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.

    What would the cost of said replacement and labor be?

    If the problem is the torque converter (it can be the lock up switch) then you are looking at about $1000.00 parts and labor.

    I had a guy tell me that it is the Transmission that made the TCC go bad, and that the trans is also changed about 99% of the time when the TCC goes bad. Is this true?

Change transmission fluid and filter. That is what I did and that solved my problem on 2005 Vibe.

Hi there. My check engine light just started coming on (of course the week I decide to sell my car) and the code that came up in the diagnostic was P0741 torque converter clutch solenoid performance. I...


code p0741 refers to the torque converter clutch(TCC) solenoid--performance or stuck off===causes --Wiring-- TCC solenoid. The engine light is telling you that the cpu has found sensors that are out side of set parameters logged in the cpu program. The problem will be in the TCC solenoid either failed or the wiring connectors are dirty or have water in the connection. The fault refers to the unit and not the internals of the gear box which would have showed up with other fault codes.

My Ford Focus 2006 4 cyc has an engine code PO741 on my OB2. What does that mean?


P0741 Torque convertor clutch circuit failure,it is located in the transmission valvle body, it is attatch to the valve body you can remove it seperately as long as your going to own the Ford focus you might as well get use to replacing these all the time,very common transmission issue with todays car. By the way it is sensitive to worn transmission fluid,when you dont service often these are suspectable to failure.

Hello: The code you have P0741 means the torque converter is stuck off. Either the solenoid is bad or the torque converter is bad. Troubleshooting with a GM scanner will help to diagnose this problem. Recommend letting a Transmission shop repair this.
