Default Verifying location of TCM, for 2000 LW2 wagon

I'm getting a code u2106 (lost contact with TCM/Transmission Control Module) on our 2000 LW2 once more. When this happened about a year ago, the local transmission shop found that reseating the TCM connector made it go away. I'd like to try that, naturally! The only thing is I'm not entirely clear where the TCM module for a 2000 LW2 is located.

I'll try to attach a cellphone pic of the module on top of the intake manifold on the back of the engine, I am tending to think though that this is the PCM and/or BCM.
Any pointers on where to find the TCM module on the 2000 LW2 would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Standing in front of the vehicle, look to the left where a bundle of wires go through the firewall. The TCM is under the cowl.

The pic you have is of the PCM. The BCM can be found behind the glove box.

Default ah, so *that's* where it is, thanks!

Many thanks! I don't think I would have figured that out. For now the u2106 has gone away. Hope that will do the trick.

The first picture is the ECM, it's located under the hood between the engine and the driver side winshield. The PCM is located behind the glove box, and the BCM is on top of the glove box.

You are correct about the ECM in the first picture (below). The drawing is the TCM connector with the TCM hiding under the window cowling.The BCM is inside the car, on top of the glove box. No PCM behind the glove box.

My mistake, It's a TCM in that location on the automatics(L81 engines)
and a PCM in that location on the manuals(l61).
