If DH can change a light bulb, he can change the TCM. It is located on the driver's side under the dash, to the left of the steering column, mounted to the firewall. It is not very big, maybe 2 inches square and one inch thick.
Disconnect the cable from the negative terminal of the battery.
Unplug the electrical connector.
Remove the module mounting screws and/or nuts (should be in the engine compartment).
Remove the module from the cowl panel.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
Check with NAPA for availability. If they carry it, then you can call Autozone or one of those guys (usually lower prices than NAPA).
BTW, great job troubleshooting your problem!
