Pressure Control Solenoid "A" Electrical (Shift Solenoid Valve SL1)

DESCRIPTION

Shifting from 1st to 5th is performed in combination with "ON" and "OFF" operation of the shift solenoid valves SL1, SL2, SL3, S4 and SR which are controlled by the ECM. If an open or short circuit occurs in either of the shift solenoid valves, the ECM controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves to allow the vehicle to be operated smoothly (Fail safe function).

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM commands gear shifts by turning the shift solenoid valves "ON/OFF". When there is an open or short circuit in any shift solenoid valve circuit, the ECM detects the problem and illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC. And the ECM performs the fail-safe function and turns the other normal shift solenoid valves "ON/OFF" (In case of an open or short circuit, the ECM stops sending current to the circuit.) (See page AX-30).

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

1 INSPECT TRANSMISSION WIRE (SL1)

INSPECT TRANSMISSION WIRE (SL1)

(a) Disconnect the transmission wire connector from the transaxle.

(b) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard resistance

(c) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard resistance (Check for short)

2 CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (TRANSMISSION WIRE - ECM)

CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (TRANSMISSION WIRE - ECM)

(a) Connect the transmission wire connector to the transaxle.

(b) Disconnect the connector from the ECM.

(c) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard resistance

(d) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

REPLACE ECM

INSPECT SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE SL1

INSPECT SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE SL1

(a) Remove the shift solenoid valve SL1.

(b) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard resistance

(c) Connect the positive (+) lead with a 21 W bulb to terminal 2 and the negative (-) lead to terminal 1 of the solenoid valve connector, then check the movement of the valve.

OK: The solenoid makes an operating sound.

Mirror Switch Circuit
DESCRIPTION  A switch signal of the outer mirror switch is transmitted to the selected outer mirror control ECU by way of the body ECU. Then, the outer mirror control ECU activates the mirror motor to move the mirror UP, DOWN, RIGHT and LEFT in response to the inputs. HINT: Th ...
