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!

P1747


Generallry, codes P1746 and P1747 are both related to the EPC electrical circuits. These codes are only generted by and electrical fault. Inspect the wiring connector at the transmission. You may have have to use a mirror to inpsect the connector on the transmission itself. Disconnect both the transmission connector and the pcm connector and check the white/yellow wire (pin 11 at trans connector and pin 81 and PCM) check this wire for an open circuit, shorts to power or ground.
If the wiring checks ok the PCM driver for the epc has failed and the PCM will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

There are several things that can cause the flashing light. sometimes a simple fix is the change the RABS, this sensor is on the rear differiential and is not too expensive. Change it. Pull th epositive cables off of your batteries fro 15 minutes. Hook them back up and see what happens.
