    Hi

    I did not see the link, showing the location of the (a) shift solenoid. The problem is that the transmission will fall out of 3ard gear, during a drive. The dct code shows P0750, and indicates (solenoid (a) shift performance, stuck off.



    But the real time action is as follows. Transmission will fall out of top gear, at speed. But if you move the shift lever, in and out of (D) to 2/ or first. The transmission will go into top gear, and then fall out again.



    I checked the transmission fluid, and found it to be burnt, and showing high out of range. I will change the filter and trans oil first. Then look a t something else



    The t/s dct code tells me that I should have no top gear, or reverse, well I have reverse, but the only problem is that the top gear will not stay in place when the car is moving on the road. please re send the link showing the location of the (a) solenoid. If you think it may be something else let me know.



    Thanks a bunch!! Tom

You will have to open up the tranny for this one. You need to get to the valve body to get to the solenoid. Below is a link to the pic so you know what exactly you will look for. As for the price, I see that it varies depending on where you get it. Around $60-$115. I guess the local shop may have it between $55-$65.

03 shift solenoid in a ford focus


IT DOESN'T SAY THE SOLENOID IS BAD, JUST THAT IT HAS A PROBLEM IN THE CIRCUIT TO THE SOLENOID, THIS CAN BE WIRING OR THE SOLENOID THAT IS AT ISSUE. THE SOLENOID IS PART OF A PACK OF SHIFT SOLENOIDS AND IT IS LOCATED INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION, YOU MUST REMOVE THE PAN FROM THE TRANSMISSION AND IT IS ATTACHED TO THE VALVE BODY. THIS IS A VERY MESSY JOB BECAUSE THERE IS NO FLUID DRAIN PLUG.

My automatic ford focus is stuck in park and the boot kept popping open on it's own at the beginning of this week.


Are you referring to a transmission shift solenoid, or the shifter lockout solenoid? The shift solenoids, that control the shifting of the transmission, are located internally in the trans, specifically in the valve body. The shifter lockout solenoid, which is the solenoid that prevents you from shifting out of park, without depressing the brake pedal, is located in the shifter assembly itself, below the center console.
The transmission solenoids are located just inside the fluid pan. Here is some info for replacing them. It is acually pretty easy.
The first time this issue happened (at 60k miles) I paid a '''transmission shop $600 to fix it. It just happened again (at 100k miles) and I fixed it myself for about $50. It's a fairly common problem, so I'm posting the symptoms, codes and instructions here to help others.

I own a 2002 '''Ford '''Focus with automatic '''transmission. The symptoms are that the '''transmission disengages (slips out of gear) when it goes into 3rd gear. When the car slows down to 20 miles an hour or so (or when you stop) it re-engages. You can drive the car in 1st or 2nd gear generally. The '''transmission light comes on. There are no noises associated with this problem. If you have this problem then it's probably the "A" '''Solenoid that needs to be replaced. Here's how you make sure that's the case and fix it for $50.

1. You need to pull the diagnostic computer codes. '''Ford will pull them for you for $100. But, you can do it for free by going to AutoZone. They have a loaner computer diagnostic code puller. If you bring the car they'll just do it for you in the parking lot. If you want to borrow the tool then they will want a $200 security deposit. I recommend that you bring the car to them if you it's close. Also, there are lots of small shops that will pull the code for you for free. There's no reason to pay a "diagnostic fee" to pull the computer repair code. This code will tell you Exactly which '''solenoid to replace. It's typically the "A" '''solenoid, though.

2. Once you get the code you need to know which '''solenoid to replace. Here is a list of diagnostic '''solenoid codes:

P0750 SSA SSA '''solenoid circuit failure SSA circuit failed to provide voltage drop across '''solenoid. Circuit open or shorted or PCM driver failure during on-board diagnostic. No reverse gear (short) or no fourth gear (open). Refer to Pinpoint Test A.
P0751 SSA SSA functional failure Mechanical or hydraulic failure of the shift '''solenoid. Not all gears present. REFER to Diagnosis By Symptom (307-01 , DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING).

Location of pcv valve on 03 ford focus


http://www.focushacks.com/images/pcv.jpg
Here's a picture to locate it..
So, when looking at the engine from above, on the right of the exhaust.

Procedure to replace it
1) Lift and support the front end of your car, or drive up on ramps
2) Get under the front of your car. The PCV Valve is located behind the exhaust manifold, a few inches below the valve cover.
3) Push up on the PCV valve to pop it out of the tube, or pull. You can get it out of the rubber tube with some effort.
4) Remove the rubber elbow from the top of the PCV valve. This can be re-used if it's not squishy. It can also be replaced cheaply.
5) Put the elbow on the new PCV Valve
6) Re-attach the elbow to the PCV tube
7) Push the new PCV valve back down into the large rubber tube

2003 Ford Focus p1747 short solenoid error


THIS IS A COMMON CODE.. THIS IS A PRESSURE SELENOID LOCATED INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION.... SOMETIMES CALLED A SHIFT SELENOID... THERE IS A FIRST TO SECOND SHIFT SELENOID AND A SECOND TO THIRD AND A THIRD TO OVERDRIVE... THE SHORT CIRCUIT CODE CAN BE TWO THINGS.. FIRST A BAD SPOT IN WIRING HARNESS CAUSING SHORT CONDITION.. DOUBTFULL... OTHER CONDITION IS THE SELENOID ITS SELF COULD BE GOING BAD DRAWING MORE CURRENT THAN NORMAL. THIS WILL REGISTER THIS CODE....YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE TRANSMISSION PAN TO EXSPOSE THE VALVE BODY.. THERE YOU WILL SEE SEVERAL SHIFT SELENOIDS...WHEN YOU PURCHASE THE REPLACEMENT IT WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD IDEA WHAT TO LOOK FOR....THEY JUST PLUG IN AND 1 OR 2 SCREWS HOLD THEM IN.... LET ME KNOW IF MORE HELP NEEDED
