Codes P1298 and P1768

So my poor car listed above has been at the dealer for almost four months now and they can’t seem to figure out what is wrong with my car and I’m starting to think I should try and fix it.

I have the codes P1298 and P1768. That’s transmission was replaced and everything mechanically checks out. It’s a wiring issue and the codes are stored before the car is even turned on. They traced all the wires and everything seems to check out as well so I’m starting to think maybe the Electronic Load Detector is to be the blame as the A/P clutch solenoid is getting some sort of high voltage and nothing to regulate it really which is tripping up the PCM before when powered on. The codes don’t populate until driven for some time. They replaced the solenoids, and the pcm and the issue still exist. The one things I think they haven’t replaced is the ELD.

I’ve been fighting the dealership on this one as I paid for a trans replacement thinking I needed it but just turns out a little wiring issue could be to blame. So they didn’t seem to do any diagnosing and dived right into a trans replacement which is bad shop practices. I just want my car back and I’m working order.
Do you
have the same problem?

Was the transmission shifting hard or not shifting? Is the vehicle drivable at this time and if not, what is happening?

As far as doing this yourself, I have provided the diagnostics below related to both codes. I started with 1768. The first two pics below are the diagnostics.

Pic three below is related to the P1298.

Take a look through them and let me know if you are comfortable doing them.

Take care,


See pics below.
