KE, KG, and KS Models


NOTE:

1.Clear the DTC with the HDS.

2.Start the engine, and warm it up to normal operating temperature (the radiator fan comes on). Drive the vehicle in the 3rd gear in the D position with D3 driving mode (turned the D3 switch on), and verify that the SHIFT MAP NUMBER indicates 3rd with the HDS in the A/T data list.

3.Check the 3rd PRES SWITCH signal with the HDS in the A/T data list.

Is the 3rd PRES SWITCH ON?


YES - Go to 4.

NO - Go to 10.

10.Measure the voltage between PCM connector terminal C10 and body ground.

 

Is there about 5 V?


YES - Repair open in the wire between PCM connector terminal C10 and the 3rd clutch transmission fluid pressure switch, then go to 11.


NO - Check for loose or poor connections at PCM connector terminal C10. If the connection is OK, update the PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known-good PCM, then recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away with a known-good PCM, replace the original  PCM.n
