How to Replace a TCC Solenoid on a 2000 Dodge Neon

by Cayden Conor

The TCC solenoid -- or the torque converter clutch solenoid -- on the 2000 Dodge Neon is also known as the lock-up solenoid. If it malfunctions, the vehicle stalls when you slow down for a stop or a turn because the torque converter stays locked in overdrive. The engine doesn't put out enough torque to move the heavy vehicle at a high gearing at low speeds, lugging the engine and causing it to stall.

Step 1

Open the hood and look down at the transmission. Locate the TCC solenoid on the top of the transmission.

Step 2

Unplug the wiring harness connector. Remove the solenoid from the transmission, using the appropriate socket.

Install the new TCC solenoid and tighten the bolt firmly, but do not over-tighten the bolt or you could damage the sensor. Plug in the sensor, ensuring the connector snaps onto the sensor. Close the hood.
