'93 Probe/MX-6 LS VSS Connection

Hello to the Ford forum! I have had a few of these types of cars, most recently a '93 Probe GT/MTX. The MX-6 has the 2.5L & ATX. This is my first auto and the #$%^&! tranny has started acting up. It shifts 1>2 fine, but kind of gets lost after that and won't grab 3rd! The "HOLD" light on the dash keeps flashing, and the speedo has no reading. I figure it could be one of three things (in order of $):
1. bad VSS
2. bad trans shift computer
3. bad shift solenoid in the trans
4. connection between all or some of the above

I think I found the VSS (way under the starter!). I read in the Haynes manual that this should be pulsing between 0-5vdc with rotation of the drive wheels. My question is where is the other end of the VSS signal connecting to (so I can test it)? I have no clue as to what the intermediate auto trans computer looks like, or where it is. Please help!
