This trouble code sets when the computer determines the the torque converter clutch is staying on when it is commanded off. This is typically due to a faulty TCC solenoid or a stuck valve in the transmission valve body. Replacing the TCC solenoid and inspecting for free movement of the tcc apply valves is the recommended service procedure.
