I do not have a solution yet, but I got code P0773. The check engine light has been coming on radomly and sometimes the O/D light comes on blinking for a few minutes. I am trying to find where the lock-up solenoid is and I'm trying to figure out how to test the system to make sure that it is the lock-up solenoid.

I have a 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser that has less than 75,000 miles on it and am getting a P0770 ODB2 reading with a Check Engine Light illuminated. The vehicle will not shift into high gear (4th) but otherwise runs fine. What is involved in diagnosing the problem? What is the worst case scenario and what is the best case scenario from a problem and cost to repair stand point? Thanks, Jeff
