Trans model is the 4L60E,and the shift solenoids are mounted on the valve body,just inside the bottom pan.There are 2 shift solenoids,one EPC solenoid (Electronic Pressure Control)One TCC PWM solenoid (Torque Convertor Clutch,Pulse Width Modulated),one 3-2 kickdown solenoid,and a manifold pressure switch.As far as a shift solenoid relay switch,i have never heard of that.The power for the transmission solenoids comes through the ignition switch ,and uses a fuse,not a relay.Accessing the solenoids only requires dropping the bottom pan,and the valve body does not have to be removed,to change the solenoids.The shift solenoids are the TWO solenoids right side by side and look identical..They are the only two solenoids inside the pan that are in fact identical.Good luck.

You probably have a big issue but you can try changing the fluid and filter you may get lucky and just have a blocked filter or low fluid but my guess is it is something more catastrophic. Good Luck
