Tow/Haul light flashing

Tow/Haul started flashing today. Noticed temp gauge in the red and CTS shows temp all over the place. I know it's not running hot because I have a mechanical gauge as well. It's setting a P0712 code for the TFT sensor. I've read that it's a pretty common issue. Anyone have the Ford part number for the sensor?

Anyone know this number? I've found after market sensors and numbers but no luck on the Ford number.

Have you checked your codes? The tow haul flash is the transmissions check engine light

That is the part I used on mine.
I had replaced the sensor bout 2 months ago but it started acting up again last week. I installed a new wire harness last night and it works fine now.
Harness part is 4C3Z-7G276-AA if you need it.
Not as easy as just swapping the sensor but doable....
