Toyota Venza: Input / Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction (P0715,P0717)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / U660e Automatic Transmission / Transaxle / Automatic Transaxle System / Input / Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction (P0715,P0717)

DESCRIPTION

This sensor detects the rotation speed of the turbine which shows the input revolution (speed) of the transaxle. By comparing the input turbine speed signal (NT) with the counter gear speed sensor signal (NC), the TCM detects the shift timing of the gears and appropriately controls the engine torque and hydraulic pressure according to various conditions, thus, providing smooth gear shifts.

P0715

When the speed sensor input voltage is either more than 1.9 V or less than 0.1 V for 4.5 seconds or more.(1-trip detection logic)

  • Transmission revolution sensor (speed sensor NT)
  • Transmission wire
  • TCM

P0717

ECM detects conditions (a), (b) and (c) continuously for 5 sec. or more: (1-trip detection logic)

(a) Vehicle speed: 50 km/h (31 mph) or more

(b) Park/neutral position switch (R) is OFF

(c) Speed sensor (NT): less than 300 rpm

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The NT terminal of the TCM detects a revolution signal from the speed sensor (NT) (input RPM). The TCM calculates gear shifts comparing the speed sensor (NT) with the speed sensor (NC).

While the vehicle is operating in 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th gear with the shift lever in D, if the input shaft revolution (speed) is less than 300 rpm*1 although the output shaft revolution (speed) is more than 1000 rpm*2, the TCM interprets this as a fault, illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC.

*1: Pulse is not output or is irregularly output.

*2: The vehicle speed is 50 km/h (31 mph) or more.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

Perform the universal trip to clear permanent DTCs (See page ).


HINT:

Using the Techstream 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.

NOTICE:

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 Techstream to the DLC3.
  4. Turn the ignition switch to ON.
  5. Turn the Techstream on.
  6. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / ECT / Data List.
  7. According to the display on the Techstream, read the Data List. TCM

    Measurement Item/Range

    Normal Condition

    Diagnostic Note

    SPD (NT)

    Input shaft speed/

    Min.: 0 rpm

    Max.: 12750 rpm

    Lock-up is

    • ON (after warming up engine): Input turbine speed (NT) is equal to engine speed
    • OFF (idling with shift lever in N): Input turbine speed (NT) is nearly equal to engine speed

    Data is displayed in increments of 50 rpm

    HINT:

    • SPD (NT) is always 0 while driving: Open or short in the sensor or circuit.
    • SPD (NT) is always more than 0 and less than 300 rpm while driving the vehicle at 50 km/h (31 mph) or more: Sensor trouble, improper installation, or intermittent connection trouble of the circuit.

PROCEDURE

1.

INSPECT SPEED SENSOR (SENSOR INSTALLATION)

(a) Remove the valve body assembly.

(b) Make sure that the connector is properly connected, and check the speed sensor installation.

OK:

The installation bolt is tightened properly and there is no clearance between the sensor and transaxle case.
