P0740 TCC (torque convertor clutch circuit) circuit malfunction

The TCC will not cause a transmission to slip but a slipping transmission will cause  P0740, Reving up and down, check for vacuum leaks,that will cause the up and down idle, and also check for coolant leaks, there is a idle control that is controled by the cooling system, When you turn the key and nothing, there is the ignition switch (the electrical part) that seems more like the culprit.
