High Tempatures!!!!

Took a 30min drive with the family tonight to go look at Christmas lights in my 2001 excursion. Transmission alarm went off at 192 F. The highest temp was 206 F. The coolest the temp would stay on the ride home was 180 F. Out door temps were 28 F. Excursion has 38k miles on it, and fluid has never been changed. I never tow with this truck. My question # 1-could there be a restriction in the transmission cooler. #2 How can I fix the problem before I cook my transmission?

Ford's temp sensors are notorisly bad. I'd verify trans temps are that high. Probably got a bad temp sensor.

???

Where is the sensor and how should I check it? I have a fluke volt meter, can I read the temp sensor like a thermo couple?

unfortunantly it's part of the solenoid pack. Can't be replaced by itself. Not easy to ck either. I have an electronic thermometer that I stick down the dipstick tube and compare it to what the vehicles is saying.
