DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

CAUTION: Always drive vehicle at a safe speed.

NOTE: If “DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE” has been previously performed, always turn ignition switch OFF.

Then wait at least 10 seconds before performing the next test.

1.CHECK DTC DETECTION

1. Turn ignition switch ON.

2. Select “DATA MONITOR”.

3. Start engine and maintain the following conditions for at least 30 consecutive seconds.

Follow the procedure “With CONSULT-III”.

Is “P0776 PRS CNT SOL/B FCTN” detected? YES >> Go to TM-152, "Diagnosis Procedure".

NO >> Check intermittent incident. Refer to GI-42, "Intermittent Incident".

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK LINE PRESSURE

Perform line pressure test. Refer to TM-247, "Inspection and Judgment".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 2.

NO >> Repair or replace damaged parts. Refer to TM-247, "Inspection and Judgment".

2.CHECK PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE B (SECONDARY PRESSURE SOLENOID VALVE)

1. Turn ignition switch OFF.

2. Disconnect CVT unit harness connector.

3. Check pressure control solenoid valve B (secondary pressure solenoid valve). Refer to TM-153, "Component Inspection [Pressure Control Solenoid Valve B (Secondary Pressure Solenoid Valve)]".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> Replace transaxle assembly. Refer to TM-447, "Exploded View".

3.CHECK PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE A (LINE PRESSURE SOLENOID VALVE)

Check pressure control solenoid valve A (line pressure solenoid valve). Refer to TM-153, "Component Inspection [Pressure Control Solenoid Valve A (Line Pressure Solenoid Valve)]".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 4.

NO >> Replace transaxle assembly. Refer to TM-259, "Exploded View".

4.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID PRESSURE SENSOR A (SECONDARY PRESSURE SENSOR) SYSTEM

Check transmission fluid pressure sensor A (secondary pressure sensor) system. Refer to TM-160, "DTC Logic".

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 5.

NO >> Repair or replace damaged parts.

5.DETECT MALFUNCTIONING ITEMS

Check TCM connector pin terminals for damage or loose connection with harness connector.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Replace TCM. Refer to TM-254, "Exploded View".

NO >> Repair or replace damaged parts.

Component Inspection [Pressure Control Solenoid Valve A (Line Pressure Solenoid Valve)

1.CHECK PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE A (LINE PRESSURE SOLENOID VALVE)

Check resistance between CVT unit terminal 2 and ground.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> INSPECTION END

NO >> Replace transaxle assembly. Refer to TM-259, "Exploded View".

Component Inspection [Pressure Control Solenoid Valve B (Secondary Pressure Solenoid Valve)

1.CHECK PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE B (SECONDARY PRESSURE SOLENOID VALVE)

Check resistance between CVT unit terminal 3 and ground.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> INSPECTION END

NO >> Replace transaxle assembly. Refer to TM-259, "Exploded View".
