Start by checking the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.
When a transmission solenoid has malfunctioned, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is dirty, it's recommended to change the transmission fluid and if possible, remove the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a mechanical transmission failure, and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

The clutch pressure control solenoid valve 2 is part of the control solenoid valve assembly, which has no serviceable parts. The pressure control solenoid valve 2 regulates transmission fluid pressure to the 3-5-Reverse clutch regulator valve which controls pressure to the 3-5-Reverse clutch. The Transmission Control Module calculates the gear ratio based on the RPM signals from the input speed sensor (ISS) and the output speed sensor (OSS). The Transmission Control Module compares the expected transmission gear ratio to the calculated gear ratio for each commanded gear. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set when the Transmission Control Module has detected an incorrect gear ratio or neutral condition when the 3-5-R clutch is commanded ON. This condition must occur 3 times.
