Diagnosis conditions

  • Solenoid output current: 750 mA or more
  • GND short diagnosis of the solenoid drive circuit is not satisfied.
  • TCM power supply voltage: More than 11 V
  • Harness or connector (Line pressure solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted to power supply)
  • Line pressure solenoid valve

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.CHECK DTC DETECTION
