Torque converter is staying in lockup mode and stays there until the pressure bleeds out. So you can either take it to a tranny shop and have the solenoids replaced or unplug the lockup solenoid plug on the front of the transmission you will loose the lockup that way and you might notice some fuel mileage loss.
