Default 2006 Vue 3.5L torque converter problem.

It only has 95,000 miles but I'm getting a P0741 code for Torque Converter Clutch Stuck Off. It shifts through the gears perfectly but has a problem with torque converter lockup. A month or two ago it seemed to work fine when the weather was colder for the first 20-30 minutes of driving. After 30 minutes it would unlock at the slightest touch of the accelerator and may not even lockup again. Now it doesnít seem to lockup at all.

If I command lockup with a scan tool at 60 mph, itís barely perceivable. Maybe a drop in rpm from 2,100 to 2,000 when before it was around 1,700 rpm at that speed. I tested the resistances of the TCC solenoid and clutch pressure control solenoid and they were in spec. and when I put power to them they click solid. Fluid was pretty dark but no junk so I changed it 3 times with the correct Honda fluid a month ago. What do I check next, or is the converter toast?
