Toyota 4Runner: Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Low Input (P0712,P0713)

Toyota 4Runner Service Manual / Drivetrain / A750e Automatic Transmission / Transaxle / Automatic Transmission System / Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Low Input (P0712,P0713)

DESCRIPTION

Refer to DTC P0711 (See page
).


DTC Code

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0712

ATF temperature sensor resistance is below 79 Ω for 0.5 sec. or more (1-trip detection logic).

  • Short in No. 1 ATF temperature sensor circuit
  • No. 1 ATF temperature sensor (transmission wire)
  • ECM

P0713

ATF temperature sensor resistance is higher than 156 kΩ for 0.5 sec. or more and either condition is met (1-trip detection logic):

(A) 550 sec. or more have elapsed after the engine start when the engine coolant temperature or intake air temperature is -29.375°C (-20.875°F) or less.

(B) 10 sec. or more have elapsed after the engine start when the engine coolant temperature and intake air temperature are higher than -29.375°C (-20.875°F).

  • Open in No. 1 ATF temperature sensor circuit
  • No. 1 ATF temperature sensor (transmission wire)
  • ECM

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ATF temperature sensor converts the ATF temperature to an electrical resistance value. Based on the resistance, the ECM determines the ATF temperature and detects an open or short in the ATF temperature sensor circuit. If the resistance value of the ATF temperature sensor is below 79 Ω*1 or higher than 156 kΩ*2, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the ATF temperature sensor or wiring. The ECM will illuminate the MIL and store the DTC.

HINT:

  • *1: 150°C (302°F) or higher is indicated regardless of the actual ATF temperature.
  • *2: -40°C (-40°F) is indicated regardless of the actual ATF temperature.
  • The ATF temperature can be checked on the Techstream display.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

Perform the universal trip to clear permanent DTCs (See page ).


1. DATA LIST

HINT:

Using the Techstream to read the Data List allows the values or states of switches, sensors, actuators and other items to be read without removing any parts. This non-intrusive inspection can be very useful because intermittent conditions or signals may be discovered before parts or wiring is disturbed. Reading the Data List information early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic 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.

(a) Warm up the engine.

(b) Turn the ignition switch off.

(c) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(d) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(e) Turn the Techstream on.

(f) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List.

(g) According to the display on the Techstream, read the Data List.

Normal Condition

Diagnostic Note

A/T Oil Temperature 1

No. 1 ATF temperature sensor value/

Min.: -40°C (-40°F)

Max.: 215°C (419°F)

  • After stall test: Approximately 80°C (176°F)
  • With engine cold: Equal to ambient temperature

If the value is -40°C (-40°F) or 215°C (419°F), the No. 1 ATF temperature sensor circuit is open or shorted.

HINT:

When DTC P0712 is output and the Techstream output is 150°C (302°F) or higher, there is a short circuit.

When DTC P0713 is output and the Techstream output is -40°C (-40°F), there is an open circuit.

Check the temperature displayed on the Techstream in order to check if a malfunction exists.

Short circuit

If a circuit related to the ATF temperature sensor becomes open, P0713 is immediately stored (in 0.5 seconds). When P0713 is stored, P0711 cannot be stored. It is not necessary to inspect the circuit when P0711 is stored.
