Hi, this is a defective OD shift solenoid that is located inside the trans pan. you will have to drop this pan in order to extract it for replacement. this solenoid, if damaged, cant initiate the shift sequence required for the OD to engage during operational procedures.

Simply replacing this solenoid will fix this issue.

NOw, concerning the erratic shifts. this is isolated within the transmission control module. it seems to be malfunctioning. you will need to replace this module as well.

My ford e450 6.8l v10 gasoline engine light on,obd2 shows p0770 transmission solenoid e malfuction,how do i do now? thank you for your help

It means your transmission is starting to go out, and may not shift correctly.
What year is the E or F 450?
If it's still under warranty, the dealer will have to fix it for free.
If not, don't take it to a dealer, you'll need to take it to a professional auto mechanic and they'll either fix it or replace the transmission with a rebuilt one. Either way it's lots of money.

Overdrive button blinking on ford 450 m~home tranny is working ok

That is an "out of parameter" warning, indicating that the position sensor for the overdrive solenoid is disconnected, malfunctioning, or detecting that your overdrive solenoid is out of position. My guess is that the sensor came disconnected but check to be sure.

2002 ford E450 abs light stays on after replacing Front rotors & hub assy. I disconnected neg. battery treminal with no luck to reset. Can you help? troubled

On OBD2 vehicles,1996 & up, You need to disconnect battery for an hour or two to discharge memory in computer. Let it sit disconnected for 2 hours. If you cured the problem it will be out & stay out. If it is on there still is an abs problem. Make sure all abs sensors are connected properly & no broken or crimped wires in their harness.

My 2001 f250 when shifting out of overdrive its not a solid shift! it seems to flutter into overdrive. the truck has 75000 original miles, 1 owner. under extreme acceleration it shifts fine.

has the trans ever been serviced? it should have the fluid and filter changed every 60,000 miles, this may help if it hasn't been done, also check for clutch mud in the pan of the trans..

Transmission slipping

do u have any transmission trouble codes? u should if the OD light is flashing, the light flashes to alert u that a electronic malfunction is occurring in the trans controls, u may just have a bad trans connector or a shift solenoid starting fail due to a shorted field closing coil.
