A/T Park Pin Switch Test/Replacement

1.Remove the ash tray, front console box, heater control panel, driver's dashboard lower cover, and dashboard gauge assembly cover.

2.Disconnect the O/D switch/shift lock solenoid/park pin switch connector.

NOTE: The illustration shows LHD model; RHD is symmetrical.

 

3.Check for continuity between the No. 1 and No. 2 terminals of the O/D switch/shift lock solenoid/park pin switch connector while the shift lever is in [P] position, and when shift lever out of [P]. If the park pin switch is OK, connect the connector and install the removed parts.
If the park pin switch is faulty, go to 4 for replacement.

4.Shift the shift lever to [R] position.

5.Slide the lock tab (A) down on the shift cable end holder (B).

 

6.Remove the shift cable lock (C) with holding at the middle (D) of it using needle-nose pliers (E) from the shift cable end and shift cabel end holder.

NOTE: Do not pry the shift cable lock with a screwdriver, it may damage the shift cable end holder.

7.Separate the shift cable end from the shift cable end holder.

8.Rotate the socket holder (A) on the shift cable (B) a quarter turn; the tab (C) on the socket holder will be in the opening (D) of the socket holder bracket (E). Then slide the holder to remove the shift cable from the socket holder bracket.

NOTE: Do not remove the shift cable by twisting the shift cable guide (F) and damper (G).

10.Remove the harness from the harness clamp on the shift lever bracket base, and remove the harness band from the harness.

11.Pry the lock tabs on the back of the O/D switch/shift lock solenoid/park pin switch connector (A), and remove the back cover (B).

 

12.Remove the terminal (C) from the connetor by pushing the lock tab (D) up in the connector using a thin blade screwdriver (E). Remove all six terminals.

13.Remove the shift lever cover.

14.Remove the control checker (A) from the shift lever, and remove the park pin switch from the control checker.

 

15.Install the new park pin switch (B) by aligning its tab (C) with the positioning hole (D) on the control checker. Apply non-hardening thread lock sealant to the screw (E), then secure the park pin switch with the screw.

16.Install the control checker on the shift lever.

17.Route the harnesses, and clamp them as shown.

 

18.Install the O/D switch harness terminals (A) in the No. 5 and No. 6 cavities. Both of O/D switch harness terminals can be installed in No. 5 and No. 6 cavities.

 

19.Install the park pin switch harness terminals (B) in the No. 1 and No. 2 cavities. Both of park pin switch harness terminals can be installed in No. 1 and No. 2 cavities.

20.Install BLU harness terminal (C) of the shift lock solenoid in the No. 3 cavity, and RED harness terminal (D) in the No. 4 cavity. Make sure that the all six terminals lock securely, then install the back cover (E) locked securely in place.

21.Align the marks (A) on the harnesses, and tie the harness band (B) over the marks. Clamp the O/D switch harness (C) at 15 mm (0.6 in.) (D) from the harness band.

 

22.Install the shift lever cover.

23.Install the shift lever assembly.

NOTE: The illustration shows LHD model; RHD is symmetrical.

 

24.Turn the ignition switch ON (II), and verify that the [R] position indicator comes on.

25.If necessary, push the shift cable until it stops, then release it. Pull the shift cable back one step so that the shift cable is in [R]. Do not hold the shift cable guide (A) to adjust the shift cable (B).

 

26.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

27.Insert a 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) pin (A) into the positioning holes (B) on the shift lever bracket base through the positioning hole (C) on the shift lever. The shift lever is secured in [R] position.

 

28.Rotate the socket holder (A) on the shift cable (B) to face the tab (C) on the holder opposite to the opening (D) in the socket holder bracket (E). Align the holder with the opening in the bracket, then slide the holder into the bracket. Rotate the holder a quarter turn to secure the shift cable. Do not install the shift cable by twisting the shift cable guide (F) and damper (G).

29.Install the shift cable end (A) in the shift cable end holder (B). Keep the shift cable end and end holder free of grease.

 

30.Install the new shift cable lock (A) to secure the shift cable end and shift cable end holder, then push the lock tab (B) up until it stops to lock the joint.

 

31.Remove the 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) pin that was installed to hold the shift lever.

32.Connect the O/D switch/shift lock solenoid/park pin switch connector.

33.Move the shift lever to each gear, and verify that the A/T gear position indicator follows the transmission range switch.

34.Check that the park pin switch operates.

35.Install the dashboard gauge assembly cover, driver's dashboard lower cover, heater control panel, front console box, and ash tray.
