Ford Actuator failure codes

Transmission Outputs
DPS6 has four 3-phase electric motors:

1. Clutch A motor – controls clutch A torque capacity. The Clutch A system is tested for:

a. ATIC faults (P0805) – the ATIC is an internal TCM component that controls motor current.
b. Hall sensor faults (P0806) – each phase has a hall sensor that provides motor position
information
c. Sequence faults (P0809) – as the motor rotates it generates an defined pattern from the 3 hall
sensors, if the sequence of hall sensor patterns is off this code sets.
d. Open circuit (P0900)
e. Short to ground (P0902)
f. Short to power (P0903)
g. Clutch functionally stuck off (P07A2)
h. Clutch functionally stuck on (P07A3)

2. Clutch B motor – controls clutch B torque capacity. The Clutch B system is tested for:

a. ATIC faults (P087A) – the ATIC is an internal TCM component that controls motor current.
b. Hall sensor faults (P087B) – each phase has a hall sensor that provides motor position
information
c. Sequence faults (P087E) – as the motor rotates it generates an defined pattern from the 3 hall
sensors, if the sequence of hall sensor patterns is off this code sets.
d. Open circuit (P090A)
e. Short to ground (P090C)
f. Short to power (P090D)
g. Clutch functionally stuck off (P07A4)
h. Clutch functionally stuck on (P07A5)

14-15 for identifying. I assume 1=A and 2=B.

""I'm actually a service adviser at a Ford dealership. Yes, there are two actuators located in the transmission control module (TCM). These actuators operate the shift actuators (or clutch forks) A and B. Fork A operates gears 1, 3 & 5. Fork B operates 2, 4, 6 and reverse. Unfortunately, the extended coverages on the TCM and clutch assembly do not include the clutch forks. Parts and labor usually comes out to around $1200.00. What we have done in the past is replace the clutch assembly under warranty if applicable, then charge the customer for the additional parts (clutch forks) only, not the labor. Going that route means the customer only pays around $400.00.""

Stuck on or OFF seem to be the common codes. I've heard this can be fixed by replacing motor only and you don't need a reprogram. If you have Experience please add below.

I have the p07a3 code. I'll be fixing soon I hope. Will update. Still Blows my Mind Ford ****** up this bad. I been reading and watching vids for 2 days. Can't Believe I got suckered into this car due to brand trust.

Went to the dealer. Talked to them for a min. Turns out the TCM was replaced at the last service. In the End I called the Dealership that serviced it to get a more detailed account. After replacing the TCM they tried and failed to teach it to the transmission and just through the book at it diagnostic wise. AKA Clutch/actuators. It is probably just the Clutch. It shifts great until it warms up then it become a bitch. So I'm going to build my own removal jig. Now I just need to find the correct current Clutch and a mobile tech for the adaptive programming.
