Where is the pressure control sensor 2001 ford windstar SEL?


From what I have read about those 2 error codes you are probably best off taking it to a transmission shop.
You'll find information about the P0743 code here http://www.obd-codes.com/p0743 P0743 is a generic error code for all Ford trucks. The P1747 is specifically for the EPC Solenoid Short Circuit
Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) Solenoid, which is inside the transmission. You have to drain the fluid and open the bottom cover pan. Replace the EPC and the filter at minimum; once you have it open you'll be able to find out more.
Good luck with this, it's not going to be a simple fix.

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.

In my 1999 ford expedition, I get code p1747 and it says in your page that it could be a selenoid. Is there a way to find out which selenoid it is?

TO REPLACE SOLENOID BODY,,,,DISCONNECT WIRING HARNESS FROM SOLENOID CONNECTOR THEN DRAIN TRANS FLUID AND REMOVE PAN REMOVE 1 10 MM NUT AND ALL OF THE T30 BOLTS THEN GENTLY PRY DOWN ON SOLENOID ,,,( DON'T TEAR PLATE GASKET BY RAMMING SCREWDRIVER BETWEEN SOLENOID PACK AND TRANNY )... USE CONPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN AROUND SOLENOID CONNECTOR KEEPS DIRT FRON FALLING INTO TRANS.

HOPE THIS HELPS

I have a P1747 code... sluggish transmission


Code definition is Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) Solenoid. This solenoid is located in the trans pan. Driving the explorer without getting it fixed could also wear down other parts in your transmission!
