Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla

3 Answers

I recently had the ck engine light come on my 05 toyota corolla CE...ran the scanner on it to pull up the p0741 code. I took it to dealership and thought might be related to ECM issue , they replaced it for free and wondering if thats the cure all for that code. I still notice when I put my car in reverse gear it still idles roughly. If theres still an issue with that code will the new ECM pull that code again so I know if this is a serious issue

Yeah Toyota is aware of this situation.Production changes have occurred to correct this condition.
You did the right thing to take it to the the dealership because when they pulled the code p0741 they had to apply the Toyota Technical Service bulletin TC008-04" to your vehicle.
They had to perform several tests and since you said they replaced the ECU for free it was because your vehicle was lower then 5 years old and less then 60,000 miles. This TBS is covered by the powertrain Warranty. They had to replaced the ECU with an updated unit, and that particular warranty is in effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles. Your car should be back on the road running like a champion and you should NOT have the same code again.

The code P0741, refers to a torque converter (transmission) issue.

Run a good fuel system cleaner through it. If they replaced ECM you shouldn't pull that code again, it's more like a simple dirty fuel filter or condensation in fuel.

Hi there. My check engine light just started coming on (of course the week I decide to sell my car) and the code that came up in the diagnostic was P0741 torque converter clutch solenoid performance. I...


code p0741 refers to the torque converter clutch(TCC) solenoid--performance or stuck off===causes --Wiring-- TCC solenoid. The engine light is telling you that the cpu has found sensors that are out side of set parameters logged in the cpu program. The problem will be in the TCC solenoid either failed or the wiring connectors are dirty or have water in the connection. The fault refers to the unit and not the internals of the gear box which would have showed up with other fault codes.

What does it mean when the check engine light is on while driving Toyota Corolla 2000 CE? thank you, Gregory


Your computer has found an error. It may be a small one, or not. You need to have someone (A garage) put a scanner to it to read it out. They can also reset it with the scanner. But if your computer still senses an error, it will turn the light on again.

2005 toyota corolla light comes on then goes off for a few days e


Did you have engine trouble codes checked? Parts stores will do it for free. Ask them to explain what the codes mean, and what they recommend. If you have any questions, post them here with the code #'s. The engine light can come on if the gas cap is loose, but after securing, should go off. How is the cars performance? Running ok, just engine light coming on?

Engine check light on


My '06 Corolla's CHECK ENGINE light came on the other day and then went out after about a half hour. It was back on this morning and stayed on, and I noticed that the automatic transmission was shifting a bit more roughly than it ever had before. Took the car to a Toyota dealership immediately. The guy told me that Toyota has had an ongoing problem with the CHECK ENGINE light coming on due to a faulty CPU (car's computer "brain"). This has been affecting models from '05, '06, and '07 according to him. He said Toyota had extended the warranty for this particular part (i.e. the CPU) due to it being faulty. The warranty expires once you reach 80,000 miles, and my car has 87,000 miles on it (yes, I do drive that much for my job!). But the guy at the dealership was kind enough to put in a new CPU for free because I have been a good, loyal customer there. The CHECK ENGINE light is now off and it should stay that way.
