DTC P0741: Torque Converter Clutch Hydraulic Circuit Stuck OFF

Problem is with the torque converter system. The diagnostic guide that my shop uses says to use Honda's scan tool to run through the diagnosis. So sounds like you'll need to take it to a dealer or a transmission shop that has the proper diagnosis tool.

the van will shift normally unless the condition is terminal. The code is for a torque converter clutch that isn't engaging when commanded. The torque converter clutch is a mechanical coupling of the engine to the transmission that is used to reduce slippage over 40 miles per hour. It only engages above that speed, so if its not engaging, you probably won't notice it other than the RPM running higher than normal or the RPM dropping at a higher speed when the clutch does kick in.

On the older Odysseys the condition meant that the transmission needed to be replaced because the passage for the hydraulic fluid that keeps the clutch engaged was blocked by debris from internal wear. That condition was predominant on the 1999-2001 Odysseys. On the 2005, it is unlikely that the transmission is toast.

There is a "Torque Converter Solenoid" that is an electrical device that controls the flow of hydraulic fluid through the passage. If the converter solenoid is not working, the torque converter clutch won't engage. It would seem most likely that the solenoid is the problem rather than the transmission itself.

check the trans fluid; if its pink and clean then the probability is that the solenoid is burnt out. if the fluid is dark or brown and smells burnt, then change the fluid and see if it improves. burnt fluid is not good.

hope that helps
