  • Low transmission fluid level
  • Dirty transmission fluid
  • Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid harness is open or shorted
  • Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid circuit poor electrical connection
  • Faulty Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid

Tech notes

Some 1998–2002 Accord may have a short to ground in the BLK/YEL alternator wire and could cause the ECM/PCM to set the P1753 code and intermittently blow the No. 6 (15A) fuse in the driver’s under-dash fuse/relay box. To fix this problem, you need to repair the damaged wire insulation and replace the blown No. 6 fuse.

Possible symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
  • Transmission will not shift gears.

P1753 Acura Description

The torque converter clutch solenoid valve switches the hydraulic circuit to engage/disengage the torque converter clutch. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is turned ON, hydraulic pressure is applied to the torque converter clutch. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is turned OFF, hydraulic pressure to the torque converter clutch is interrupted.

The powertrain control module (PCM) controls the torque converter clutch solenoid valve. The driver circuit has a diagnostic function that detects and outputs the state of a short or open circuit, and sends a return signal to the PCM. If the return signal during the PCM’s command is not appropriate, the PCM detects a malfunction and stores a DTC.
