AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE SYSTEM DATA LIST / ACTIVE TEST


  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 / ECT / Data List.

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

  2. ACTIVE TEST

    Tech Tips

    Using the GTS to perform Active Tests allows relays, VSVs, actuators and other items to be operated without removing any parts. This non-intrusive functional inspection can be very useful because intermittent operation may be discovered before parts or wiring is disturbed. Performing Active Tests early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic time. Data List information can be displayed while performing Active Tests.


    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 / ECT / Active Test.

    7. According to the display on the GTS, perform the Active Test.

      Tester Display Test Part Control Range Diagnostic Note
      Control the Shift Position Operates the shift solenoid valves to allow gears to selected manually.
      • Press "→" button: Upshift occurs

      • Press "←" button: Downshift occurs

      Can be used to check the operation of the shift solenoid valves.

      Upshifts and downshifts should be performed consecutively. A 10-second interval is required between gear changes.

      Do not downshift at high speeds. Doing so will damage the automatic transaxle.

      *: The "Activate the solenoid (SLT)" Active Test is performed to allow confirmation that the line pressure changes. The line pressure changes are confirmed using the same SST that is used for the Hydraulic Test Click here.

      Tech Tips

      Note that the pressure readings for the Active Test and Hydraulic Test are different.
