Yes, the lock-up converter solenoid is inside of the trans pan in the valve body.

I have an error code P0741 at the 2011 chevrolet captive automatic gearbox what should I check and change? Thank you

DTC P0741: Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) - Stuck Off
Circuit/System Description
The torque converter clutch (TCC) pressure control (PC) solenoid is part of the control solenoid (w/body and TCM) valve assembly and is not serviced separately. The shift solenoid (SS) 1 supplies transmission fluid to the TCC PC solenoid when commanded OFF. The TCC PC solenoid regulates transmission fluid through the TCC regulator valve in the lower valve body and the TCC control valve in the pump, to the TCC when commanded ON and exhausts fluid when commanded OFF. When the TCC is applied, the engine is coupled directly to the transmission.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

I have a 2001 aurora and code p1860 p1860 came up what is this and how much to fix

P1860 All GM - TCC (transmission Torque Converter Clutch) PWM Solenoid Circuit Electrical.
P1860 Description The Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) solenoid valve controls the fluid acting on the converter clutch valve. The converter clutch valve controls the TCC application and release. The solenoid attaches to the control valve body within the transmission. The solenoid receives ignition voltage through circuit 239. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the solenoid by providing a ground path on circuit 418. Current flows through the solenoid coil according to the duty cycle (percentage of ON and OFF time). The TCC PWM solenoid valve provides a smooth engagement of the torque converter clutch by operating during a duty cycle percent of ON time.
When is the code detected? When the PCM detects a continuous open, short to ground or short to power in the TCC PWM solenoid valve circuit, then DTC P1860 sets. DTC P1860 is a type B DTC.

Possible causes - Faulty Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid
- Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid harness is open or shorted
- Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid circuit poor electrical connection. Unless you have a factory manual and very good auto repair skills this is best left to an expert. It is a messy dirty job that requires removing the parts inside the transmission for testing..

Ok my 97 dodge dakota v8 automatic transmission will start without an issue, but as soon as I go from park to drive or reverse it will jerks it, then die, I'm hoping it's not an issue with the torque...

Sounds like the torque converter clutch is locked up. May just need a new TCC solenoid or it could possibly be a failed torque converter. This just happened to me and I figured out that it was in the valve body by disconnecting the connector on the transmission that goes to the solenoids on the valve body. This immediately unlocked the torque converter so I could move it into the garage to get it apart. Then, I changed the complete valve body and that cleared up ALL of my transmission problems!
Good Luck! I hope this helps.

Where is tcc location

The TCC is the "torque converter clutch and it is part of the torque converter, the solenoid that turn it on is inside the transmission attached to the valve body under the transmission pan.

1999 dodge ram take of WOT fine threw all gears and can feel the lock up ingage fine. at 55 mph crusing and heavy accel it goes like its in neutral.

The situation you describe could be (i) low fluid in the torque converter, (ii) a faulty signal to or from the torque clutch solenoids, (iii) a crack in the torque lock up solenoid pipe leading to fluid pressure loss, or (iv) the torque clutch solenoid modulator is faulty. 1) Is there plenty of fluid on dip stick? 2) have the (transmission diagnostic) codes read at Autozone 3) Check that the transmission electrical connector plug socket pins are clean and free of corrosion 4) Check solenoids - Drain fluid, remove transmission pan and remove filter. Now looking at the back edge of the valve control assembly from left to right (as viewed in direction of travel) is the force motor/pressure control solenoid, two identical square shaped solenoids corresponding to '2 to 3 shift' and '1 to 2 shift' and, last on the right, the forward clutch accumulator. On the front edge of the valve assembly, again from left to right, we have torque converter clutch solenoid (A) and immediately above it, pointing straight up, the torque converter lock up solenoid (B) and finally on the left the 'down shift 3 to 2' solenoid. Unplug the torque converter clutch solenoid (A) and using a small screw driver remove the solenoid's retaining clip from the close by slot. Remove the solenoid. Also disconnect and then remove the two securing bolts holding the torque converter lock up solenoid (B) assembly and drop that out. Thoroughly clean both solenoids. Check up the end of the pipe of (B) with the aid of torch and look for any signs of cracks. Check both solenoids across the connector pins for electrical resistance: (B) should have 20 to 25 ohms and (A) should be 10 to 15 ohms. If there is either no or infinite resistance then this indicates either a short or open circuit respectively and the solenoid should be replaced. Note that (B) is an 'on/off' type solenoid and can be opened and closed by applying a 12volt source across the pins; (A) is a 'pulse width modulated' solenoid and so cannot be easily tested for full operation in isolation.

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


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.

Hope helps.

Whats a tcc solenoide

TCC stands for "TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH" this is part of the torque converter of thetransmission and is controlled by an electric solenoid inside the transmission pan attached to the trans valve body.
