95 Pathfinder Transmission problems Still!

Ok, I have seen a trend with the problem so Im reposting...

When my transmission goes into a fail safe type mode...meaning I could be driving and all of a sudden it slips and its like overdrive is off.. or when I stop then take off its like taking off in 3rd gear..no power...
Well when I turn it off/on the E-AT power light flashes light 6-7 times..only after it goes into this mode..

What if any problems could it be associated with the E-AT auto switch...and what the heck is it for anyway.... Just purchased this a month ago

The "E-AT" switch is basically a power button. It increases your revs so you get more pickup.

Now, in my owner's manual it says word for word:
"If the vehicle is driven under extreme conditions, such as excessive wheel spinning and subsequent hard braking, the Fail-safe system may be activated. This will occur even if all electrical circuits are functioning properly. In this case, turn the ignition key "OFF" and wait 3 seconds. Then turn the key back to the "ON" position. The vehicle should return to its normal operating condition. If it does not return to normal operating condition, have your Nissan dealer check the transmission and repair if necessary. "

Instead of taking it to the dealer, see if you can get some fault codes. But hopefully the above will work.

Well, according to the test procedures I so helpfully posted for you, what does that mean?

..not being the foremost expert on Pathfinders as you probably are..can those two parts (revolution Sensor Circuit & Shift Solenoid B) be purchased and replaced? Are they tangible parts I mean, that Joe Average can replace...

I have not done the voltage tests but I figured if the parts were cheap and I had "some" idea of the problem (test results) I would replace them...

The revolution sensor screws into the case from the outside, but you'll have to unbolt the transmission mount and drop the transmission down to get to it. The shift solenoid is completely inside the oilpan, underneath the oil screen and valvebody. You comfy with taking your valvebody off?
