I need to know where the TCM is & Shift Solenoid "C"on 04 Kia Rio

I need to change my TCM and need help locating it. My check engine light comes on fairly regularly. I had it checked and was told the TCM was faulty. Also was told the Shift Solenoid "C" was faulty. Can anyone tell me where these parts are? Are they difficult to change?

Thanks in advance

The TCM is stuffed up in the drivers side dash just left of the steering column on this disposable vehicle. There are 2 modules there. One is a pcm and the other is a tcm. The onewith the large single black plug is the TCM.

My 2004 Kia Rio starts fine but shuts off after 4-5 seconds. The funny thing is if I shift to Drive within the 4-5 seconds, it stays on, but in Park or Neutral, it will shut off.


in the causes for p0753 code there is a shift solenoid ( which you have replaced ) also TCM and a ECM. The transmission TCM (transmission control module ) is responsible for most of the problems so have it checked out especially the wiring and connectors to the TCM

What is a kia rio p1800 error code mean?


the code is for engine torque signal malfunction.its either a short to voltage or ground in between engine computer and transmission computer. or a bad trans computer [tcm] manuel says check for shorts or bad connections at the connectors from ecm to tcm then states if no wire problems found then try a new tcm and if problem goes away then install new tcm.i know those instructions are lame but it comes from the kia service manuel. there are no tsb or recalls listed for that code. so i would recomend take to dealer because they would have a known good tcm to try.plus if you bought the car new then the 10 year 100,000 mile warranty may still be in effect beings how its a powertrain issue so if less than 100,000 miles and you bought it new it wouldnt hurt to ask them if it might be covered

Kia Rio Check Engine Light


check the fuel line hose near the fuel regulator for wear as they tend to leak or corrode causing a gas smell inside the car. My 2000 Kia Sportage just had the same problem with the gas smell inside the car.

Transmission problems


This is what my 04 Kia Rio is doing exactly. I was told that the TCM and Shift Solenoid "C" is faulty. Am trying to figure out how to go about fixing that without paying more than the car is worth. My tech checked with the local Kia dealership and the TCM new is I think around $700. You also have to buy the program to tell this high dollar part what to do and that is right at $100. I have found that sometimes if I let the car warm up and then keep hitting the overdrive button, eventually it starts shifting correctly.
