Unhappy Flashing TOW/HAUL light with CODES

Well...as murphy's law kick in on my Sunday of planned sitting around eating and sucking down some cold ones while watching football...

my 2006 F250 decides to start something new.

The Tow/Haul light came on and started flashing with the CEL light on continuously with an associated shutter in the transmission. I am able to read the codes with my CTS;

P0700- Transmission Control System Malfunction.
P0758- SSB control Circuit Electrical Failure.
P0976- SSB control Circuit Low.

What would the best place to start troubleshooting? or what sensors/controls would be best to replace?

Any advice is greatly appriciated,
Damon

PS- I do not have a good working knowledge of this transmission.

I just found on another forum that the P0758 and P0976 codes point to the;
2-3 shift solenoid.

Is this an easy replacement? Is it located internally or Externally?

the pan gasket is reusable and it's a good time to just dump the fluid and add 7ish more quarts

you may have a wire issue however at least by my untrained diagnostics

Thanks ZMANN,

I notice in your Pic you submitted, there are several Solenoids. Which one is the 2-3 shift Solenoid? Or should I replace all of them while I'm in there? Are they all different? or the same part number....?

Thanks

Well, I really need some more knowledge about this. I there anyone out there with a good working knowledge of this issue. Otherwise, I will leave it up to ford.

Thanks,

FOUND THE PROBLEM. Main transmission wire harness wasn't routed correctly (from previous work) and rubbing on the drive shaft...repaired and rerouted wires...cleared codes and BAM! no more problem.
