AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE SYSTEM DTC CHECK / CLEAR

Note

When the diagnosis system is changed from normal mode to check mode or vice versa, all DTCs and freeze frame data recorded in normal mode are cleared. Before changing modes, always check and make a note of DTCs and freeze frame data.

Tech Tips


  • DTCs which are stored in the ECM can be displayed on the GTS. The GTS can display the current and pending DTCs.

  • Some DTCs are not stored if the ECM does not detect the same malfunction again during a consecutive driving cycle. However, such malfunctions, detected during only one driving cycle, are stored as pending DTCs.


  1. CHECK DTC


    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Trouble Codes.


      Powertrain > Transmission > Trouble Codes
    5. Check for DTCs and freeze frame data, and write them down.
