P2762 code definition

The P2762 code means that the torque converter clutch pressure solenoid control circuit range and performance is not in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

What the P2762 code means

The code means that the powertrain control module has found something wrong in the torque converter clutch pressure control solenoid circuit. The vehicle’s computer controls the automatic transmission, and uses different degrees of the torque converter clutch to improve the engine power and the fuel efficiency. When the code appears, it could indicate a problem with the vehicle.

What causes the P2762 code?

The following are the most common causes of the P2762 code:

  • A faulty torque converter clutch pressure control solenoid
  • Defective torque converter
  • Internal transmission fluid passages could have hydraulic blockages
  • Failure of the transmission
  • Low transmission fluid
  • Dirty transmission fluid
  • Faulty PCM
  • Faulty transmission control module

What are the symptoms of the P2762 code?

The symptoms of the code can vary. In some cases, there might not be any detectable symptoms that you notice. In other cases, the torque converter clutch might fail to disengage. You may also find that the engine stalls when you have the engine idling. The shifting might be more difficult, the transmission could slip, it could overheat, and the fuel efficiency could decrease. The malfunction indicator light on your vehicle could also come on. Many times, other codes dealing with lock up, transmission slippage, and the torque converter clutch may show up with the P2762 code.

How does a mechanic diagnose the P2762 code?

The mechanic will use the OBD-II scanner to gather data from your vehicle for a diagnosis. They will also check the transmission fluid to see if it is low and to check for contaminants. If the code returns after they reset the code and test the vehicle, they will know that there is a further issue they need to repair. They will look for shorted wiring and other potential problems as well.

Common mistakes when diagnosing the P2762 code

One of the biggest issues with diagnosing the P2762 code is the fact that some mechanics will overlook wiring malfunctions. They will often replace the torque converter control solenoids or the torque converters rather than tackling the real problem.

How serious is the P2762 code?

When this code occurs, it has the potential to be very serious. It can mean that there are issues with your transmission, and it could be difficult to drive. You may also stall when you are idling at stoplights or stop signs. Your fuel economy could suffer as well. In serious cases, it could also mean that you have to replace the transmission. Taking care of the problem as soon as you notice it will be the best course of action.

What repairs can fix the P2762 code?

The following are some of the repairs that your mechanic might employ when trying to fix the code and repair the vehicle.

  • Check the vehicle using the OBD-II scanner
  • Reset the code, then test drive the vehicle to see if the code comes back
  • Add transmission fluid
  • Replace the pump
  • Replace the transmission
  • Repair or replace circuits and connectors

Additional comments for consideration regarding the P2762 code

When many people see any of the trouble codes in their vehicle, they don’t think much of it. They feel that it might only be a defective sensor and not an actual problem with their vehicle. While that might be the case, especially in older vehicles, it is not something that you want to rely on. Your best bet is always to take the vehicle to a mechanic. They are able to test the vehicle to see if it was a malfunction of the sensor or if it is a more serious problem. Always take care of your vehicle to give it a longer life.

Rodrigo was exactly on time, very professional and friendly. He assessed my car, let me know the exact problem when a previous mechanic from a shop in my area was unable to. I felt he was very honest and sincere letting me know the level of urgency that I deal with the issue. Absolutely no pressure. I will absolutely use Rodrigo the next time I need anything to do with my car and will tell everyone about him. This is such a great service, I will never go to another mechanic again. It is so convenient. I couldn’t be happier. :)
