Pricy sensor on the Explorer

A buddy called me last night & asked if I could help him with his Explorer. He has been getting SES light on/off for the last week or two. He took it to our local shop & after running diag. on the car told him that the tranny pressure was low & that a bad sensor was causeing it. He said the part would run $452.xx. Well my bud lost his mind & asked for my help. I don't have much knowledge in auto. trannys & even less in the Ford platform. I know I am being very vauge, but his is the ONLY info I have right now. As I get more i'll edit this post.

My questions.

Is there really sensors on the Explorer that cost that much ??? (If so Vette parts are staring to look reasonable).

Does anyone have any idea on which sensor it could be & if so how hard it would be to change it ???

Sorry for the lack of info.

I wish I was more familiar with the trannys on these things as mine is about to go and is going to cost alot to repair/replace esp w/ the 4wd...
I would imagine any part for a 4wd transmission is expensive especially when you get into the transfer case etc..,
