Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Torque Converter Clutch Actuator Stuck On (P07407E)

DESCRIPTION

The ECM uses signals from the throttle position sensor, mass air flow meter, transmission revolution sensor (NT), transmission revolution sensor (NC) and crankshaft position sensor to help determine the engagement timing of the lock-up clutch. The ECM monitors the engagement of the clutch using the transmission revolution sensor (NT), transmission revolution sensor (NC) and crankshaft position sensor.

Then the ECM compares the engagement condition of the lock-up clutch with the lock-up schedule in the ECM memory to detect solenoid (SL) valve, transmission valve body assembly and torque converter assembly mechanical problems.

Torque Converter Clutch Actuator Stuck On

All of the following conditions are met (2-trip detection logic):

  • Engine coolant temperature is 40°C (104°F) or higher.
  • ATF temperature is -10°C (14°F) or higher.
  • The vehicle is being driven with the shift lever in D.
  • No malfunctions are detected in the solenoid (SL1, SL2, SL3, SL4, SL5, SL6, SL, SLU and SLT) valves, transmission revolution sensors (NT and NC), coolant temperature sensor, oil temperature sensor, knock sensor, crankshaft position sensor circuits, electronic throttle or CAN communication system.
  • When the ECM commands the solenoid (SL) valve OFF, the difference between the turbine speed (NT) and engine speed (NE) is 70 rpm or more for 3.5 seconds or more.
  • Solenoid (SL) valve remains closed
  • Transmission wire
  • Transmission valve body assembly is blocked
  • Torque converter assembly
  • Automatic transaxle assembly (clutch, brake, gear etc.)
  • Line pressure is too low

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

Torque converter lock-up is controlled by the ECM based on the transmission revolution sensor (NT), transmission revolution sensor (NC), engine speed, engine load, engine temperature, vehicle speed, automatic transaxle fluid temperature, and gear selection. The ECM determines the lock-up status of the torque converter by comparing the engine speed (NE) to the input turbine speed (NT). The ECM calculates the actual transmission gear by comparing the input turbine speed (NT) to the output shaft speed (NC). When certain conditions are met, the ECM requests "lock-up" by cutting control voltage to the solenoid (SL) valve. When the solenoid (SL) valve is turned off, pressure is applied to the lock-up relay valve and the torque converter is locked.

If the ECM detects no lock-up after lock-up has been requested or if it detects lock-up when it is not requested, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the solenoid (SL) valve or lock-up system performance. The ECM will illuminate the MIL and store the DTC.

HINT:

Example:

When any of the following is met, the system judges it as a malfunction.

  • There is a difference in rotation speed between the input side (engine speed) and output side (input turbine speed) of the torque converter when the ECM commands lock-up.

    (Engine speed is at least 70 rpm more than the input turbine speed.)

  • There is no difference in rotation speed between the input side (engine speed) and output side (input turbine speed) of the torque converter when the ECM commands lock-up off.

    (The difference between engine speed and input turbine speed is less than 35 rpm.)

ACTIVE TEST

HINT:

Using the Techstream to perform Active Tests allows relays, VSVs, actuators and other items to be operated without removing any parts. This non-intrusive functional inspection can be very useful because intermittent operation may be discovered before parts or wiring is disturbed. Performing Active Tests early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic time. Data List information can be displayed while performing Active Tests.

(a) Warm up the engine.

(b) Turn the engine switch off.

(c) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(d) Turn the engine switch on (IG).

(e) Turn the Techstream on.

(f) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Active Test.

(g) According to the display on the Techstream, perform the Active Test.

HINT:

This test can be conducted when the vehicle speed is 60 km/h (36 mph) or more.

(h) Lightly depress the accelerator pedal and check that the engine speed does not change abruptly.

HINT:

  • When changing the accelerator pedal opening angle while driving, if the engine speed does not change, lock-up is on.
  • Slowly release the accelerator pedal in order to decelerate, but do not fully release the pedal. (Fully releasing the pedal will close the throttle valve and lock-up may be prohibited.)

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P07407E)

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the engine switch on (IG).

(c) Turn the Techstream on.

(d) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Trouble Codes.

Powertrain > Transmission > Trouble Codes

(e) Read the DTCs using the Techstream.
