Dave, I did and THANK YOU so much for taking time to speak with me. He described what is going on with my trans to a tee. He also told me exactly why it's happening. I'm ordering a new sleeve, the valve body seal and then putting it back together. If it works then I'll update my thread. You may have saved me a grand on this.Rob, did you speak to the guy from ZF/Errikson? Was he able to give you direction?
Mark, I pulled out the Mechatronic unit because I was going to send it in as a core unit for another one I was buying. But, I spoke with a guy at Erickson and he said I didn't need a new unit.(I was having the p0705 code) He said I just didn't get my sleeve correctly fitted and it's a common problem. So, I put back in the mechatronic unit and now have that code. I'll check the connector and then if that doesn't work I'll pull the mechatronic unit. At this point it all goes pretty quickly. I'm just tired of it. Seems like I've been chasing one thing after the other lately. My suspension system seems to be full of rust so I'm going to drop the tank and see if it has any water in it.You've got a bad #2 EPRS solenoid on the mechatronics unit, its not the end one directly under the electrical connector, but the one next to it. Its other an open circuited solenoid coil, or when you put the electrical connector back on (assuming you replaced the seal) one of the pins didn't go back in the right hole, or has some kind of garbage on it. If you didn't touch the mechatronics unit it almost has to be an issue in the connector. Worst case just replace the solenoid, which does involve pulling the valve body out and separating it from the mechatronics unit.
