The livewire may not pick up some transmission codes. Your best bet is to find someone with AutoEnginuity or Ford's IDS to read the codes.
Is your tow/haul light flashing?

Well I figured it out I feel really foolish an all I found out the truck I own was in some water last year an the Trans took some on old owner fessed up and explained whole story an said he "flushed" Trans with 60 liters of ATF I call bull I think he drain it refilled drove and maybe drained an refilled one more time its been really cold here for 2 weeks now -35C. And it gelled the Trans fluid and stopped the flow got mad yesterday and dragged the truck into the shop with the help of a friend and his 7.3 and let it thaw out over night and drain filled it up with some fresh fluid an hey Trans works fine again perfect actually so I booked it in at my local ford dealer for a proper flush of the Trans I'm also going ahead an changing every possible filter an fluid in the truck I hope there's now more damage but I got the truck cheap enough an have enough spare parts ill be ok ... Anyway appreciate the help I did receive thanks !!!!!!
