I have a 5R55E transmission, but these may apply to other Ford transmissions.
I hope these are helpful.

Will an Actron CP9175 read these codes?

98 Explorer 4 Wheel Drive, 6 Cyl. 4.0L SOHC -5R55E+OD Transmission

It has a flashing O/D light but the only code the Actron CP9175 found was p0430

can you recommend a scanner for the DIY. I really don't want to spend the 1.5k on the tool truck for a scanner i will use 3 times a year.

i have a 99 explorer that wont budge its an automatic and when i move the shifter nothing happens no noise no jolt no rpm change and above all no trouble codes does anyone have any ideas i would appreciate any input thanks

Scan shows all 4 codes P0750, P0755, P0760, P0765

I started my 97 4.0 (2000 engine) 4 WD after letting it sit for a week in the cold,
the O/D off light started flashing and the check engine light came on. I had the codes pulled at AZ and all 4 codes came up. I can't imagine that 4 separate solenoids failed at once. Is it likely an electrical issue?
Since it started the trans doesn't shift out of 3rd gear unless I manually drop it to lower gears. And it never goes into OD.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Bob

DTC for 5r55e trans

Thanks to dallasmef for posting DTC for trans. My daughter's '01 Sport Trac is experiencing some trans issues. DTC 768. Have obd tool, Just did not know what code meant. Thanks.

This is just a thought - I am toying with the idea of building a computer based enternainment system for my explorer, hooking up GPS into it for map display, having mobile internet etc etc.

Many of the ready - built programs you can get to do this are able to hook into the on-board vehicle diagnostics presumably via the ODBII port.

I have been wondering if I could take an input from this to provide a set of 'virtual' gauges for engine temp, RPM, road speed including transmission fluid temp and pressure. Is it likely that these values can be read straight off the vehicles diagnostics if I can interface to them?

Might not turn out to be be practical but I do like the idea! Any ODBII experts lurking on the forum?

loose connector

I was right! (go figure) The connector had simply fallen loose. I replaced it, cleared the computer and it's been ok ever since!
