Default Wher eis the Trans Control Module located

2002 PT and the trans no longer shifts out of first. Has a code that says TCM is the issue. Where is the TCM located? Is it in the trans, on the trans, or in a different spot away from the trans? What does it look like, can someone post a picture? My wifes car has high mileage but is in pretty good shape and was running fine before this trans no shift problem. I am not ready to get rid of it as we like driving and playing in this car. So thanks for any info and pictures you can provide.

To my knowledge its the module were the wiring harness plunges into the transmission. On the front side of the trans. might need to pull the battery to see.

According to Haynes, one way to get to it is through the front left wheel well. Precautions are that you ground yourself and the TCM before handling it and that you don't interchange TCM from different year vehicles.
