I been chasing this answer and the WWW is full of contradictory info.

I am getting P0882 TCM input HI.

Im being told its

A: embedded in the ECM
B: Its in the Solenoid Pack
C: The code is coming from the TIPM

I just sent the ECM for review and reflash. The shop could not find anything wrong but suspect the TIPM. Cost me $275

Question remains. Where is the TCM on a 2010 5.7 Gas

good explanation of the code


Causes for this code may include:
Bad relay or blown fuse (fusible link)
Vehicle speed sensor failure
Open or shorted circuits in the CAN Mechanical transmission failure Defective TCM, PCM, or programming error

The P0882 is usually stored because of a defective contact relay

Location is between the air filter & firewall.
i think 4 bolts, it is a tight hand fit

If you completely remove the air filter box, which is real easy to do.
Just disconnect the air hoses & lift the airbox out.

You should be able to access everything

Well, no. See attached photo.

The only thing on the passenger side fire wall is the ECM.

Im suspecting it is, but I was hoping someone would step up and be decisive about this.

Good lord lol.....
You have an RFE transmission newer than 2003. TCM function is integrated into the PCM.
