The transmission oil pan must be removed and the TC solenoid tested, if it works you will need to remove the transmission replace the Torque Converter.

SOURCE: These codes comes out P0741

Your torque converter is not locking up.
The solution is to have the torque converter replaced and the transmission serviced.
Hopefully, you are still under warranty and can get it repaired it for free.
If not, it can get pretty expensive.

Toyota is aware of this situation. Production changes have ocurred to correct this condition.

Here is what you do: Take your vehicle to your Toyota dealer. Tell them that you have a P-0741 code, and you want them to apply "Toyota Technical Service bulletin TC008-04" to your vehicle. They will perform several tests, and if you vehicle is lower than 5 years old, and less than 60, 000 miles, they will fix it for free. This TSB is covered by the Powertrain Warranty. Additionally, Thay may replace the ECU with an updated unit, and that particular warranty is in effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles.

This will definatly cure your issue.

SOURCE: P0741 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance

it's either the tcc solenoid inside the valve body not engaging or the converter itself is on it's way out probably due to bad seal.. change that also if you go the converter route..check also the ground to the solenoid and make sure it's getting enough voltage. make sure the fluid is up to date and flushed before all of the above. and remember after solenoid install car wont drive right for a few miles until computer picks up new solenoid or get new transmission installed

While driving my car over drive light comes on in a few min. the car dies

Does it die at stops or with foot off throttle and coasting? The overdrive light coming on like that is the transmissions equivalent of the engine check engine light. Fault has been detected and code stored. Would suspect with information provided that the torque converter clutch is locking up but not releasing. You may be able to have this code retrieved with an OBD2 scan tool or at local parts store. You are looking for codes in the 700 range as these are all transmission related codes. ie P0741 or P0742. The P0742 is for torque converter clutch stuck on. P0741 is TCC stuck off
