AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P0798

DTC Code DTC Name
P0798 Pressure Control Solenoid "C" Electrical (Shift Solenoid Valve SL3)

DESCRIPTION

Changing from 1st to 6th is performed by the TCM turning shift solenoid valves SL1, SL2, SL3, SL4 and SL on and off. If an open or short circuit occurs in any of the shift solenoid valves, the TCM controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves to allow the vehicle to be operated Click here.

DTC Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0798 An open or short circuit (output signal duty is 0% or 100%) is detected by the TCM in the shift solenoid valve SL3 circuit while driving and shifting gears (SL3 output signal duty is more than 0% and less than 100% under normal conditions) (1-trip detection logic).
  • Open or short in shift solenoid valve SL3 circuit

  • Shift solenoid valve SL3

  • TCM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The TCM commands gear shifts by turning the shift solenoid valves on or off. When there is an open or short circuit in any shift solenoid valve circuit, the TCM detects the problem, illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC. The TCM also performs the fail-safe function and turns the other normal shift solenoid valves on or off (in case of an open or short circuit, the TCM stops sending current to the circuit) Click here.

PROCEDURE


  1. INSPECT TRANSMISSION WIRE (SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE SL3)


    1. A006TIVE06
      Text in Illustration
      *1

      Component without TCM connected

      (Transmission Wire)

      Remove the TCM.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      16 (SL3+) - 15 (SL3-) 20°C (68°F) 5.0 to 5.6 Ω
      16 (SL3+) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      15 (SL3-) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      16 (SL3+) - All other terminals except 15 (SL3-) Always 10 kΩ or higher
      15 (SL3-) - All other terminals except 16 (SL3+) Always 10 kΩ or higher

    NG
    OK
  2. INSPECT SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE SL3


    1. A006TVEE05
      Text in Illustration
      *1

      Component without harness connected

      (Shift Solenoid Valve SL3)

      Remove shift solenoid valve SL3.

    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

    NG
    OK
