Transmission Range Switch Replacement

1.Remove the air cleaner housing and intake air duct.

2.Shift to [N] position.

3.Disconnect the transmission range switch connector.


4.Remove the old transmission range switch, and replace the switch with a new one.

5.Make sure that the control lever (A) is in [N] position. If necessary, move the control lever to [N] position. Do not squeeze the control shaft tips (B) together when shift to [N] position. If the tips are squeezed together will cause a faulty signal or position due to the play between the control shaft and the switch.


6.Align the cutout (A) on the rotary-frame with the neutral positioning cutouts (B) on the new transmission range switch (C), then put a 2.0 mm (0.08 in.) feeler gauge blade (D) in the cutouts to hold it in the [N] position. Be sure to use a 2.0 mm (0.08 in.) blade or equivalent to hold the switch in [N] position.


7.Insert the transmission range switch (A) gently on the control shaft (B) with holding the [N] position with the 2.0 mm (0.08 in.) blade (C).


8.Tighten the bolts on the transmission range switch while you continue to hold the [N] position. Do not move the transmission range switch when tightening the bolts.


9.Remove the feeler gauge (A), then install the rotary frame cover (B).

10.Connect the transmission range switch connector.

11.Turn the ignition switch ON (II). Move the shift lever through all gear positions, and check the transmission range switch synchronization with the A/T gear position indicator.


12.Check that the engine can start in [P] and [N] positions, and cannot start in any other shift lever position.

13.Check that the back-up lights come on when the shift lever is in [R] position.

14.Allow the wheels to rotate freely, then start the engine, and check the shift lever operation.

15.Install the air cleaner housing and intake air duct.
