Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Code means pressure control solenoids is open. If this is problem, you will experience harsh shifts like a bang into 2nd gear when accelerating hard. The PCM is not sensing the resistance the solenoid's coil should produce thus setting the code. You could have a bad connector, broken wire or bad solenoid. Please check or have everything checked before you start spending money. Remember, you did not fix the vehicle if you kept changing parts until it worked right. You merely spent too much money on a partial rebuild!
