Toyota RAV4 Service Manual: Transmission fluid temperature sensor "A" circuit

Toyota RAV4. Transmission fluid temperature sensor "a" circuit


Description

The automatic transmission fluid (atf) temperature sensor converts the atf temperature into a resistance value which is input into the ecm.

The ecm applies a voltage to the temperature sensor through ecm terminal tho1.

The sensor resistance changes with the atf temperature.

One terminal of the sensor is grounded so that the sensor resistance and voltage decrease as the temperature becomes higher.

The ecm calculates the atf based on the voltage signal.

Monitor description

Atf temperature sensor converts atf temperature to an electrical resistance value. Based on the resistance, the ecm determines the atf temperature, and the ecm detects an open or short in the atf temperature circuit. If the resistance value of the atf temperature is less than 79 ù*1 or more than 156 kù*2, the ecm interprets this as a fault in the atf sensor or wiring. The ecm will illuminate the mil and store the dtc.

Inspection procedure

Hint:

Using the intelligent tester's data list allows switch, sensor, actuator and other item values to be read without removing any parts. Reading the data list early in troubleshooting is one way to save time.

Notice:

In the table below, the values listed under "normal condition" are reference values. Do not depend solely on these reference values when deciding whether a part is faulty or not.

  1. Warm up the engine.
  2. Turn the ignition switch off.
  3. Connect the intelligent tester to the can vim. Then connect the can vim to the dlc3
  4. Turn the ignition switch on and turn the tester on.
  5. Enter the following menus: diagnosis / enhanced obd ii / data list.
  6. Follow the instructions on the tester and read the data list.

Hint:

Measure the resistance between terminal tho1 (tho) and the body ground.

Hint:

If a circuit related to the atf temperature sensor becomes open, p0713 is set in approximately 0.5 Seconds. It is not necessary to inspect the circuit when p0711 is set

  1. Inspect transmission wire (atf temperature sensor)

  1. Disconnect the b27 wire connector.
  2. Measure the resistance of the transmission wire.

Standard resistance


Hint:

If the resistance is out of the specified range of either of the atf temperatures shown in the table below, the driveability of the vehicle may decrease.
