2002 Cadillac Deville V12 Front Wheel Drive 70400 miles
I have about 71,000 miles on my car and the SES light came on. I had it checked and the codes read P0741 and P1860. It sounds like I may need a new soleniod switch but the guy I took it to started out at $2,500 dollars! The car runs perfect and the transmission is smooth. What should be the cost range at worst to repair this SES indicator?
The 1860 could be caused by a solenoid, it usually overheats and melts the connector. It can also relate to the p0741, but there are other issues that should most likely be addressed if you are going to have the transmission removed for service. The teflon seals in the tcc circuit, as well as the converter itself. Have done many repairs that involve resealing the tcc circuit, and have been bit once by not replacing the converter on a repair. May have been coincidental, but if you are paying the labor to remove, you don't want to have to do it twice. The cost will vary, but figure on 13-15 hours flat rate labor, plus the parts, and the converter can be around $600. That alone puts you in the 1800-2100 range.
