why isnt my transmission working?

Asked by Jul 03, 2017 at 09:07 AM about the 2001 Ford Escape XLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i own a 2001 ford escape, while driving my O/D light started flashing , then
engine light came on ,but no change in performance..the next day when i
stopped at a stop sign it wouldn't move and had to be towed..code on
computer said my Torque converter clutch solenoid was stuck in the "off " I
was told this wouldn't stop my truck from moving? when I disconnected wire
harness from the transmission i noticed it had water and coolant in it ,then
noticed i had a leaking heater hose right above it..i dried it all out and
repaired heater hose but truck still won't engage? what could be the
problem?

Did you clear the codes and or the lights still on?

yes I cleared the codes but still isn't engaging..

I don't think the pump is coming on cause the fluid is showing high on the dip stick?
