Engine code p1740


This default is for the transmission operation. The diagnostics detected an out of range condition. It can be a wet electric connector for the shift solenoids, or the flat cable to the trans, or a weak ground. Even an early indication of problems with the Torque Converter lock-up.

The further check will involve taking electric resistance measurements when the connector plug is apart.

You can try using an electrical cleaner and reconnecting the plug. Check ground straps for corrosion.

Clear the computer and drive it for effect. If it comes back on you will need to investigate deeper.

P1740 ford


Four digit codes are brand specific. The only info I have on 1740 for a Ford product involves the transmission but not a specific part.
Its possible the code was a fluke since it went off, but I would want someone to check it out just in case.

My 2007 dodge with 5.9 diesel is showing engine malfunction light and error code of P1740, failed TCC or overdrive solenoid. The truck seems to run ok in overdrive but I don't understand what the TCC...


Code P1740-Torque converter clutch did not lock up when the PCM sent the command. Enabling conditions: No engine or transmissions codes are present, vehicle speed was under 70 MPH, TPS was under 33% open. When the PCM commanded the torque converter to lock, no change was detected in engine speed. Blocking action: This code can block the following monitors: none.

Testing: Check torque converter solenoid for proper operation.

NUMBER: 21-11-00
GROUP: Transmissions
EFFECTIVE DATE: October 02, 2000
SUBJECT: 46RE Transmission MIL Due To DTC P1740 - TCC or OD Solenoid Performance
OVERVIEW: This bulletin involves the replacement of the transmission pressure boost valve cover plate.
MODELS: 2000 - 2001 (AB) Ram Van 2000 - 2001 (AN) Dakota 2000 - 2001 (BR/BE) Ram Truck 2000 - 2001 (DN) Durango

NOTE: THIS BULLETIN APPLIES TO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 46RE TRANSMISSION BUILT BEFORE AUGUST 01, 2000 (MDH O8O1XX).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer may complain of a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination. Upon further analysis, it is determined that the MIL is caused by Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1740 - Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) or overdrive solenoid Performance. Other than the MIL, the customer may not notice any other condition with the transmission.

This condition may be caused by an intermittent and momentary TCC disengagement condition. The transmission valve body pressure boost valve cover plate has been revised with a larger size orifice hole to address this condition.

NOTE: THE DRB III(R) MUST BE OPERATING AT RELEASE LEVEL 50.4 MDS2 SYSTEM CIS CD2067 OR HIGHER (AVAILABLE THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 2, 2000) IN ORDER TO PERFORM THE REVISED TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH STALL TEST. DO NOT USE EARLIER VERSION STALL TEST TO DETERMINE CONDITION OF THE TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH.

Hope helps.

P1740 code on 46re transmission


I would think it is neither,
Your problem is the torque convertor clutch solenoid is not working,You need to have a shop check and replace the solenoid in the valve body of the transmission.

I have 2 engine codes for a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.9 litre p0000,p1740


I have never seen P0000 but P1740 is a standard autotrans code it should have another code with it,P1740 just tells you that the fault is in the automatic transmission.

Transmission code P1740


The transmition is slipping, dodge trucks are noted for their tranny problems, I just replaced mine ($2400)bearly over 100,000 miles on the truck. Watch the engine temp if you keep driving it. It may start to over heat. Get it to a reputable transmition shop ASAP,Some place that garentees/warentees their work.
As for the heat/AC I would check for vacuum leaks. Get either a Hanes or Chilton's manual for it and it will tell you how to check the system.

P1740 trouble code on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500


There is one solenoid assy with two solenoids on it. One for the TCC and other for OD. in my experience, P1740 is caused by a couple of things. The torque converters are a subject of trouble for one - I always replace them - the other are the input sealing rings on the input shaft. Older designs leak pressure. Always replace with the plastic - **** end type which is the update today. P1740 has nothing to with the governor solenoid or sensor

Error codes


Her is the definition and a list of possiable causes.


Code P1740-Torque converter clutch did not lock up when the PCM sent the command. Enabling conditions: No engine or transmissions codes are present, vehicle speed was under 70 MPH, TPS was under 33% open. When the PCM commanded the torque converter to lock, no change was detected in engine speed. Blocking action: This code can block the following monitors: none.
Testing: Check torque converter solenoid for proper operation.
P1740 TCC O/D SOL PERFORMANCE (GAS)
Theory of Operation
The Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Solenoid is used to engage the TCC which improves fuel economy.
When Monitored
The Torque Convertor Clutch (TCC) and Overdrive Clutch (OD) will be tested each time the PCM requests TCC engagement in 3rd gear and OD.
Set Condition
The DTC will set if the expected RPM drop is not achieved while attempting to engage TCC or OD. This indicates a malfunctioning torque convertor or overdrive clutch.
Possible Causes
* ENGINE DTCS PRESENT
* TRANSMISSION DTCS PRESENT
* TRANSMISSION TEMPERATURE TOO COLD
* OIL PAN CONTAINS EXCESSIVE DEBRIS
* 3-4 SHIFT SOLENOID
* SHAFT OR SEAL DAMAGE
* TCC SOLENOID
* TORQUE CONVERTER
