E4OD solenoid pack

does anyone know if i have to replace the whole solenoid pack to get the new connector that sticks up out of the tranny or can i just buy the new connector, the prongs down in the connector have broke off and i was wondering if i can just replace the connector or if i need a whole new solenoid pack?

The connector is part of the solenoid pack.

i actually just had mine replaced. the ends of both plugs were green and the pins were so brittle they were stuck in the female end. your best bet is to get a replacement truck side harness (they sell a pig tail you can splice in) and the only to replace the tranny side is to put in a new solenoid pack($200+) i had a shop do this and it was like $350 out the door

I replaced the solenoid pack in the garage and bought a new pigtail for the external wiring harres off of transmissionpartsusa.com and a new pan gasket and filter from napa picked up the new solenoid pack at a tranny shop down the road for $90.00. cost me $150.00 for a new solenoid pack, external connector and filter & gasket.

$90 huh. Must have been a used one. Still ok, they hardly ever go bad. I pay $139 new for e4od and $189 for 4r100/ that's wholesale.

well the tranny guy must have lost so money on that deal or something then, because it was new. i had to cut open the box and bag myself.
he said he gets his parts through a placed called precision. so if you are a tranny guy you might wanna look into their parts it might save you an/or your customers some money.

There are places that rebuild solenoid packs and sell them for new. I will not use one. I have in the past and had multiple problems.

The OD light flashing means there is some problem with the transmission. Usually electrical. That means either the solenoid pack or the transmission range sensor. It could also mean that you speed sensor is bad in the rear axle too.

The solenoid pack is in the pan. It can be replaced without pulling the trans. Theproblem is when rmoveing the pack, it usually breaks the gasket. The broken gskt can be trimed off and the new pack installed without the gskt. Most solenoid replacements do not fix the problem, they hardly ever go bad.
