PHYSICAL VALUES

Fail-safe

The TCM has an electrical fail-safe mode. In this mode TCM operates even if there is an error in a main electronic control input/output signal circuit.

FAIL-SAFE FUNCTION If any malfunction occurs in a sensor or solenoid valve, this function controls the CVT to make driving possible.

Secondary Speed Sensor The shift pattern is changed in accordance with the throttle position when an unexpected signal is sent from the secondary speed sensor to the TCM. The manual mode and "DS" mode are inhibited, and the transaxle is put in "D".

Primary Speed Sensor The shift pattern is changed in accordance with the throttle position and secondary speed (vehicle speed) when an unexpected signal is sent from the primary speed sensor to the TCM. The manual mode and "DS" mode are inhibited, and the transaxle is put in "D".

Transmission Range Switch If an unexpected signal is sent from the transmission range switch to the TCM, the transaxle is put in "D".

CVT Fluid Temperature Sensor

If an unexpected signal is sent from the CVT fluid temperature sensor to the TCM, the gear ratio in use before receiving the unexpected signal is maintained or the gear ratio is controlled to keep engine speed under 5,000 rpm.

Secondary Pressure Sensor

  •  If an unexpected signal is sent from the secondary pressure sensor to the TCM, the secondary pressure feedback control is stopped and the offset value obtained before the non-standard condition occurs is used to control line pressure.

  •  If secondary pressure sensor error signal is inputted to the TCM, secondary pressure feedback control stops, but line pressure is controlled normally.

Line Pressure Solenoid Valve

If an unexpected signal is sent from the solenoid valve to the TCM, the line pressure solenoid valve is turned OFF to achieve the maximum fluid pressure.

Secondary Pressure Solenoid Valve

If an unexpected signal is sent from the solenoid valve to the TCM, the secondary pressure solenoid valve is turned OFF to achieve the maximum fluid pressure.

Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Valve

If an unexpected signal is sent from the solenoid valve to the TCM, the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is turned OFF to cancel the lock-up.

Step Motor

If an unexpected signal is sent from the step motor to the TCM, the step motor coil phases "A" through "D" are all turned OFF to hold the gear ratio used just before the non-standard condition occurred.

Lock-up Select Solenoid Valve

If an unexpected signal is sent from the solenoid valve to the TCM, the lock-up select solenoid valve is turned OFF to cancel the lock-up.

TCM Power Supply (Memory Back-up)

Transaxle assembly is protected by limiting the engine torque when the memory back-up power supply (for controlling) from the battery is not supplied to the TCM. Normal status is restored when turning the ignition switch OFF to ON after the normal power supply.

DTC Inspection Priority Chart

If some DTCs are displayed at the same time, perform inspections one by one based on the following priority chart.

NOTE: If DTC "U0100/U1000/U1010/P1709" is indicated with other DTCs, start from a diagnosis for DTC "U0100/U1000/U1010/P1709". Refer to TM-42 (U0100), TM-43 (U1000), TM-44 (U1010), TM-99 (P1709).

DTC Index

NOTE: If DTC "U0100/U1000/U1010/P1709" is indicated with other DTCs, start from a diagnosis for DTC "U0100/U1000/U1010/P1709". Refer to TM-42 (U0100), TM-43 (U1000), TM-44 (U1010), TM-99 (P1709).
