The anti-lock break light stays on constantly, and sometimes if I punch the gas to go faster the service light engine comes on and the car loses a little power and sometimes will just completely shut off with no warning. What can this be caused by?

I was doing some research and it seems to be the torque converter clutch solenoid, I was told for an easy fix to unplug the four prong connector on the transmission which I do not know where that is? Was wondering if anyone has a picture or exact whereabouts? Thanks

3.8-liter V-6 is the engine, did not get the codes tried doing that with a mechanic I know and he could not find anything so went somewhere else and this is what I was told to do if I did not want to pay almost 500 dollars to get it replaced

So without even getting codes your going to take wild guess and just replace a part?
