What are the probable causes of DTCs C1226, C1222, C1221, C1233, C1232, C1291, P1106, and P1887?

DTC C1221 LF Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal is 0
C1222 RF Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal is 0
DTC C1226 RF Excessive Wheel Speed Variation
DTC C1232 LF Wheel Speed Circuit Open or Shorted
DTC C1233 RF Wheel Speed Circuit Open or Shorted
DTC C1291 Open Brake Lamp Switch Contacts During Deceleration
DTC C1291 detects an open brake switch. The EBCM looks for deceleration rates that may indicate braking action. The EBCM verifies braking action by repeating the method for finding deceleration rates that indicate braking action several times. In each case, the ABS will not be available because the EBCM does not see the brake switch input.
DTC P1106 Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor Circuit Intermittent High Voltage
DTC P1887 TCC Release Switch Circuit (3.4L)
DTC P1887 TCC Release Switch Circuit (2.4L)
The torque converter clutch (TCC) release switch is part of the automatic transmission fluid pressure (TFP) manual valve position switch. The TFP manual valve position switch is mounted to the transmission valve body. The TCC release switch is normally-closed.
The switch signals the PCM that the TCC is released. This is accomplished by torque converter release fluid pressure acting on the switch contact, thus opening the switch. When the voltage is high on the circuit, the PCM recognizes that the TCC is no longer engaged.
When the PCM determines that the TCC release switch is open (indicating that the TCC is not applied) and the TCC slip speed indicates that the TCC is applied, then DTC P1887 sets. DTC P1887 is a type B DTC.
You have all kind of problems , I suggest you take this to a qualified ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to trouble shoot an repair the vehicle . Electrical testing is a must with open circuits an shorts ,plus hooking up a scan tool that reads sensor data .Not just a code reader like at the parts store . This video he has a Chrysler vehicle ,doesn't matter . Test is the same for all make an models !

TCC Release Swith needs to be fix. How do I do it?

Check your bake lights. If they don\'t come on, replace the brake switch (located on the brake pedal arm, under the dash) This is what controls the TCC solenoid off control. The jerk you feel is the transmission downshifting from overdrive to 4th or 3rd, depending on your transmission. If the lights come on, then you need to trace wires to the transmission to the brake switch or ECM.

2005 Chevy Equinox P0742 & P0700 problems. My car engine flares and sometimes doesn't change gears. Anyone know how to fix these issues.

Both codes (obviously) point to transmission related problems. The DTC P0700 means Transaxle Control System Fault Conditions and the DTC P0742 code means Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) - Stuck On.

The DTC P0700 code is for information only and the next step is to check for transaxle codes in the Transaxle Control Module (TCM). So you'll have to have the dealer or another qualified shop/technician pull the transaxle codes from the TCM and go from there.

On DTC P0742, Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Valve (TCC Sol. Valve) is a normally-open exhaust valve that is used with the Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation Solenoid Valve (TCC PWM Sol. Valve) in order to control fluid acting on the converter clutch apply valve. The TCC Sol. Valve attaches to the transmission case assembly extending into the pump cover. When grounded (energized) by the Vehicle Control Module (VCM), the TCC Sol. Valve stops converter signal oil from exhausting. This causes converter signal oil pressure to increase and move the converter clutch apply valve against spring force and into the apply position. In this position, release fluid is open to an exhaust port and converter feed fluid fills the apply fluid circuit. The converter feed fluid applies the TCC. When the VCM no longer provides a ground path, the TCC Sol. Valve de-energizes and apply fluid exhausts, releasing the TCC.

Condition: Some customers may comment that the transmission shifts hard, a shudder/chuggle is felt on deceleration or the Service Engine Soon (SES) light is illuminated.

A technician may find DTC P0742 set. Customers with 4T80E transaxles may also comment on a "bump" feeling at approximately 61-68 km/h (38-42 mph) when they lift and then tip into the throttle. There may also be a concern of whine noise in 3rd or 4th gear with or without the Service Engine Soon light/message displayed and with DTC P0742 set.


Important: This test is not applicable to the 4T80E transmission. Instead, replace the TCC PWM solenoid on vehicles with a 4T80E transmission using published procedures for the vehicle being serviced.

