The solenoid is on the left side, just above the pan seam. If you don't use the low range you have 2 options: use a dremel to grind a groove between the ports and reinstall or buy a blank that does the same thing from IPD I think.

Wires have a way of breaking and the relay sometimes doesn't work. You could test the solenoid after you remove it.
