DESCRIPTION

Shifting from 1st to 6th is performed in combination with 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 any of the shift solenoid valves, the ECM controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves 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
P0973 The ECM detects a short in the solenoid valve S1 circuit 2 times when the solenoid valve S1 is operated (1 trip detection logic).
  • Short in shift solenoid valve S1 circuit

  • Shift solenoid valve S1

  • ECM

P0974 The ECM detects an open in the solenoid valve S1 circuit 2 times when the solenoid valve S1 is not operated (1 trip detection logic).
  • Open in shift solenoid valve S1 circuit

  • Shift solenoid valve S1

  • ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

These DTCs indicate an open or short in the shift solenoid valve S1 circuit. 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. When the shift solenoid valve S1 is ON, if its resistance is 8 Ω or less, the ECM determines there is a short in the shift solenoid valve S1 circuit.

When the shift solenoid valve S1 is OFF, if its resistance is 100 kΩ or higher, the ECM determines there is an open in the shift solenoid valve S1 circuit (Click here).

    CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (NO. 1 TRANSMISSION WIRE - ECM)


    1. Disconnect the ECM connector.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Table 1. for LHD
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      C45-9 (S1) - Body ground 20°C (68°F) 11 to 15 Ω
      Table 2. for RHD
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      C46-9 (S1) - Body ground 20°C (68°F) 11 to 15 Ω

    INSPECT SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE S1


    1. A015BYZE01

      Remove the shift solenoid valve S1.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      Shift solenoid valve S1 connector terminal - Shift solenoid valve S1 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 S1 connector

      • Battery negative (-) → Shift solenoid valve S1 body

      Valve moves and makes an operating noise
