AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SYSTEM(for 1VD-FTV), Diagnostic DTC:P0778

DTC Code DTC Name
P0778 Pressure Control Solenoid "B" Electrical (Shift Solenoid Valve SL2)

DESCRIPTION

Shifting from 1st to 6th is performed in combination with the ON and OFF operation of the shift solenoid valves SL1, SL2, S1, S2, S3, S4 and SR, which are controlled by the ECM. If an open or short circuit occurs in the shift solenoid valves, the ECM controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves to allow the vehicle to be operated safely Click here.

DTC Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0778

The ECM checks for an open or short in the shift solenoid valve SL2 circuit while driving and shifting gears (1 trip detection logic).

The output signal duty ratio equals 100% (the SL2 output signal duty ratio is less than 100% under normal conditions).


  • Open or short in shift solenoid valve SL2 circuit

  • Shift solenoid valve SL2

  • ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

This DTC indicates an open or short in the shift solenoid valve SL2 circuit. 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, illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC. Also, the ECM performs the fail-safe function and turns the other normally functioning shift solenoid valves ON/OFF. In case of an open or short circuit, the ECM stops sending current to the open or short circuited solenoid.

While driving and shifting gears, if the ECM detects an open or short in the shift solenoid valve SL2 circuit, the ECM determines there is a malfunction Click here.

PROCEDURE


  1. INSPECT NO. 2 TRANSMISSION WIRE (SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE SL2)


    1. A01XB29E01
      *1 Component without harness connected: (No. 2 Transmission Wire)

      Disconnect the No. 2 transmission wire connector.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      2 (SL2+) - 4 (SL2-) 20°C (68°F) 5.0 to 5.6 Ω
      2 (SL2+) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      4 (SL2-) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher

    NG
    OK
  2. CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (NO. 2 TRANSMISSION WIRE - ECM)

    A01X4NIE01

    1. Disconnect the ECM connector.

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

      Standard Resistance
      for LHD
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      C45-17 (SL2+) - C45-16 (SL2-) 20°C (68°F) 5.0 to 5.6 Ω
      C45-17 (SL2+) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      C45-16 (SL2-) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      for RHD
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      C46-17 (SL2+) - C46-16 (SL2-) 20°C (68°F) 5.0 to 5.6 Ω
      C46-17 (SL2+) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      C46-16 (SL2-) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher

    OK
    NG
  3. INSPECT SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE SL2


    1. A01X4SME02
      *a Component without harness connected: (Shift Solenoid Valve SL2)

      Remove the shift solenoid valve SL2.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      1 - 2 20°C (68°F) 5.0 to 5.6 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 (+) with a 21 W bulb → Terminal 1

      • Battery negative (-) → Terminal 2

      Valve moves and makes an operating noise

    OK
    NG
