CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSAXLE SYSTEM INITIALIZATION


  1. RESET MEMORY/CALIBRATION

    Note


    • Performing Reset Memory will clear the learned values of the yaw rate and acceleration sensor (Deceleration Sensor Zero Point Calibration) and the CVT oil pressure (CVT Oil Pressure Calibration). Make sure to perform Reset Memory, Deceleration Sensor Zero Point Calibration, and CVT Oil Pressure Calibration if any of the parts in the following table have been replaced.

      Replaced Part

      • Continuously variable transaxle assembly

      • ECM

      • Oil pressure sensor

      • Airbag ECU assembly (Yaw rate and acceleration sensor)

    • After performing Reset Memory, always perform Deceleration Sensor Zero Point Calibration first, and then CVT Oil Pressure Calibration.


    1. Perform Reset Memory


      1. Turn the ignition switch off.

      2. Move the shift lever to P and apply the parking brake.

      3. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

      4. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

        Note

        Do not start the engine.

      5. Turn the GTS on.

      6. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Utility / Reset Memory.

        Note


        • Make sure the shift lever is in P.

        • Make sure that the engine is stopped. To prevent idling vibrations, do not start the engine.

        • Make sure that the ignition switch is ON.

    2. Perform Deceleration Sensor Zero Point Calibration


      1. Turn the ignition switch to ON and wait at least 2 seconds.

      2. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Utility / Deceleration Sensor Zero Point Calibration.

        Note

        Keep the vehicle stopped, level and stable during calibration (Inclination: 0 +/- 0.25°).

        Tech Tips


        • When "Complete" is displayed on the screen, Deceleration Sensor Zero Point Calibration is complete.

        • If "Error" is displayed on the screen and DTC P1589 is output (for the detection conditions for DTC P1589), refer to P1589, the deceleration sensor circuit may be malfunctioning.

        • Shaking or vibrating the vehicle during Deceleration Sensor Zero Point Calibration may cancel calibration. If "Error" is displayed on the screen and DTC P1589 is not output, perform calibration again.

    3. Perform CVT Oil Pressure Calibration


      1. Turn the ignition switch off and wait at least 30 seconds.

      2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and wait at least 2 seconds.

        Note

        Do not start the engine.

        Tech Tips

        CVT Oil Pressure Sensor Zero Point Calibration is performed when the ignition switch is turned ON (engine stopped). However, CVT Oil Pressure Sensor Zero Point Calibration will not be performed under the following conditions:


        • Oil pressure sensor value is 0.065 MPa (0.663 kgf/cm2, 9.43 psi) or more.

        • CVT oil temperature is -5°C (23°F) or less or 120°C (248°F) or more.

      3. Start the engine and wait at least 5 seconds.

      4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Utility / CVT Oil Pressure Calibration.

        Tech Tips


        • During CVT Oil Pressure Calibration, the engine idle speed will increase.

        • When "Complete" is displayed on the screen, CVT Oil Pressure Calibration is complete.

        • The learned values cannot be cleared by only disconnecting and reconnecting the cable to the negative (-) battery terminal.

  2. BLEED AIR FROM OIL PUMP WITH MOTOR ASSEMBLY

    Note

    When replacing the CVT fluid, make sure to bleed the air from the oil pump with motor assembly.


    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 / Stop and Start / Utility / Oil Pump Air Bleeding.

  3. ATF THERMAL DEGRADATION ESTIMATE RESET

    Note

    If either of the following conditions is met, perform ATF Thermal Degradation Estimate Reset.


    • The CVT fluid has been replaced.

      Tech Tips

      If 50000 or more is displayed for the Data List item "ATF Thermal Degradation Estimate", thermal degradation of the CVT fluid is suspected. Perform "ATF Thermal Degradation Estimate Reset" after replacing the CVT fluid.

    • Approximately 50% or more of the CVT fluid has been replaced during a repair of the transmission or a similar operation.


    1. Turn the ignition switch off.

    2. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    3. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

      Note

      Do not start the engine.

    4. Turn the GTS on.

    5. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Utility / ATF Thermal Degradation Estimate Reset.
