    I have a 2005 Toyota Corolla. Lsst August the P0741 code was triggered and within days the transmission planetery gear failed. Mileage was 75000 however non dealer mechanic was not aware of TSB TC008-04 and warranty for ECU malfunction. After $3400 repair the car drove okay until now (7 months) and once again P0741 code has triggered and the next day the transmission failed again. Mileage is now 81000 and out of warranty. Local Toyota dealer service manager is not aware of any connection between P0741 code and planetery gear failure and doubts Toyota will honor warranty. Could ECU failure described in TSB lead to these transmission crashes and should Toyota honor warranty and replace ECU at no charge? I have documentation from transmission mechanic that P0741 code was trigger at 75000 miles.

    I have code P0741 on my corolla 2004 early production in late 2003. The code is extremly annoying as there in no known problems with my transmission and the car drives smooth.

    VSC error message, and with the code reader I read P014D. I just erase the code and did not come back but have not gone for a long ride with it. What is P014D results for a Toyota Siana 2011 ?

This fix comes from the service manager of a Toyota dealer, he is a online expert named Toyota Ed.

Toyota is aware of this situation. Production changes have ocurred to correct this condition.

Here is what you do: Take your vehicle to your Toyota dealer. Tell them that you have a P-0741 code, and you want them to apply "Toyota Technical Service bulletin TC008-04" to your vehicle. They will perform several tests, and if you vehicle is lower than 5 years old, and less than 60, 000 miles, they will fix it for free. This TSB is covered by the Powertrain Warranty. Additionally, Thay may replace the ECU with an updated unit, and that particular warranty is in effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles.

This will definatly cure your issue

    Hello
    I'm retired now for 10 years and so don't know the exact costs are for this repair, but it would at least be $2500.00 to replace the part requires the rebuilding of the transmission.

I have a 2005 Toyota Corolla. Yesterday, the check engine light came on. I thought the car was running fine. Later, I noticed the car would **** when the auto transmission shifted from 1st gear to 2nd gear. I also noticed when the car was in the Park position and I put it into Reverse, it would **** backwards. The vehicle has 49,200 miles.

Thanks

Terry

I just asked about the TSB on the above issue... They covered 100%. Thank You Toyota! Great support for a 4 year old car!

Check your transmission fluid. This is a common transmission code. Torque converter clutch not locking up. You may or may not notice a difference in the driving. but defininately dont let the issue go without further investigation. the result in this light could cost you a transmission if you drive it too long without repair.

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.

Yellow check engine light came on; code; P0741 refers to possible torque converter problem. car runs fine. what else could it be?


Audi code P0741 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off, THIS IS IN MOST CASES A STUCK TORQUE CONVERTER LOCK UP CLUTCH, U MAY NOT EVEN NOTICE THIS AS ALL GEARS WILL WORK JUST NO TORQUE CONVERTER LOCK UP, U WILL NEED TO VERIFY THE TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH CIRCUIT IS OK AND IF SO REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION TORQUE CONVERTER.
