Linear Solenoid Is Good But Transmission Still Not Shifting

A/T Pressure Control Solenoid (1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 2.0L Honda CR-V)

If you've tested the A/T pressure control solenoid (linear solenoid) and it's good and your Honda's transmission isn't slipping, yet a P1768 is ever present, there's a good chance that there a problem in the wiring between your Honda CR-V's PCM and the solenoid's eléctrical connector.

What I would do, and what I'm recommending you do, is to check the continuity of both wires between the solenoid's electrical connector and the PCM's connector with a multimeter (you'll need a wiring diagram for this test).

If continuity is present in both, then you've eliminated a short (or open-circuit problem) in the wiring.

Also, and especially after finding no faults in the wiring, there's a good chance that you'll have to replace the A/T pressure control solenoid to completely eliminate it as the source of the problem. I know this isn't something you want to hear, but in some cases this is a necessary thing.

Now, if your Honda's transmission is slipping, then replacing the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid (linear solenoid) isn't gonna' help bring the transmission back to normal. Slippage is a direct result of internal damage to the friction discs or hard parts. The only way to solve a slippage issue is overhauling the transmission.
