I had to pull the valve body to change my OD solenoid. Speaking from experience, if you can't get the vehicle at least two feet off the ground, get some help to put it back together. It takes at least three hands or a great deal of trial and error ingenuity. The park rod is a pain. I did mine with rear wheels on ground and jack stands under the front.
I will pick up a haynes today and do some research. I think I have a 42re but dont know for sure. How can I tell, I have a 97 ZJ 4.0 with AWD. full time, N, and LOW. I also looked at some parts from the link RLC gave me but I am guessing the only way to know if its two or three pin is to drop the pan.... again.....
Well got all the parts in today. About to drop the pan and put everything in. Does anyone know if the valve body has to be removed to change the wiring harness for the OD and TCC solenoid? I guess i will find out when I look but just want to be prepared for anything crazy. Will update with how the fix goes.
Well I got it all changed and now its throwing code 37. Im lost and have no more ideas. Anyone good with transmissions in kentucky near louisville interested in some pizza and beer and some cash. I just feel like giving up on this heap. The money pit of fluid and electronic parts is getting to deep
Does anyone know if I can run the computer test with the key on off thing while the pan is down? Or is it only a stored code as in it wont tell me their is still and issue until I drive it again? Looking for a way to know that each solenoid is working.
I have changed the relay with a known working one. I didnt mean check operation as in start it. Lets say the connection is off of the TCC solenoid and I hook it back up. Will the 37 code drop right then or will it have to be driven for the code to drop? Provided that was the issue.