Perform one of the following diagnostics:
• Test drive the vehicle with the Tech 2® installed, Monitor TCC Release Pressure. The Status will be YES until TCC applies and then the display will read NO. If during acceleration the status remains NO and the upshifts are harsh and during deceleration the vehicle shudders during downshifts, suspect the TCC PWM solenoid.
• With the Tech 2 installed in the vehicle, start the engine. Build the vehicle on the Tech 2®. Apply and firmly hold the service brake. Place the transaxle in D4 and command Drive 3 with the Tech 2®. If the engine stumbles and/or stalls, suspect the TCC PWM solenoid.

Replace the TCC PWM solenoid using published procedures for the vehicle being serviced.

Hope this helps; and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment.

Have a nice day and thanks for using FixYa.

Code po742 comes up on my 1999 silohoutte saying slip detected, or tcc solenoid failure , or blocked trans. range switch. the car kind of bucks while it shifts when this pops up.. it is intermediate... ...

That's a code for Torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid-stuck's either the wiring to the solenoid or the TCC solenoid (replace it)

Good luck, i hope this will FixYa.

PO741 could it be the brake switch and how to know if its the problem 2004 freesatr

EOBD Code: P0741
Faiult location: Torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid - performance or stuck off
Probable cause: Wiring, TCC solenoid

First time check the wires and connection plug & socket of TCC solenoid. If everything will be OK then replace TCC solenoid.

Does not shift ,engine makes whining,rattling sound diagnostic code:0742 displays allfluid levels are topped off,oil,tranny,powersteering,radiator

it doesnt matter if the fluids are topped off?????????????? you need a tcc switch

Circuit Description
The TCC release switch is part of the automatic transmission fluid pressure (TFP) manual valve position switch. The TFP manual valve position switch is mounted to the transmission valve body.
The TCC release switch is a normally-closed switch. When the TCC is released, TCC release fluid pressure opens the TCC release switch which opens the TCC release pressure circuit. When the voltage on the circuit is high, switch open, the PCM recognizes that the TCC is no longer engaged.

If the PCM detects that the TCC release switch is closed when the TCC is commanded OFF, then DTC P0742 sets. DTC P0742 is a type B DTC.

DTC Descriptor
This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTC:

DTC P0742 Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) System - Stuck On

Conditions for Running the DTC
  • No TCC release switch DTC P1887.
  • No TCC PWM solenoid valve DTC P2761.
  • The engine speed is greater than 500 RPM for 5 seconds and not in fuel cut off.
  • The engine torque is 95 - 270 Nm (70 - 200 ft. lbs.) .
  • The TP indicated angle is 5-45 percent.
  • The transmission fluid temperature is between 20°C (68°F) and 130°C (266°F) .
  • The TCC is commanded OFF.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
The TCC release switch is closed 6 times for 4 seconds each, during one trip.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

  • The PCM illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) during the second consecutive trip in which the conditions for setting the DTC are met.
  • The PCM commands maximum line pressure.
  • The PCM commands the TCC ON at maximum capacity.
  • The PCM freezes transmission adaptive functions.
  • The PCM records the operating conditions when the Conditions for Setting the DTC are met. The PCM stores this information as Freeze Frame and Failure Records.
  • The PCM stores DTC P0742 in PCM history.
Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC

  • The PCM turns OFF the MIL during the third consecutive trip in which the diagnostic test runs and passes.
  • A scan tool can clear the MIL/DTC.
  • The PCM clears the DTC from PCM history if the vehicle completes 40 warm-up cycles without an emission-related diagnostic fault occurring.
  • The PCM cancels the DTC default actions when the ignition switch is OFF long enough in order to power down the PCM.
Diagnostic Aids

Test Description
The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.

  1. A Yes answer indicates that the TCC release switch is functioning properly.
  1. With the 20-way connector disconnected, the PCM should interpret the open circuit as TCC release pressure present.
  2. The TCC release switch is a normally closed switch and must be disconnected to properly test for a short to ground condition. An open condition in the TCC release circuit or switch would set DTC P1887. Open circuits are not diagnosed in DTC P0742.
  1. This step tests for a mechanical or hydraulic condition that would cause the TCC to be stuck ON.

Wont shift into drive or overdrive

Check and replace the transmission tcc switch. You will need to drain and remove trans-pan to access the tcc switch located in front of the valve body.
