01' Dodge 1500 Code.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500
4X4
5.2 L V8

Engine lights been on for a day "ok I lied it's been on for a couple months". Had codes pulled at Auto Zone this morning and came up with "P1740". So what is it and where is it, so I can replace it and take the black tape off the dash that's covering the orange engine light.

Thanks in advance.

P1740 is a transmission code, probably related to the Torque Converter Clutch or Torque Reduction Signal Circuit. This one is probably going to need a trip to a dealer or local transmission center for a complete diagnosis. My software lists it as a manufacturer specific code as opposed to a standard ODBII code.

Yep, you need air in your tires so you can drive it to dealer .

If I did that I'd be as ethical as those places that charge $6.00 a tire to fill them with nitrogen when plain old air is 80% nitrogen by volume anyways! It could be a simple as a wiring problem or loose connector, or as problematic as internal wear and tear. I'm a pretty good shadetree but I don't mess with transmissions other than checking the fluid and replacing it if needed. I'll be happy to check codes and offer suggestions but I leave the actual poking around to people better qualified than me.
