Problems if I disconnect TCC wiring?

Hey guys. Theres a car I can get for a decent price, if what I think is wrong is wrong.

Car is a 1993 Grand Am GT, automatic transmission. Apparently, it stalls once it's hot/warm. I have done some research, and more often than not it seems to be the Lock-Up Solenoid is shot. By rights, if this is the case, once I disconnect the wires (theres a plug going into the tranny), the problem should be solved.

Would driving without the lock-up connected routinley create enough heat to cause an issue? Thanks guys.

If it has the 3-speed trans I don't think it'll be a problem. If 4-speed you should change the lockup solenoid, do a filter/fluid change while you're at it. They are cheap $12-$20 at RockAuto. Filters as cheap as $6.

may be cheap for a solenoid but replacing it is the fun part

i always unplug them and call it good but if the vehicle is really super clean and low miles then you may want to have it fixed right
stuck tcc solenoid is very common issue on the 4t60e trannies

ive had to unplug many over the years due to stalling in gear at stop

good luck
