Toyota Venza: Pressure Control Solenoid "A" Performance (Shift Solenoid Valve SL1) (P0746)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / U660e Automatic Transmission / Transaxle / Automatic Transaxle System / Pressure Control Solenoid "A" Performance (Shift Solenoid Valve SL1) (P0746)

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The TCM uses the vehicle speed signal and signals from the transmission speed sensors (NC, NT) to detect the actual gear (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th gear).

Then the TCM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the TCM memory to detect mechanical problems of the shift solenoid valves and valve body.

DTC No.

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0746

The engine revs freely when 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear is commanded (2-trip detection logic).

When either of the following is detected twice (2-trip detection logic):

  • When 5th gear is commanded, 4th gear is engaged.
  • When 6th gear is commanded, 4th gear is engaged
  • Shift solenoid valve SL1 remains open or closed
  • Valve body is blocked
  • Automatic transaxle (clutch, brake or gear etc.)

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The TCM commands gear shifts by turning the shift solenoid valves on and off. According to the input shaft revolution (speed), intermediate (counter) shaft revolution (speed) and output shaft revolution (speed), the TCM detects the actual gear (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th gear). When the gear commanded by the TCM and the actual gear are not the same, the TCM illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC.

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P0746)

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(c) Turn the Techstream on.

(d) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / ECT / Trouble Codes.

(e) Read the DTCs using the Techstream.

2.

PERFORM ACTIVE TEST USING TECHSTREAM

NOTICE:

This test should always be performed with at least 2 people.

(a) Warm up the engine.

(b) Turn the ignition switch off.

(c) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(d) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(e) Turn the Techstream on.

(f) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / ECT / Active Test.

(g) According to the display on the Techstream, perform the Active Test.

HINT:

Comparing the gear commanded by the Active Test with the actual gear enables confirmation of the problem (See page ).


Item

Test Details

Diagnostic Note

Control the Shift Position

[Test Details]

Operates the shift solenoid valves to allow gears to selected manually.

[Others]

  • Press "→" button: Upshift occurs
  • Press "←" button: Downshift occurs

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

NOTICE:

  • This test can be conducted when the vehicle is stopped.
  • When shifting gears using the Active Test function, do not operate the accelerator pedal for 2 seconds before and after shifting gears.

HINT:

The gear commanded by the TCM is shown in the Data List / Shift Status display on the Techstream.

(h) Check the vehicle speed and the gear when the engine speed is 1000 rpm.

HINT:

Because the torque converter has not engaged, it may be difficult to obtain the speeds specified in 4th, 5th, and 6th gear, however a difference of speed should still be evident following each gear change.

HINT:

  • *1: Neutral
  • *2: If shift solenoid SLT is stuck on, the line pressure will be low. Therefore, the amount of torque that can be transmitted by each gear is lower than the normal limit. When the engine power exceeds this lowered limit, the engine speed will increase freely.
  • *3: When shift solenoid SLT is stuck off, gear shifting is normal.
