Some info on removing the VB cover. They are Torx 40 bolts. With everything on the top removed as stated above. I removed the lower radiator hose(replacing while it is out) and also removed the front trans mount. Be careful using the torx bit. If the bolts are rusted you might be in trouble. I had one of the bottom ones that was rusted pretty bad and had to remove by notching with a chisel and spinning it with the chisel. The cover will come out the top with some maneuvering.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well that was a bust! Got the new harness in and tested for resistance and got the same reading so I think was a wild goose chase. Any one have any ideas?

Figured I would update this for anyone else looking. So I put everything back together and ordered a TCM off Ebay. Got it back together and cleared all the codes(none were in there), drove it and everything is fine. I don't think I actually fixed anything though since the internal harness checked the same before and after. I drove it about 100 miles and no issues. Got the Ebay TCM and swapped it out and drove around all weekend and no issues. At least I know I have a good TCM to test with when it acts up again. I figure when it acts up I will swap in the "new" TCM and see what happens.
FYI the TCM I got had the same part number as the old one and it swapped fine with no issues. It was one 52.00 shipped so worth it to keep as a test.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
