the only thing i could find on that code was for a dakota. would the trouble codes be the same? here's what i found:

Service Bulletin Number: 211100
Bulletin Sequence Number: 146
Date of Bulletin: 0010
NHTSA Item Number: SB614660
Make: DODGE TRUCK
Model: DAKOTA
Year: 2000
Component: INTERIOR SYSTEMS:INSTRUMENT PANEL:GAUGE:INDICATOR
Summary: SOME CUSTOMERS MAY COMPLAIN OF A MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP ILLUMINATION DUE TO DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE P1740 - TCC OR OD SOLENOID PERFORMANCE. *TT

and also this:

32,354 miles-- I started to have problems with the vehicle shifting into third gear. They checked the fluid and found it full. They suspected the high reverse seals were bad. The transmission was removed for inspection and found that the clutches were burnt and the seals were hard. They replaced the clutches and seals, back flushed, reassembled and road tested the vehicle.

32,354 miles-- The check engine light had come on. They checked and found code P1740. The Torque converter code. They removed the transmission and found fine metal throughout. Torque converter came apart inside the vehicle. The input shaft was scored where it rides in the pump from the metal. They replaced the input shaft, torque converter, pump, clutches and seals.
