Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual / Drivetrain / U881f (automatic Transmission / Transaxle) / Automatic Transaxle System / Input/Turbine Speed Sensor "A" Circuit Short to Battery (P071512,P071514,P071531)

DESCRIPTION

The transmission revolution sensor (NT) detects the input shaft rotation speed and sends it to the ECM.

Based on the transmission revolution sensor (NT) signal and the transmission revolution sensor (NC3 and NC) signals, the ECM controls engine torque and shift timing. Based on the input shaft rotation speed and the engine speed signal, lock-up control is performed.

DTC No.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The NT terminal of the ECM detects a pulse signal from the transmission revolution sensor (NT) (input RPM). The ECM calculates gear shifts by comparing input signals of the transmission revolution sensor (NT) with the transmission revolution sensor (NC3 and NC).

While the vehicle is being driven in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th gear with the shift lever in D, if the input shaft revolution (speed) is less than 300 rpm*1 when the vehicle speed is 23 km/h (14 mph) or more, the ECM interprets this as a malfunction, illuminates the MIL and stores a DTC.

*: Pulse is not output or is irregularly output.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

CAUTION:

When performing the confirmation driving pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

HINT:

  • After repairs have been completed, clear the DTCs and then check that the vehicle has returned to normal by performing the following All Readiness check procedure.
  • When clearing the permanent DTCs, refer to the Clear Permanent DTC procedure.

    Click here

  1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the Techstream on.
  3. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).
  4. Turn the engine switch off and wait for 2 minutes or more.
  5. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the Techstream on.
  6. Start the engine.
  7. Perform the D Position Shift Test inspection in Road Test. [*1]

    HINT:

    [*1] : Normal judgment procedure.

    The normal judgment procedure is used to complete DTC judgment and also used when clearing permanent DTCs.

  8. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Utility / All Readiness.
  9. Input the DTC: P071512, P071514 or P071531.
  10. Check the DTC judgment result.

DATA LIST

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.

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.

(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 / Data List / NT Sensor Speed.

(g) Read the Data List according to the display on the Techstream.

HINT:

  • NT Sensor Speed is always 0 while driving: Open or short in the sensor or circuit.
  • NT Sensor Speed is always more than 0 and less than 300 rpm while driving the vehicle at 50 km/h (31 mph) or more: Sensor malfunction, improper installation, or intermittent connection malfunction in the circuit.
