Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
Recently, i had two trouble codes come up on my truck. One was for the governor's sensor and the TCC (torque converter clutch). I took my truck to an auto repair shop and was told that i needed to replace the gov. sensor and the gov. solenoid, so i did. Two days later the check engine light came on again with a code of a P1740, (TCC). What is the problem now? I was told that the there is 2 torque converter solenoids but was also told that there is only one that contains the TCC/o/d lock out all in one. Can you please clarify this for me. Thanks, kim
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

The only time I have ever seen the gov pressure sensor code is if the wrong fluid was used (atf+4 only) the torque converter lock up is in the torque converter,and then it goes into "limp" mode where 1st and 2nd are locked out and 3rd 4th and od work ok if you had the tranny serviced by other than a dealer ask if they used atf+4 only as some garages are using dexroniii with an additive which will not work well.
