Chevrolet Factory Service Bulletin P0742 OBDII Code
When the PCM detects low torque converter slip when the PCM commands the TCC OFF, then is sets the P0742 code.
The Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) solenoid valve is a normally-open exhaust valve that is used with the Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) solenoid valve in order to control fluid acting on the converter clutch apply valve. The TCC solenoid valve attaches to the transmission case assembly extending into the pump cover. When grounded (energized) by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), the TCC solenoid valve stops converter signal oil from exhausting. This causes converter signal oil pressure to increase and move the converter clutch apply valve against spring force and into the apply position. In this position, release fluid is open to an exhaust port and converter feed fluid fills the apply fluid circuit. The converter feed fluid applies the TCC.
