    So over the weekend my check engine light came on, I thought it was the gas cap not being tight because last week it came on and went off after I tightened it. But this time I checked the code. Picture attached. It did kind of lurch alittle hard when going from park to drive few times. But nothing else. I made a service appointment for Friday. Any experience with this?

    Good news is the failing shift solenoid or circuit is repairable/replaceable, but the dealership will probably tell you it needs a transmission or PCM.
    The code is a circuit code (OPEN) and not a mechanical failure code.

    You can pull the connector OFF of the transmission and look for corrosion or damage to the pins, you might get lucky.

    The suspect pin/circuit is 2nd from the left top row while on your back under the truck looking at the removed connector.

    So here's an update. Service tech checked the connections to the transmission and said he thought it may have been loose. So he cleared the code, and told me to come in if it comes back on. I need to give a shout out to Fairield Toyota in Muncy PA, those guys are awesome. Spent an hour diagnosing my truck, washed it and didn't charge me a cent. I didn't even purchase this truck from them.
