P0712 FLUID TEMP SENSOR A (Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor A Circuit Low) The CVT fluid temperature identified by the TCM is 180В°C (356В°F) or more continuously for 5 seconds or more under the following diagnosis conditions:

Diagnosis conditions

  • Ignition switch: ON
  • TCM power supply voltage: More than 11 V
  • Harness or connector (CVT fluid temperature sensor circuit is shorted to ground)
  • CVT fluid temperature sensor

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

1.PREPARATION BEFORE WORK

If another “DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE” occurs just before, turn ignition switch OFF and wait for at least 10 seconds, then perform the next test.

>> GO TO 2.

2.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE
