ECD SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P0705

DTC Code DTC Name
P0705 Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction (PRNDL Input)

DESCRIPTION

The Park/Neutral Position (PNP) switch detects the shift lever position and sends signals to the ECM.

DTC Detection Drive Pattern DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
Ignition switch ON for 60 seconds 2 or more of the P, N, NSW, R and D shift lever position signals are on simultaneously for 2 seconds (2 trip detection logic).
  • Open or short in park/neutral position switch circuit

  • Park/neutral position switch assembly

  • Transmission control switch (shift lock control unit assembly)

  • ECM

The P, N, NSW, R and D shift lever position signals are all off simultaneously for 60 seconds (2 trip detection logic).
The P, N, NSW or R shift lever position signal is on when the shift lever is in M for 2 seconds (2 trip detection logic).

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

This DTC indicates a problem with the park/neutral position switch or the wire harness in the park/neutral position switch circuit.

The park/neutral position switch detects the shift lever position (P, R, N, D or M) and sends a signal to the ECM.

For safety, the engine can only be started when the park/neutral position switch detects that the shift lever is in P or N.

The ECM determines that there is a problem with the switch or related parts if it receives more than 1 position signal simultaneously, or receives no position signal at all.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE


  1. DATA LIST

    Tech Tips

    Using the intelligent tester 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 intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    4. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    5. Turn the intelligent tester on.

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

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