AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SYSTEM(for 1GD-FTV), Diagnostic DTC:P0720, P0722

DTC Code DTC Name
P0720 Output Speed Sensor Circuit
P0722 Output Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal

DESCRIPTION

This sensor detects the rotation speed of the transmission output shaft and sends signals to the ECM. 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.

P0722 Output Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal

All conditions are met for 5 seconds or more (2 trip detection logic):

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

(b) Either condition is met.


  • Gear position is 1st:

    Transmission revolution sensor (NT) value is more than 1240 rpm.

  • Gear position is 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th:

    Transmission revolution sensor (NT) value is more than 720 rpm.

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

(d) No signal from transmission revolution sensor (SP2) is input to the ECM.


  • Open or short in transmission revolution sensor (SP2) circuit

  • Transmission revolution sensor (SP2)

  • ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

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

If the ECM detects no signal from the transmission revolution sensor (SP2) even while the vehicle is moving, it will conclude that there is a malfunction in the transmission revolution sensor (SP2). The ECM will illuminate the MIL and store the DTC.

  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.

      Tester Display Measurement Item Range Normal Condition Diagnostic Note
      SPD (SP2) Output shaft speed

      SPD (SP2)

      Tech Tips


      • SPD (SP2) is always 0 while driving: Open or short in the sensor or circuit.

      • SPD (SP2) value displayed on the GTS is much lower than the actual vehicle speed: Sensor trouble, improper installation, or intermittent connection trouble of the circuit.

PROCEDURE


  1. READ VALUE USING GTS (SPD (SP2) AND SP2 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.
