I have now installed an on demand TC lock up switch on my Toyota Previa.

It was simple. For now I have a momentary switch and I will install a parallel toggle and a big red light. In my case, in order to trick the ecu, a 15 ohm, 25w resistor needs to be installed from the ECU TC wire to the ground. I have not done this yet but I don't have to worry about codes.

My thread is here: Freezing the Slushbox. Torque Converter on-demand lockup switch.

Thanks for the thread.
