AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P0976, P0977

DTC Code DTC Name
P0976 Shift Solenoid "B" Control Circuit Low (Shift Solenoid Valve S2)
P0977 Shift Solenoid "B" Control Circuit High (Shift Solenoid Valve S2)

DESCRIPTION

Shifting from 1st to 4th is performed in combination with the ON and OFF operation of shift solenoid valves S1 and S2, 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 valve to allow the vehicle to be operated safely. Also, the ECM stops sending current to the open or short-circuited solenoid Click here.

DTC Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0976 ECM detects a short in the solenoid valve S2 circuit 2 times when solenoid valve S2 is operated (1-trip detection logic).
  • Short in shift solenoid valve S2 circuit

  • Shift solenoid valve S2

  • ECM

P0977 ECM detects an open in the solenoid valve S2 circuit 2 times when solenoid valve S2 is not operated (1-trip detection logic).
  • Open in shift solenoid valve S2 circuit

  • Shift solenoid valve S2

  • ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

These DTCs indicate an open or short in the shift solenoid valve S2 circuit. When there is an open or short circuit in either shift solenoid valve circuit, the ECM detects the problem, illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC. When shift solenoid valve S2 is ON, if its resistance is 8 Ω or less, the ECM determines there is a short in the shift solenoid valve S2 circuit.

When shift solenoid valve S2 is OFF, if its resistance is 100 kΩ or higher, the ECM determines there is an open in the shift solenoid valve S2 circuit Click here.

      *a

      Component without harness connected

      (Shift Solenoid Valve S2)

      Remove shift solenoid valve S2.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      Shift solenoid valve S2 connector terminal - Shift solenoid valve S2 body 20°C (68°F) 11 to 15 Ω
    3. Apply 12 V battery voltage to the shift solenoid valve and check that the valve moves and makes an operating noise.

      OK
      Measurement Condition Specified Condition

      • Battery positive (+) → Shift solenoid valve S2 connector

      • Battery negative (-) → Shift solenoid valve S2 body

      Valve moves and makes an operating noise

    NG
    OK
