P0741 torque converter stuck off code

I have a 2004 Toyota corolla LE - my check engine light came on and I went to have a diagnostic done. I have 2 codes, P0741 and P0420. Went to the local dealership and they said I need another transmission, took it to AAMCO, they changed the cat converter earlier this week, but the P0741 code came back, so they replaced the solenoid, after driving home today the check engine light came back on again. When I called the AAMCO they said I will need to drive it around at least 1 1/2 days so the solenoid can clear its cycles. Am I being taken for a ride, and is this a completed transmissions replacement issue?

    After the solenoid cycles itself, will the check enging light go out on its own or will I need to bring it in to have it done?

    I also have a 2004 corolla with the code p0741 that keeps coming up.I beleive that is for the torque converta. What needs to be replaced and how much does it cost

    It's likely to be the ECM (the car's computer). 2004, 2005, etc Corollas may have a bad ECM that often eventually results in those 2 codes (sometimes not, sometimes others, sometimes weird shifting, etc.). see your dealer, there's a recall for some years, and service bulletins on others.

Firstly it could be that the check engine light is mal-functioning or not. why not drive it as they said and if after that its still on get back to us.

Hi there. My check engine light just started coming on (of course the week I decide to sell my car) and the code that came up in the diagnostic was P0741 torque converter clutch solenoid performance. I...


code p0741 refers to the torque converter clutch(TCC) solenoid--performance or stuck off===causes --Wiring-- TCC solenoid. The engine light is telling you that the cpu has found sensors that are out side of set parameters logged in the cpu program. The problem will be in the TCC solenoid either failed or the wiring connectors are dirty or have water in the connection. The fault refers to the unit and not the internals of the gear box which would have showed up with other fault codes.

04 corolla torque converter code


My 2005 corolla is making a horrible noise and shuddering when it comes to a stop. We just had all the solenoids changed and a new ECM that had been recalled by Toyota. We took it out of overdrive and it stopped the noise and the studdering . There have been no codes on this problem as yet.

Any ideas???

P0741 torque converter stuck off code - 2004 Toyota corolla


P0741 deals with internal transmission torque converter slip. A proper scan tool that is capable of reading the sensor's data inside the transmission would show the slipping torque converter and the fluid temperature.
It is critical to know exactly what conditions are present when the code stores. If the codes were not erased, they could be old codes in it's history.

Go back to the transmission shop or where you had the work done on replacing the TCC solenoid and have them read and clear the codes history. As mentioned, they could be old codes that is being read prior to your repairs.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck, Have a shop verify line pressure, and provided no valves in the TCC hydraulic circuit are worn, replace the torque converter. Also, Lubegard Shudder Fix will at least fix this for awhile. Or try a transmission flush by a shop that uses BG brand products.

Code P0741 for the diagnostic for Toyota Corolla 2006 = Check engine light came on. 129,000 miles


This is a torque converter clutch solenoid code internal to the transmission. the computer has detected a fault in the operation of the solenoid. It will need to be diagnosed by a trained technician and may very likely require internal trans repairs.
