I am having the same issue AFTER replacing the torque converter and switch in the transmission. My check engine light was coming on with the transaxle light and the code read to replace these items BUT the transaxle light is still coming on. I am still trying to get an answer on this!

Stealership said that he has seen a number of there. Note: Ford changed suppliers at least once on these torque converters for the AODE transxle.
