Need to know what the trouble code numbers are
P0743 is the Torque Converter Circuit Solenoid.The solenoid plug is on the front of the transmission and has a dark green/white and orange/black wire. The dark green/white should have 12V on it from fuse #10 when the ignition is on. The orange/black is a grounding wire from pin 79 of the powertrain controller which should only be grounded when the car is going over 45 mph or so. You could check that the wire is patent between the plug and the powertrain plug (near 0 ohms). The solenoid is a coil or wire so it would have a low, but non-0 resistance, maybe less than an ohm, but still not 0. To really test it you would need an impedence meter, but a good digital ohmmeter should show it to be slightly more resistance than is shown when you test the resistance of the meter leads themselves.If the resistance, the patency, and the 12V supply is all shown to be OK, then I would suspect the solenoid is not functing properly. If you are getting torque converter lock up when you accelerate slowly from 40 to 50 mph then it is working and the code is false.
P1899 Park or neutral position switch stuck in park or gear.
Recap: P0743 Torque converter clutch circuit faulty, P1899 Position switch to park and nutral stuck.
Check the wire harness and look for any clips may be lose or disconnected and wires condition.
Good luck and keep me posted. be glad to help
