Question about 1996 Dodge Neon
Is the Torque Converter Clutch switch on my 1996 Dodge neon supposed to have continuity or not?
Got a P0740 code on the OB2 reader
The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.
In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

SOURCE: how to replace a TCC switch
Need to remove the valve body from the transaxle. The solenoid is mounted to the valve body. Follow the 2 wire connector that sticks up vertically out of the top of the trans - it is a round connector.

The torque converter is a key functional part of the automatic transmission. The car computer detected a malfunction and set the P0704 code. Most likely you have over 100k miles already so it could be problems with the transmission. Most mechanics will reset the light and code if you are not having any transmission problems. It the problem comes back you will need to service or replace the transmission. Best thing to do is to take the car to a mechanic you trust and find the best and cheapest way to address the malfunction.

The transmission fluid could be in need of a change, certain parts in the transmission depend upon clean fluid to move properly, this could cause the pressure sensor to fail and engage the torque converter to lock up at the right time. Timing is counted with the computer and it will flash lights when there is a problem.
