Or does she need to drive long distance highway speeds for the MIL to be illuminated. She drove in town and highway near and around her mother's since my first post. If the torque converter solenoid is not locking it should still be dumping raw fuel and throwing a code?
A weak throttle pressure cable? I don't even know what that's supposed to mean. Have you load tested it for strength, or what? Based on what you've said about it, my guess is that you have no concept as to what a TV cable does for a living. And to take it a step further, it sounds like maybe you've been playing with it and possibly created or exacerbated an existing problem.
Be that as it may, I can't see how incorrect line pressure would cause an electronic control DTC to be set. On the other hand, we're not dealing with a DTC here. All powertrain DTC's on OBD-II vehicles are five digit, alpha numeric and always begin with the letter P. To take that further, a transmission DTC will almost certainly be P07xx.
As to the hard code question, even if it's a hard code, the proper operating conditions must be met to set a code and illuminate the MIL, but I'm not going to take the time to determine what those conditions are. However, a qualified individual with proper diagnostic equipment can narrow it down in short order. That's what they get paid to do, and it obvious you haven't had anyone remotely qualified look at it based on the code you supplied.
You just might have to get of your wallet to find out what's going on with the car. A little bit spent on diagnostics and repair now just might save you a lot spent on towing and transmission repair later.
Finally because I forgot... Now it's "dumping raw fuel"? I have no idea what that would have to do with a TCC solenoid. I'm even more confused as to why that little gem never came up before or why you think it's occurring.
