Yes,you have to drop the pan and is easy to change. They are notorious for going bad.These tranny's have problems with pressure spike this usually causes front band to go. I'm pretty sure there are two solenoids in the pan area,I would replace them both. They are usually bout 45.00 a piece. I'm going on what happened to my truck.Hope this helps.

Actually, there are 3.
1. Variable force (governor pressure)solenoid
2. 3-4 shift solenoid (overdrive)
3. TCC solenoid (torque converter clutch)
and
Pressure sensor
Temperature sensor

There is also a transmission relay (located in the PDC).
The inlet side of the governor pressure solenoid VALVE is exposed to normal
transmission line pressure. The outlet side of this valve leads to the valve
body governor circuit.
The solenoid regulates the line pressure to produce governor pressure to
the shift valves. The PCM turns on the transmission control relay
which supplies electrical power to the solenoid valve.


The governor pressure transducer provides feedback to the PCM to adequately control governor pressure.

However, besides the governor pressure solenoid, there could be a mechanical
issue with the transmission that prevents it from shifting from 1st to 2nd
(if that is the actual case).

What he needs to find out is whether the M1 - M2 range works, as manually
selection those gears will actuate the transmission shift valves independent
of the shift solenoid.
It's hard to say offhand what the cause is, but if there any slippage from 1-2 indicated
by engine flare (noticible rpm increase during shifting):

1. Governor Circuit electrical fault (including transmission relay in PDC)
2. Valve body malfunction (stuck 1-2 shift valve)
3. Front servo/Kickdown band damaged or burned

my trans wont shift out of 1st gear codes are P0760 shift solenoid c malfunction
The 700 series of P-codes are generic.

You could also get:
P0745 Pressure control solenoid malfunction
P0746 Pressure control solenoid performance or stuck off
P0747 Pressure control solenoid stuck on
Po748 Pressure control solenoid electrical
p0749 Pressure control solenoid intermittent

Po750 Shift Solenoid A malfunction
Po0756 Shift Solenoid B malfunction
Po760 Shift Solenoid C malfunction ***
Po0765 Shift Solenoid D malfunction
Po770 Shift Solenoid E malfunction

Since the generic OBDII codes are applicable to GM/Ford/Chrysler/Honda
and Toyota...it appears that the "C" code is related to Chrysler.

Chrysler has additional transmission codes:
P1740 TCC solenoid or overdrive performance
P1756 Governor pressure not equal to target 15-20 psi
P1757 Governor pressure is above 3 psi when 0 psi requested
P1763 Governor pressure sensor voltage too high
P1764 Governor pressure sensor too low
P1756 Transmission 12 volt suppply relay control circuit
