AODE to 4R70W harness question

I have a 95 bird and a 97 mark viii parts car. Im putting the mark motor in using my bird harness. Is there any way to make the 4r70w tranny work with the bird harness?Thanks.

They are both 4R70W. I thought it is supposed to hook right up. Wasn't the wiring change for the 98's and up?

Im not sure. I thought I read somewhere that the 4r70w had an extra solenoid or sensor or something and something about the plugs being different.

They are both 4R70W's and the connector should be the same. You need to use your TCC solenoid though from your 95 in the 97 trans.

It's inside the transmission. Pan needs to come off to access it.

You are gonna want to keep all the parts on the '97 tranny, except for that TCC solenoid. You can find its location in the tech articles.

Yes the solenoid goes into the valve body, but you only need to swap the solenoid. Swapping anything else would be taking a step backwards in terms of design.

Would it be a good idea to go ahead and just use all of my t-bird solenoids in the mark tranny?

No. Just change out the TCC solenoid.

Got the TCC solenoid changed over and the birds tranny harness hooked up. Just out of curiosity why do you change over the TCC solenoid?

Because the resistances are different between the two solenoids and using the incorrect one will damage the PCM or otherwise cause a malfunction.
