Q: Torque converter clutch solenoid stuck on

asked by on

The torque converter clutch solenoid is stuck on.

Hi there. This is a very common problem on your car. The solenoid gets stuck, making it just about impossible to drive the vehicle. The torque converter clutch is made to only be turned on at higher speeds and causes some serious stalling issues when the system fails to work properly. In order to replace this solenoid and to verify that the wiring is fine, part of the transmission would need to be disassembled to access it.
