02 explorer od off light

The od off light has started turning on and off on its own. Since then I noticed a slight jerk in the transmission. A couple days later the transmission will be in drive but when you gas it. It acts as if its in neutral. Same with reverse. I've seen that in some cases it could be a sensor and in others could be due to the wires shorting out cause ford went the cheap route and just covered the wires in a duct tape type material which eventually melts and then the casing on the wires eventually melt as well causing it to short. Is there any truth to these. If so, are they expensive repairs. Probably not more than a new tranny or tranny rebuild which I'm really hoping it isn't. Having the code checked today. Since I can't drive the truck, anyone know of an auto parts store that rents code readers and where would I plug it in to read the code?

Thanks in advance.
