Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Pressure Control Solenoid "L" Actuator Stuck Off (P08BA7F)

DESCRIPTION

Based on signals from the transmission revolution sensors (NT and NC), the actual gear is detected.

The ECM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical malfunctions of the solenoid valves, transmission valve body assembly and automatic transaxle assembly (clutch, brake, gear, etc.).

Actual gear when solenoid (SL6) valve malfunction occurs (without fail-safe control):

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM commands gear shifts by turning the solenoid valves on and off. According to the input shaft revolution (speed) and output shaft revolution (speed), the ECM detects the actual gear (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th gear). When the gear commanded by the ECM and the actual gear are not the same, the ECM illuminates the MIL and stores a DTC.
