Vehicle will not shift into overdrive after it gets hot it finally set code 741 tcc code whats that mean

"The PCM controls the torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid valve pulse width modulation (PWM). The solenoid controls the hydraulic fluid for TCC apply and release. When the TCC is applied, the engine is coupled directly to the transmission through the TCC. The TCC slip speed should be near 0.

If the PCM detects high torque converter slip when the TCC is commanded ON, then DTC P0741 sets. DTC P0741 is a type B DTC.

Conditions for Running the DTC
• No TP DTCs P0121, P0122 or P0123.

• No VSS DTCs P0502 or P0503.

• No AT ISS DTCs P0716 or P0717.

• No TCC stuck ON DTC P0742.

• No IMS DTCs P1820, P1822, P1823 or P1825.

No TCC PWM solenoid valve DTC P1860.

• The engine run time is greater than 5 seconds.

• The time since the gear select lever change is greater than 6 seconds.

• The IMS indicates D2, D3 or D4.

• The transmission gear ratio indicates 2nd, 3rd or 4th gear.

• The transmission fluid temperature is 20-133°C (68-271°F).

• The TP angle is 10-50 percent.

• The engine torque is 43-215 N·m (32-159 lb ft).

• The TCC solenoid valve is commanded ON.

Conditions for Setting the DTC
TCC slip speed exceeds its limit for a given torque for 5 seconds.

Refer to Torque Converter Clutch Slip Speed .

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 inhibits 4th gear if the transmission is in hot mode.

• 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 P0741 in PCM history during the second consecutive trip in which the Conditions for Setting the DTC are met.

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.

I have a Pontiac hard to start and will not rev up the code that comes up is PO502

DTC P0502: VSS Circuit Low Input

Circuit Description

The OSS provides vehicle speed information to the PCM. The OSS is a permanent magnet generator mounted to the transaxle case. The OSS produces an AC voltage as the speed sensor rotor teeth pass through the sensor's magnetic field. The AC voltage level increases as the speed of the vehicle increases.

The PCM converts the AC voltage into a digital signal. The PCM uses the vehicle speed signal to determine shift timing, TCC apply, TCC release, and gear ratio calculations. When the PCM detects a low output speed and the vehicle has a large engine speed in a drive gear, then DTC P0502 sets.

Conditions For Running DTC

DTC will run under the following conditions:

  • No MAP sensor DTCs P0107 or P0108.
  • No TP sensor DTCs P0121, P0122, or P0123.
  • No ISS DTCs P0716 or P0717.
  • No TFP manual valve position switch DTC P1810.
  • The transaxle is in a drive range.
  • The throttle angle is greater than 12 percent.
  • The input speed is greater than 1500 RPM.
  • The engine torque is greater than 50 ft. lbs. (68 N.m).

Conditions For Setting DTC

DTC will set under the following condition:

  • Output speed is less than 150 RPM for 3 seconds.

Action Taken By PCM

PCM performs the following if DTC is set:

  • Illuminates MIL after 2 consecutive trips with a failure signal.
  • Freezes shift adapts from being updated.
  • Commands maximum line pressure.
  • Calculates output speed from input speed, engine speed and commanded gear.
DTC P0502 will be stored in PCM history.

The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) may also be referred to as the Output Speed Sensor (OSS).

Your hard start and this code maybe unrelated.

Vehicle Speed Sensor fault

There are three parts of the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) circuit; the VSS, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the wiring between the two. The problem could be in any one, or more, of these parts.
The most likely problem would be with the VSS itself. You can check the VSS signal with a DVOM set to read AC volts. Raise the front wheels off the ground and support the vehicle with jack stands. Never, ever work on a vehicle that is supported by a jack alone. Having a vehicle fall on your chest could ruin your whole day.
Connect the leads of the DVOM to the yellow, C1-64 and purple, C1-65 wires of connector C1 (blue) of the PCM. Be very, very careful you do not damage the connections of the wires. I use a single strand of a multi-strand wire to insert into the connector then connect my leads to that. There is an electrical test kit you can buy but the single strand wire will do quite nicely in a pinch.
Put the key in the ON engine OFF position, place the transmission in DRIVE or NUETRAL and slowly rotate the right front wheel. You should get a reading of 0.4 volts AC. If the reading is good set your DVOM to ohms and measure the resistance of the whole circuit. It should read between 1650 to 3180 ohms. If not you have a problem in the wiring. If both check out good, then the problem is in the PCM.
The PCM will run about $321.45 and about an hour labor to replace and reprogram. The VSS will run about $35.17 and about a half hour to replace. Figure about one hour labor to diagnose the problem. If the problem is in the wiring; that is charged by the actual time it takes to locate and repair the problem.
The VSS is located on the end of the transmission. Remove the right front tire and you will see it. To replace it simply unplug the connector, remove the attaching bolt and remove the VSS from the transmission. Then install the new one, secure the attaching bolt and plug in the connector. Simple as that.

GM service engine code P1870/2000 GMC Sonoma 2.2 cylinder

you jave a biggie here.
here is some info
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the difference between engine speed and transmission output speed. In D3 drive range with the TCC engaged, the engine speed should closely match the transmission output speed. In D4 drive range, with the TCC engaged, the TCC slip speed should be -20 to +60 RPM .

When the PCM detects excessive TCC slip when the TCC should be engaged, then DTC P1870 sets. DTC P1870 is a type B DTC.

  • No TP sensor DTCs P0122 or P0123.
  • No VSS assembly DTCs P0502 or P0503.
  • No TCC solenoid valve DTC P0740.
  • No 1-2 SS valve DTC P0753.
  • No 2-3 SS valve DTC P0758.
  • No 3-2 SS valve assembly DTC P0785.
  • No TCC PWM solenoid valve DTC P1860.
  • The engine is not in fuel cutoff.
  • The engine torque is 40-400 lb ft .
  • The TP angle is 12-50% .
  • The vehicle speed is 56-112 km/h (35-70 mph ).
  • The speed ratio is 0.64-0.95 (the speed ratio is the engine speed divided by the transmission output speed).
  • The engine speed is 1500-3500 RPM .
  • The gear range is D4.
  • The commanded gear is not 1st gear
  • The TFT is between 20-130°C (68-266°F) .
  • The shift solenoid performance diagnostic counters are zero.
