I have a recently purchased 1996 XLT that has a transmission problem. It will not shift into overdrive. I have a trouble code (DTC) of P0761 "Shift Solenoid - Check Performance". Where is this shift solenoid? Is it accessible from outside the transmission? How do I check it's performance?

Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the transmission section. The solenoids are located inside of the transmission on the valve body. Check the solenoid on the bulkhead connector on the outside of the transmission.
