Hello and welcome to just answer. This is a TCC (Torque converter) solenoid fault or the torque converter itself. Remove the transmission pan and inspect for debris and clutch material in the pan. If you see this then the torque conerter has failed and will need to be replaced. If not, then try a new solenoid. The fact that the truck will not even move tells me that it is most likely a failed torque converter. A bad solenoid will not keep it from moving.

I hope this information helps, and let me know if you need further assistance with this.

It was the filter.... Changed it and back to normal. Will I still get charged?
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Wow that filter must have been totally plugged up! I have never seen one that plugged up to cause that code. Glad you got it fixed. I I will opt out of the question so you do not get charged.

It charged me the $18 even though u opted out of the question. Can u give a phone # ***** something to get that fixed? Ur info was helpful and yes filter was very clogged. Gonna change it again in 2 weeks. I like this site and will continue to use it as long as I don't get screwed this time!
Thanks, mike

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The filter was restricted with torque converter clutch debris. This code sets when the converter clutch is commanded on and RPM doesn't drop accordingly, either the clutch slips or doesn't engage at all. The possible causes for this are the solenoid pack, the converter itself or possibly a valve body isue. If you found the filter was restricted then there was little chance that the debris in it wasn't from the failing converter.
