Wouldn't think it would be inside transmission. Should just electrically operate the brake release to rear wheels. don-ohio

Where is the torque converter clutch solenoid?


The torque converter is inside the transmission. The (electric) clutch solenoid - usually - is on the outside of the transmission case.

Get a flashlight, get under the vehicle and look on the transmission case for electrical wires..

The link below will give you a general idea of what it may look like:

Where is the TCC solenoid located


It's in the transmission. Remove the trans pan and it is on the solenoid package. But the solenoid may not be the problem. Could be the wiring, plugs(inside and outside the trans), torque converter, or the computer. 7b32d407-41bb-449c-8dd9-0a5f7effbf7f.gif

How to replace a A/T over run clutch solenoid on a 2006 Nissan frontier truck


what is wrong with the trans? i would start with checking your coolant in radiator and overflow bottle. let truck cool off and check coolant. make sure its nice and clean and green in color. not milky white. start there and let me know. we have seen radiator issues where coolant mixes with trans fluid and destroys trans. other than that those transmissions are pretty bullet proof. if your coolant is milky color, then that is a big problem. you will need new trans and radiator replaced. and to answer your question, the solenoid pack is inside of the transmission bolted to the valve body. you will need to open the unit from the bottom and replace solenoid pack.start with checking coolant first.

FORD LASER 1999: Car stays in intermediate gear, (2nd?) And hold light flashes on (maybe when the brakes put on, im not too sure)


Inside the transmissions lower trans pan upin removal you will see electronic solenoids mounted in there. The 3rd gear solenoid is at fault which neds to be replaced. That will get the trans to shift correctly again. Change the filter and fluid at the sam time as well
The solenoid needs to be purchased at a ford parts department as well

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION GEAR SYSTEM PROBLEM


Yes,that code is a transmission code,pressure control solenoid A.On a Honda trans,there are two solenoids that control line pressure inside the trans.The two of them are made together into one assembly that Honda calls "Linear Solenoids".Most likely they are defective and need replacing,but require testing.They are mounted on the outside of the trans case,so the problem can be repaired without removing the transmission from the car.The actual diagnostic route for that trouble code involves ohms checking the wires from the vehicle computer to the solenoids.Ohms checking the solenoids,amps chekcing the solenoids,and then installing a line pressure gauge on the transmission to test the solenoids mechanically.I rebuild Honda and Acura transmissions on a regular basis,and solenoid failure is not out of the ordinary.Good luck.
