2006 Toyota Solara Repair Question
Toyota Solara Shift solenoid Problem
erasing does absolutely nothing as the issue is still there. you erased needed data for the tech to see when the issue happened.
DTC P0748 Pressure Control Solenoid A Electrical (Shift Solenoid Valve SL1)
Shifting from 1st to 5th is performed in combination with ON and OFF operation of the shift solenoid valves SL1, SL2, SL3, S4 and SR which are controlled by the ECM. If an open or short circuit occurs in either of the shift solenoid valves, the ECM controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves to allow the vehicle to be operated smoothly (Fail safe function).
The ECM commands gear shifts by turning the shift solenoid valves ON/OFF. When there is an open or short circuit in any shift solenoid valve circuit, the ECM detects the problem and illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC. And the ECM performs the fail-safe function and turns the other normal shift solenoid valves ON/OFF (In case of an open or short circuit, the ECM stops sending current to the circuit.)
DTC P0796 Pressure Control Solenoid C Performance (Shift Solenoid Valve SL1)
The ECM uses signals from the vehicle speed sensor to detect the actual gear position (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th gear).
Then the ECM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical troubles of the shift solenoid valves and valve body.
The ECM commands gear shifts by turning the shift solenoid valves ON/OFF. According to the input shaft revolution, intermediate (counter) shaft revolution and output shaft revolution, the ECM detects the actual gear position (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th gear position). When the gear position commanded by the ECM and the actual gear position are not the same, the ECM illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC.
