Just FYI the TCM for the 1.5 has no active parts in it. It contains a fuse in it, and then passes data through the module.
Seems like a waste of weight to have this box if you ask me.

It's probably left over from the original transmission that couldn't handle the torque and was replaced. Maybe they eliminated it in the 2.x models? Where's the box?
