DTC Troubleshooting: P0847 (26-3)

DTC P0847:  Short in 3rd Clutch Transmission Fluid Pressure Switch Circuit, or 3rd Clutch Transmission Fluid Pressure Switch Stuck ON

NOTE:

1.Clear the DTC with the HDS.

2.Check the 3rd PRES SWITCH signal with the HDS in the A/T data list when not in 3rd gear.

Is the 3rd PRES SWITCH ON?


YES - Go to 3.


NO - Go to 5.


3.Start the engine, and warm it up to normal operating temperature (the radiator fan comes on). Drive the vehicle in 3rd gear in the D position D3 driving mode (turned the D3 switch on) for more than 5 seconds, then turn the D3 switch off, and drive in 4th gear for more than 5 seconds. Slow down to a stop.

Did the result indicate a fail?


YES - Go to 5.


NO - Intermittent failure, the system is OK at this time. Check the BLU/WHT wire for an intermittent short to ground between the 3rd clutch transmission fluid pressure switch and PCM. If the tester indicates NOT COMPLETE, return to 3 and recheck.n


5.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

6.Disconnect the 3rd clutch transmission fluid pressure switch connector.

7.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

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

Is the 3rd PRES SWITCH OFF?
