ELECTRONIC SHIFT LEVER SYSTEM SYSTEM DESCRIPTION


  1. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

    The electronic shift lever system electrically controls the parking lock mechanism using an actuator.

    The transmission control ECU assembly locks/unlocks gearshift control based on lock/unlock request signals from the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly).

    The transmission control ECU assembly receives the theft deterrent status (lock or unlock) from the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly).

    Based on this signal, and other information received from the power management control ECU, the transmission control ECU assembly controls the shift control actuator assembly and other parts of the system.

    The transmission control ECU assembly detects DTCs when there are any malfunctions in the system, and informs the driver of selected malfunctions by illuminating the master warning light, and indicating an error message on the multi-information display.

    Tech Tips

    Depending on the DTC that is stored, the master warning light may not illuminate and an error message may not be displayed on the multi-information display.

  3. FUNCTION OF EACH COMPONENT

    Part Name Function
    Shift Control Actuator Assembly
    • Composed of a parking lock motor and rotation angle sensor. The motor is activated by electric current from the transmission control ECU assembly.

    • Motor rotation is reduced by the cycloid reduction mechanism in the shift control actuator assembly and then output.

    • The rotation angle sensor detects the motor rotation angle with the 2 Hall ICs.

    Transmission Control ECU Assembly
    • The transmission control ECU assembly activates the shift control actuator assembly based on signals from the power management control ECU.

    • The transmission control ECU assembly controls the application timing of current to the parking lock motor based on signals from the rotation angle sensor.

    Parking Lock Mechanism The parking lock pawl rotates according to the movement of the parking lock rod when the parking lock motor rotates, and engages with the parking gear on the transaxle side, causing the parking lock mechanism to lock or unlock.
    Power Management Control ECU The power management control ECU sends a P lock or P unlock demand signal to the transmission control ECU assembly based on information from the shift lever and the P position switch (transmission shift main switch).
    P Position Switch Indicator Light The P position switch indicator light comes on or goes off to indicate the P lock/unlock status. The P position switch indicator light goes off when the electronic shift lever system malfunctions and an error message is displayed on the multi-information display.
    Combination Meter Assembly A malfunction in the transmission control ECU assembly is indicated by the illumination of the master warning light on the combination meter.
  4. OPERATION DESCRIPTION


    1. Operation when switching to park (P):

      B001MT4E04

      1. When the P position switch (transmission shift main switch) is pushed to activate the parking lock, a signal is sent to the power management control ECU.

      2. The power management control ECU determines whether "P lock" is possible or not based on this signal and other vehicle information.

      3. If the power management control ECU determines that "P lock" is possible, it sends a "P lock" operation demand signal to the transmission control ECU assembly.

      4. After receiving the signal, the transmission control ECU assembly activates the shift control actuator assembly in order to lock the parking lock mechanism.

        B001LX9E04
      5. The transmission control ECU assembly controls motor rotation angle based on signals from the rotation angle sensor in the shift control actuator assembly.

        Tech Tips

        B001L84E02

        In the cycloid reduction mechanism, the output shaft is linked to the external gear. Together, they rotate only a single tooth when the eccentric adapter, which is linked to the motor, rotates once. Driving force is increased in this way so that the parking lock mechanism can be switched even when high output is required for parking on a hill, etc.

      6. The P position switch indicator light is illuminated.

    2. Operation to switch from park (P) to a shift state other than park (P):

      B001KE3E03

      1. When the hybrid system is started (the vehicle is ready to be driven) and the shift lever is moved to R, N, or D with the brake pedal depressed, a signal is sent to the power management control ECU.

      2. This signal is then sent from the power management control ECU to the transmission control ECU assembly as a "P lock release" operation demand signal.

      3. After receiving the signal, the transmission control ECU assembly activates the shift control actuator assembly in order to unlock the parking lock mechanism.

        B001N8PE04
      4. The transmission control ECU assembly controls motor rotation angle based on signals from the rotation angle sensor in the shift control actuator assembly.

      5. The P position switch indicator light is turned off.

  5. SHIFT STATE CHANGE FUNCTION


    1. The electronic shift lever system comprehensively determines vehicle conditions and changes the shift state, as shown in the following chart, by cooperating with the shift control function of the hybrid system (except when the reject function described later is in operation).

    2. Other than indicated in the following chart, when the power switch is turned off with the vehicle stopped, the shift state is automatically changed to park (P) and all power is turned off.

      B001KCAE05
  6. REJECT FUNCTION


    1. In the electronic shift lever system, there may be a situation in which a shift state change cannot be done for safety reasons. When attempting to move the shift lever in such a situation, the system sounds a reject buzzer inside the meter and changes the shift state as shown in the following table.

      Selector operation which causes reject function to operate Shift state after rejection
      The shift lever is moved to any position with park (P) selected and the brake pedal not depressed. Remains in park (P)
      The P position switch (transmission shift main switch) is pushed while driving. Changes to neutral (N)
      The shift lever is moved to R with drive (D) selected, or D with reverse (R) selected while the vehicle is moving at 11 km/h (7 mph) or more. Changes to neutral (N)
      The shift lever is moved to B with a shift state other than drive (D) or park (P) selected. Changes to neutral (N)
      The shift lever is moved to B with park (P) selected and the brake pedal depressed. Remains in park (P)
  7. P POSITION SWITCH INDICATOR LIGHT CONTROL


    1. The indicator light comes on when park (P) is selected, goes off when a shift state other than park (P) is selected and goes off when a system malfunction occurs and an error message is displayed on the multi-information display.
