Just bought the truck n light was on, checked codes, and that code came up. Just browsing now to find a possible fix.
My problem was I was getting the p1740 code and it kept kicking the torque converter out of lock up. The only fix I was able to find was the valve body tsb and I replaced the torque converter as well. Also performed a rebuild as the vehicle had high mileage.
