    P0740 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfuction code. Is this a relative easy fix or is this a dealer only service problem. Can the parts be purchased at most auto parts stores?

That code, P0740, is a torque converter clutch circuit malfunction, according to the published OBD2 fault codes. You may be able to clear the code by disconnecting the battery for an hour or so. I'd start by doing that, and then drive the car to see if the code comes back. Even if you don't have a code reader, if the car is driving strangely, and you clear the code with a disconnect of the battery, you can tell if it comes back when your check-engine light illuminates and the strange driving conditions return. Sometimes a momentary glitch in the car can trip a code, even if there isn't a real failure, and a reset will clear it for good. If you have a consistent code that returns, then it's time to dig deeper. See if disconnecting the battery for an hour or so clears the fault light and code, and if it comes back. If the disconnect doesn't clear it, you could have a shop clear the code with a scanner, and then see if it returns. Post up what happens and we can continue to figure out the problem.

Hi..
If there an other code?.
If yes Fix the other code first.
If not.
Check if the stop lights work correctly.
Because the Torque converter clucth selenoid, recieve voltage from the brake pedal position switch.
But everything is OK.
I recomend Take the car to a Automotive trans. place.
Because before to replace the selenoid.
Is nessesary do a few test. With a scanner and Pressure tester.
To check if the converter is good.

OK> I hope this information can help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.

2003 HONDA CIVIC LX RADIO CODE I NEED THE CODE TO UNLOCK MY RADIO PLEASE HELP.


The reset code for your radio is located in the glove compartment. There should be a small sticker on the inside of the compartment door, usually near the left side. The sticker has two sets of numbers printed on it. The number set with five digits is your reset code.

Positive feedback is greatly appreciated.

Good luck and God Bless.

Check in the glove compartment or on the arms of the trunk.  You should be looking for a 5 digit number.
