System Description

The CVT senses vehicle operating conditions through various sensors. It always controls the optimum shift position and reduces shifting and lock-up shocks.

TCM FUNCTION

The function of the TCM is to:

  •  Receive input signals sent from various switches and sensors.
  •  Determine required line pressure, shifting point, and lock-up operation.
  •  Send required output signals to the step motor and the respective solenoids.
