AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SYSTEM(for 1GD-FTV), Diagnostic DTC:P0715, P0717

DTC Code DTC Name
P0715 Input / Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction
P0717 Input Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal

DESCRIPTION

This sensor detects the rotation speed of the turbine which shows the input turbine speed of the transmission. By comparing the input turbine speed signal (NT) with the output shaft speed sensor signal (SP2), the ECM detects the shift timing of the gears and appropriately controls the engine torque and hydraulic pressure according to various conditions. As a result, the gears shift smoothly.

(a) Park/neutral position switch D input signal is ON.

(b) Gear position is 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th.

(c) Transmission output shaft speed is 1000 rpm or more.

(d) The vehicle speed is 9 km/h (5.6 mph) or more.

(e) Transmission revolution sensor (NT) value is less than 300 rpm.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The transmission revolution sensor (NT) detects the transmission input shaft speed. The ECM calculates gear shifts comparing the transmission revolution sensor (NT) with the transmission revolution sensor (SP2).

While the vehicle is operating in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th gear with the shift lever in D, if the input shaft speed is less than 300 rpm*1 and the output shaft speed is more than 1000 rpm*2, the ECM interprets this as a fault, illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC.

*1: Pulse is not output or is irregularly output.

*2: The vehicle speed is 50 km/h (31 mph) or more.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Tech Tips

After the repair, clear the DTCs and perform the following procedure to check that DTCs are not output.


  1. Perform the D Position Shift Test in Road Test and drive the vehicle for 5 seconds or more at 50 km/h (31 mph) or more.

  1. DATA LIST

    Tech Tips

    Using the GTS to read the Data List allows the values or states of switches, sensors, actuators and other items to be read without removing any parts. This non-intrusive inspection can be very useful because intermittent conditions or signals may be discovered before parts or wiring is disturbed.

    Reading the Data List information early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic time.

    Note

    In the table below, the values listed under "Normal Condition" are reference values. Do not depend solely on these reference values when deciding whether a part is faulty or not.


    1. Warm up the engine.

    2. Turn the ignition switch off.

    3. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    4. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    5. Turn the GTS on.

    6. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List.

    7. According to the display on the GTS, read the Data List.


      Powertrain > Engine > Data List
      Tester Display Measurement Item Range Normal Condition Diagnostic Note

      Max.: 12750 rpm


      • Lock-up on (after warming up the engine): Value from transmission revolution sensor (NT) equal to engine speed

      • Lock-up off (idling with shift lever in N): Value from transmission revolution sensor (NT) nearly equal to engine speed

      Data is displayed in increments of 50 rpm

      Powertrain > Engine > Data List
      Tester Display
      SPD (NT)

      Tech Tips


      • SPD (NT) is always 0 while driving: Open or short in the sensor or circuit.

      • SPD (NT) is always more than 0 and less than 300 rpm while driving the vehicle at 50 km/h (31 mph) or more: Sensor trouble, improper installation, or intermittent connection trouble of the circuit.

PROCEDURE


  1. READ VALUE USING GTS (SPD (NT) AND NT SENSOR VOLTAGE)


    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Turn the GTS on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List.

    5. In accordance with the display on the GTS, read the Data List.
