Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual: Shift Solenoid "A" Circuit Short to Ground (P075011)

DESCRIPTION

Changing gears is performed by the ECM turning the shift solenoid valves SL1, SL2, SL3, SL4, SL5, S1 and S2 on and off.

If an open or short occurs in any of the shift solenoid valve circuits, the ECM controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves to allow the vehicle to be driven. If all of the shift solenoid valves are malfunctioning, only the mechanical fluid pressure circuit will function and some manual operation will be possible. If an open or short occurs in a shift solenoid valve circuit, the ECM cuts power to the malfunctioning shift solenoid valve.

DTC No.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

This DTC indicates a short to ground in the shift solenoid valve S1 circuit. When there is an open or short in any shift solenoid valve circuit, the ECM detects the problem, illuminates the MIL and stores a DTC.

When the shift solenoid valve S1 is on, if its resistance is 8 Ω or less, the ECM determines there is a short to ground in the shift solenoid valve S1 circuit.

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.

  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: P075011.
  10. Check the DTC judgment result.

    Techstream Display

    Description

    NORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System normal

    ABNORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE

    • DTC judgment not completed
    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    N/A

    • Unable to perform DTC judgment
    • Number of DTCs which do not fulfill DTC preconditions has reached ECU memory limit

    HINT:

    • If the judgment result shows NORMAL, the system is normal.
    • If the judgment result shows ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.
    • If the judgment result shows INCOMPLETE or N/A, perform the normal judgment procedure again.
