Question Is it possible to BLOCK a Transmission Fault Code P0740 from triggering the SES lamp?

I still get the Torque Converter Clutch Too Much Slip Fault P0740 triggering my SES (Service Engine Soon) Lamp.

Before I would get the SES about once a week or 50 - 100 miles of driving. I always clear the code using the PASoft.

Car is driving perfectly fine on the code-my MPGs are the same and I don't sense any usual shifting or slippage in the transmission that comes with the code P0740.

Since May-June I rarely get the SES code and it comes up once in a month of driving (around 500 - 1,000 miles).

My car still has less than 78,000 miles and I don't plan on replacing the Torque Convertor until (or if) I have to replace the entire Transmission since the Torque Convertor Clutch labor comes out to be the same as replacing the entire Transmission.

I also read replacing just the Torque Convertor don't always clear the p0740 code or it brings up other Transmission codes like the dreaded p0741.


So is there a way to block the p0740 from setting off the SES lamp? Even if the code pops up?

TCC issue could be either valve body solenoid issue or the actual clutch. it does not affect drivability but as for codes there is nothing you can do.
