Just so you know, and so everybody knows. The ECM will sometimes report a TCC or OD Solenoid fault code, this doesn't always mean it's the solenoid, many times grime makes it's way into the connector and creates a short which will trigger a ECM code or light.
Now for you, you could replace the solenoid if that is the problem. It cost maybe 40-60 bucks, if you go to a dealer it cost alot more. Check out ebay and makcotransmissionparts.com this is where I order parts to do rebuilds.
If you have a 1996 or newer you're going to want to get a solenoid that has 8 pins because the solenoid is actually part of a harness that connects to the governor and sometimes a temperature sensor. Now if you have a mid 1995 or older then you are probably going to want to look for a solenoid that is a 3 pin, if you don't have a lockup torque converter then look for a 2 pin.
The location of the solenoid, in the transmission. Remove the transmission oil pan and you will see the solenoid right in front of you. To remove it you will have to remove the valve body out of the transmission. For the job you just need a inch lbs torque wrench, I prefer a click type with transmission work. With engine work and differentials I like to stick with a beam type. But enough about tools preferences, first check to see if you have a lockup torque converter, chances are you do but some people ordered their truck without it, why IDK... If their isn't a lockup torque converter then this is one reason why that code might show up. Now if the check engine light is on and their is a code then yea most likely the solenoid is busted. The way they had the signaling didn't help with solenoid life, they used a PWM signal.
