The P0971 code is related to the AWD transfer solenoid, not the Torque Converter Lock-up Solenoid that your eBay clip in post #21 above is for. I believe that there's some functions on the valve body that use the same type/model of solenoid, but I don't know if these two are interchangeable.

Does anyone have a source for the part I need? It seems all of the ones I find are the torque converter ones. Although one of them is 3.5ohms, so maybe that's what I need? Please help.
