Problem in Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Valve Circuit
Table of contents
P1753 ACURA Possible Causes
- 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
How do I fix code P1753 ACURA?
Check the “Possible Causes” listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector’s pins.
- 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.
Cost of diagnosing the P1753 ACURA code
The cost of diagnosing the P1753 ACURA code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary by location, your vehicle’s make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

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 PCMs command is not appropriate, the PCM detects a malfunction and stores a DTC.
