you mean kickdown switch? your's got no kickdown solenoid. it is 722.605 transmission.

the ABS valve stuck...the fuse was busted?

what was the corresponding of those P faults that you got?

got power supply on the transmission control module? two connectors on it, 1 connector got 3 wires and 1 wire must have power (maybe red or red/black).

then you better fix the transmission problem first.

no power to the valves means that the ETC control module doesn't supply power to the valves. all switching are done by negative signal.

so check that power supply to the ETC first. you cannot drive the car on 2nd gear all the time.

just go to the ETC control module, switch on ignition, check power to input, then the output connector.

the output connector shoould have 12 volts too and not 5 volts!

or you can just directly check the input power to the electrohydraulic valves by turning on the ignition, go under the car and unplug the transmission connector, and check if there is 1 live (12 volts) feed on it.
