Toyota 4Runner: Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Performance (P0711)

Toyota 4Runner Service Manual / Drivetrain / A750e Automatic Transmission / Transaxle / Automatic Transmission System / Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Performance (P0711)

DESCRIPTION

The ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) 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 temperature based on the voltage signal.

No. 1 ATF temperature sensor (transmission wire)

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

This DTC indicates that there is a problem with the output from the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) temperature sensor and that the sensor itself is defective. 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 or a fault in the ATF temperature sensor.

After driving the vehicle for a certain period, the ATF temperature should increase. If the ATF temperature is below 20°C (68°F) after running the vehicle for a certain period, the ECM interprets this as a fault, turns on the MIL and stores the DTC.

When the ATF temperature is 95°C (203°F) or higher and the engine coolant temperature reaches 60°C (140°F) after a cold start, the ECM also determines this as a fault, turns on the MIL and stores the DTC.

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.

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.

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.

PROCEDURE
