If you know that the torque converter is actually working correctly, I would unhook the battery which will then erase the memory on your computer diagnostic codes and re-check. If the code does not pop back up again when you try to diagnose any engine problems, you have reset the computer, it will also indicate that the torque converter is fine and all you did was pull up a faulty code.

Trouble Code: P0742 This should be looked at by a trusted transmission shop in your area to address this problem. This sometimes does require the replacement of the torque converter itself.
