OUTPUT CIRCUIT OPEN
(T50) L/R PRESSURE SWITCH SENSE CIRCUIT OPEN
(T50) L/R PRESSURE SWITCH SENSE CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
(T50) L/R PRESSURE SWITCH SENSE CIRCUIT SHORT TO VOLTAGE
POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE
the book says have the dealer
do a full transmission check using there (unique) fancy tool..
seems to be good advice.
below is the interface tcm.<> box.
solenoid and read back switches.
if the trans is not bad, then this switch is bad (fibbing)
or the wires rusty there... re-seat them yet?
