TROUBLESHOOTING ITEM

DESCRIPTION

PAGE
1
Vehicle does not move in D, M ranges, or in R position
Vehicle does not move when accelerator pedal is depressed.
2
Vehicle moves in N position
Vehicle creeps in N position.
Vehicle creeps if brake pedal is not depressed in N position.
3
Vehicle moves in P position, or parking gear does not disengage when P position is disengaged
Vehicle rolls when on a downward slope and tires do not lock in P position.
Tires locked when P position is disengaged, vehicle does not move in D, M ranges, and R position when accelerator pedal is depressed, and engine remains in stalled condition.
4
Excessive creep
Vehicle accelerates in D, M ranges and R position when accelerator pedal is not depressed.
5
No creep at all
Vehicle does not move in D, M ranges, or R position when idling on flat paved road.
6
Low maximum speed and poor acceleration
Vehicle acceleration is poor at start.
Delayed acceleration when accelerator pedal is depressed while driving.
7
No shifting
Single shift range only.
Sometimes shifts correctly.
8
Does not shift to 4GR
Vehicle does not upshift from 3GR to 4GR even though vehicle speed is increased.
Vehicle does not shift to 4GR even though accelerator pedal is released in D range at 60 km/h {37 mph}.
9
Abnormal shifting
Shifts incorrectly (incorrect shift pattern).
10
Frequent shifting
Downshifting occurs suddenly even when accelerator pedal is depressed slightly in D range.
11
Shift point is high or low
Shift point considerably different from automatic shift diagram.
Shift delays when accelerating.
Shift occurs suddenly when accelerating and engine speed does not increase.
12
Torque converter clutch (TCC) non-operation
TCC does not operate when vehicle reaches TCC operation range.
13
No kickdown
Does not downshift when accelerator pedal is fully depressed within kickdown range.
14
Engine flares up or slips when upshifting or downshifting
When accelerator pedal is depressed, engine speed increases normally but vehicle speed increases slowly.
When accelerator pedal is depressed while driving, engine speed increases but vehicle speed does not.
15
Engine flares up or slips when accelerating vehicle
Engine flares up when accelerator pedal is depressed for upshifting.
Engine flares up suddenly when accelerator pedal is depressed for downshifting.
16
Judder upon torque converter clutch (TCC) operation
Vehicle jolts when TCC is engaged.
17
Excessive shift shock from N to D or N to R position/range
Strong shock is felt when shifting from N to D or N to R position/range at idle.
18
Excessive shift shock is given when upshifting and downshifting
Excessive shift shock is felt when depressing accelerator pedal to accelerate at upshifting.
During cruising, excessive shift shock is felt when depressing accelerator pedal at downshifting.
19
Excessive shift shock on torque converter clutch (TCC)
Strong shock is felt when TCC is engaged.
20
Noise occurs at idle when vehicle is stopped in all positions/ranges
Transaxle is noisy in all positions and ranges when vehicle idling.
21
Noise occurs at idle when vehicle is stopped in D, M ranges, or in R position
Transaxle is noisy in driving ranges when vehicle is idling.
22
No engine braking in 1GR position of M range
Engine speed drops to idle but vehicle coasts when accelerator pedal is released when in M range (1GR) at low vehicle speed.
23
Transaxle overheats
Burnt smell emitted from the transaxle.
Smoke is emitted from the transaxle.
24
Engine stalls when shifted to D, M ranges, or in R position
Engine stalls when shifting from N or P position to D, M ranges or R position at idle.
25
Engine stalls when driving at slow speeds or stopping
Engine stalls when brake pedal is depressed while driving at low speed or stopping.
26
Starter does not work
Starter does not work even when in P or N position.
27
Gear position indicator light does not illuminate in M range
Gear position indicator light in instrument cluster does not illuminate in M range with ignition switch at ON.
28
Gear position indicator light illuminates in D range or P, N, R positions
Gear position indicator light in instrument cluster illuminates in D range or P, N, R positions with ignition switch at ON.
29
Does not upshift in M range
Gear position indicator light in instrument cluster illuminates but vehicle does not upshift when selector lever is pushed to "+" side.
30
Does not downshift in M range
Gear position indicator light in instrument cluster illuminates but vehicle does not downshift when selector lever is pushed to "-" side.
