Circuit Description

The 1-2 shift solenoid (SS) valve controls the fluid flow acting on the 1-2 and 3-4 shift valves. The 1-2 SS valve is a normally-open exhaust valve that is used with the 2-3 SS valve in order to allow four different shifting combinations. The solenoid attaches to the control valve body within the transmission. The 1-2 SS valve receives ignition voltage through the power feed circuit. The powertrain control module (PCM) controls the solenoid by providing the ground path on the control circuit.

When the PCM detects a continuous open, short to ground or short to power in the 1-2 SS valve circuit , then DTC P0753 sets. DTC P0753 is a type B DTC.

Conditions for Running the DTC
Conditions for Setting the DTC

DTC P0753 sets if one of the following conditions occurs for 5 seconds:

Condition 1

The PCM commands the solenoid ON and the voltage feedback remains high (B+).

Condition 2

The PCM commands the solenoid OFF and the voltage feedback remains low (0 volts).

Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC
Diagnostic Aids

Refer to the Shift Solenoid Valve State and Gear Ratio table.

Test Description

The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.

  1. This step tests the function of the 1-2 SS valve and the automatic transmission (AT) wiring harness assembly.

  2. This step tests for power to the 1-2 SS valve from the ignition through the fuse.

  3. This step tests the ability of the PCM and the wiring to control the ground circuit.

  4. This step measures the resistance of the AT wiring harness assembly and the 1-2 SS valve.

  1. Install a Scan Tool .
  2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.

    Important

    Before clearing the DTC, use the Scan Tool in order to record the Freeze Frame and Failure Records. Using the Clear Info function erases the Freeze Frame and Failure Records from the PCM.

  3. Record the DTC Freeze Frame and Failure Records.
  4. Clear the DTC.
