It shouldn't lock up until 80kph. So check for a wiring fault, a dodgy solenoid or tcm issue.

How's your temp when it does this? Early lock can be caused by high temp of faulty trans temp sensing. Do a self test.

It can be caused by high engine temp which, won't be picked up by a self test. I found this occurring when my clutch fan went south and engine temp went a bit high. It's logical because converter slip causes extra heat in the system so, they lock it early.
