Default Transmission solenoids

I recently bought an automatic 1994 Ranger and the check engine light has come on. I pulled codes (KOEO) and got 629 and 566. Looks like 629 is torque converter solenoid/circuit failure and 566 is 3-4 shift solenoid/circuit failure.

Thats great and all, but how can I determine if these solenoids have actually failed or if there is a circuitry issue someplace else? Any suggestions would be great...I'd rather not get screwed out of hundreds by a shop to replace these parts if it is something much simpler.

Thanks much.

I'm sorry, I forgot to mention that it is a a4ld transmission on a 2wd ranger. 115k on both the trans and engine. Transmission still appears to shift correctly up to approx 60 mph. Anyway to test the solenoids to see if they are out of spec? Could a different issue be causing a fault for BOTH solenoids at once?
