I got a code p1747 electronic pressure control solonoid short circuit where is this located and will that cause my truck to throw all the shift solonoid codes

The solenoids are inside the transmission, if you are getting more than one code you may have a problem with the wiring harness going into the trans.

Have a P0757 DTC in a 2007 fusion . reader says that solonoid B is stuck on. need to know how to trouble shoot solonoid ,wiring and connectors all the way to the PCM.

Real Simple

You fail to realize that the Black Fluid is the result of the
former owner not changing the fluid & it was black from
over heating as a result

You are in denile & fail to realize that the clutches have
burned up & that is why the fluid is black

I did once own a trans repair business,so your only option
is to pull the unit & rebuild it

Your Ford Tech had a good idea but didn't want to help you
or hurt your feelings,asumming he knew anything at all about

I could have told you all this without opening the hood,before you
got the car.
No fluid changes every 3 years,the unit comes out

Water wont come in

Eliminate the obvious. Water turned on to machine .Door shut all the way.Next check fill solonoid usually located at bottom front behind kick plate.Be careful ,120 volts should be available at solonoid at some point during cycle use volt meter with caution. you may want to call a tech .If no voltage then it is either bad overflow switch or control or timer or door switch.If there is voltage then solonoid is shot
good luck

Print unable 32 messege

If no paper or label has been found after thoroughly following the troubleshooting steps, it is most likely a mechanical problem. In my case, it was the solonoid. I phoned Brother customer support and they referred me to my local authorized Brother repair shop who replaced the solonoid in less than 24 hours for $98.

I assume you are talking about the print solenoid. It is located under the ribbon deck, just inside the L. printer side frame, it's about an inch and a half in dia. and an inch thick to remove it you must take the printer out of the T/W. If you think it's gummy spray some WD40 down the back of the solenoid.
More than likely the plastic cap is broken. We sell them with instructions and shipping for 20.00.

Depending on which printer you have there should be a red or black lever beside the print solonoid, push to the rear and the P/W should lock into position.
