Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

1 Answer

My 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 keeps giving me trouble codes with the latest one being a P1740. The code before was for the governor sensor which i have had replaced both the governor sensor and the governor solenoid. Now, this P1740 code is the torque converter cluth/ lock out/ O/D is coming up. Is it that i need to replace another sensor or solenoid and are there two torque converter solenoids or or sensors? Appreciate any information that you can give me. Thanks

For a few years, at least in my area, there was a issue with the tcc solenoid. It involved not only replacing the solenoid( dropping the pan and unbolting from the valve body) but also flashing or updating the control module.once both repairs are complete you should have no problems. A good dealer will help you out.

Dodge trouble code P1740 is frightening after reading some of the forums. what is the cheapest way to come to a conclusion before changing the transmission? as far as your expertise go.


I have had vehicles with that code before, and I always find that the governor solenoid, and the governor pressure sensor, both have tiny mesh filtering screens around their fluid intake ports to protect them, and I usually find that they are plugged up completely with fine metal shavings. The transmission governor solenoid and pressure sensor are located next to each other under the transmission oil pan, and are located just rear of the transmission valve body.

That repair will depend on how much other damage the transmission really has (if there is a lot of friction material, or metal fragments in the bottom of the transmission oil pan, or the transmission fluid is dark and smells like a burned up clutch or brakes then the transmission will require more extensive repairs) and the repair could last for just a few days or years depending on the condition of the transmission, and it would be a good idea to change the transmission oil filter if you remove the transmission oil pan. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Po748 can tcc solenoid or vehicle speed sensor cause this code


One question? Did you clear the codes out of the system with a scanner? I believe that's the only way to do it now,unlike the old days when you could rest by disconnecting the battery. Hope this helps.

Truck (2001 Dodge Ram 1500) runs fine. Check


I found that the code is set for:

P1740....TCC Solenoid or Overdrive Solenoid performance

which indicates that a rather inexpensive fix is in order, not a complete transmission replacement!! The TCC is the solenoid which controls the locking of the transmission converter so that you get better gas mileage with no "slippage" while at highway speeds, which is normal when the converter is unlocked as you slow down. If it is locked and the solenoid fails to release it the car will stall when you come to a stop since the fluid in the converter fails to act as a clutch and the engine is connected directly to the transmission input shaft. If it never locks then the oil in the transmission will overheat at highway speeds since ther "slippage" will always be present in the converter cauasing frictional heating of the oil.

Whenever you get a quote from a shop ALWAYS get at least two more!!! No matter what the job is, even a muffler replacement get many quotes. Go to a reliable transmission repair shop and ask for their opinion. In my humble opinion the shop that told you that you need a new transmission is just hungry for work - stay away!!!!

I have 2 engine codes for a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.9 litre p0000,p1740


I have never seen P0000 but P1740 is a standard autotrans code it should have another code with it,P1740 just tells you that the fault is in the automatic transmission.

2001 dodge 1500 automatic wont shift up then agian it works perfect shows code 1762


P1762-GOVERNOR PRESSURE SENSOR OFFSET VOLTS TOO LOW OR HIGH. From what i understand from talking to some people it would be the Sensor that would need to be done. The intermittant issue could be the sensor going bad.
Are you planning on doing this yourself? or having a shop do it?

Trouble code P1740 on 1999 Dodge Ram 2500


I had the same code on my 2001 dodge 2500. The truck wouldn't shift from 3-4. I pulled the trans pan off and replaced a broken spring ($2.00). It is behind a thin plate with 3-4 small torq screws. You don't have to remove the valvebody. Only took me 45 minutes to fix.

I would like to give thanks to Jeff Russel from Teal automotive. He said this is a very common problem. He sells any part for any automatic Transmision and his prices are very affordable.

P1740 trouble code on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500


There is one solenoid assy with two solenoids on it. One for the TCC and other for OD. in my experience, P1740 is caused by a couple of things. The torque converters are a subject of trouble for one - I always replace them - the other are the input sealing rings on the input shaft. Older designs leak pressure. Always replace with the plastic - **** end type which is the update today. P1740 has nothing to with the governor solenoid or sensor
