Default transmission solenoids

About a month ago my car gave me check engine codes for my shift solenoid. I ordered the tcc pwm solenoid. I also ordered the 1-2, 3-4 solenoid. The part description said the second solenoid I ordered was the a and b solenoid. Could someone tell me if these are the only two I need and where they are on my transmission. She'* a 97 SSEi btw. The codes I got were 0753 0758 and 1860. I hollowed out my catalytic converter temporarily. So I know that'* the o2 sensor code. Any help is appreciated.

You're not going to like where they are at. The transmission has 2 pans. One on the bottom, and one on the side of the transmission(driver side). You need to remove the side pan to access all of the solenoids. This involves either removing the trans completely, or just lowering that one side of the whole engine/trans assembly out just enough to remove the pan. Either way, this is a in depth task that requires tools, jacks, jack stands etc etc.

Yes, there are 2 shift solenoids. I don't recall if they are both the same. But 3rd one you need to replace is the TCC. Torque Converter solenoid.

Those three codes are for 2 shift solenoids and the TCC solenoid.

Your getting codes for all 3 of them. This would indicate that none of the solenoids are getting power. Does it drive at all?

According to the owners manual(I have the same car)...check fuse 5C on the drivers side fuse panel. That provides power to the trans.

Ok please don't laugh. I checked a fuse under the passenger side kick panel and it was bad. Replaced it and now it drives full power.

Yep it definitely was. Should I be concerned about the fuse blowing or do you think it was just a fluke?

Could be a fluke. But don't ever use a higher rated fuse than what is already in their.
