Toyota Venza: Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Low Input (P0712,P0713)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / U660e Automatic Transmission / Transaxle / Automatic Transaxle System / Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Low Input (P0712,P0713)

DESCRIPTION

The Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) temperature sensor converts the fluid temperature into a resistance value for use by the TCM.


The TCM applies a voltage to the temperature sensor through terminal THO1 of the TCM.

The sensor resistance changes with the transmission fluid temperature. As the temperature becomes higher, the sensor resistance decreases.

One terminal of the sensor is grounded so that the sensor resistance decreases and the voltage goes down as the temperature becomes higher.

The TCM calculates the fluid temperature based on the voltage signal.

DTC No.

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0712

ATF temperature sensor resistance is less than 79 Ω for 0.5 sec. or more (1-trip detection logic)

  • Short in ATF temperature sensor circuit
  • Transmission wire
  • ATF temperature sensor
  • TCM

P0713

ATF temperature sensor resistance is more than 156 kΩ for 0.5 seconds or more. Either of the following conditions is met (1 trip detection logic):

  • Open in ATF temperature sensor circuit
  • Transmission wire
  • ATF temperature sensor
  • TCM

Condition (A): 5 minutes and 45 sec. or more have elapsed after the engine start when engine coolant temperature or intake air temperature is -29.375°C (-20.875°F) or less.

Condition (B): 10 seconds or more have elapsed after the engine start when engine coolant temperature and intake air temperature are more than -29.375°C (- 20.875°F).

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

These DTCs indicate an open or short in the automatic transmission fluid (ATF) temperature sensor circuit. The automatic transmission fluid (ATF) temperature sensor converts ATF temperature into an electrical resistance value. Based on the resistance, the TCM determines the ATF temperature, and the TCM detects an open or short in the ATF temperature circuit. If the resistance value of the ATF temperature is less than 79 Ω*1 or more than 156 kΩ*2, the TCM interprets this as a fault in the ATF sensor or wiring. The TCM will turn on the MIL and store the DTC.

*1: 150°C (302°F) or more is indicated regardless of the actual ATF temperature.

*2: -40°C (-40°F) is indicated regardless of the actual ATF temperature.

HINT:

The ATF temperature can be checked on the Techstream display.

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

    • While engine is cold:

      Equal to ambient temperature

    If value is -40°C (-40°F) or 150°C (302°F), ATF temperature sensor circuit is open or short circuited

    HINT:

    When DTC P0712 is output and the Techstream indicates 150°C (302°F) or more, there is a short circuit.

    When DTC P0713 is output and the Techstream indicates -40°C (-40°F), there is an open circuit.

    Measure the resistance between terminal THO1 (OT) and body ground.

    It is not necessary to inspect the circuit when P0711 is set.
