Fig. 104: ATF Temperature Sensor Operation Diagram

General Description

The ATF temperature sensor is a thermistor type sensor whose resistance changes according to the change in
ATF temperature. The powertrain control module (PCM) sends a 5 V reference voltage to the grounded
sensor through a pull-up resistor. When the ATF temperature is low, the sensor resistance increases and the
PCM detects a high signal voltage. As the ATF temperature rises, the sensor resistance decreases and the
PCM detects a low signal voltage.

If the ATF temperature sensor signal does not change, the PCM detects a malfunction and a DTC is stored.

Driving Pattern

1. Stuck at Low temperature

Start the engine with engine coolant temperature at 95°F (35°C) or less, and warm up the engine until
the engine coolant temperature reaches 158°F (70°C) or more. Then drive the vehicle at a speed of 19
mph (30 km/h) or more with the throttle position at 4.0° or more for at least 5 minutes.

2. Stuck at High temperature

Turn off the engine with the engine coolant temperature at 158°F (70°C) or more. Restart the engine
after the engine coolant temperature drops to 95°F (35°C) or less, and warm up the engine until the
engine coolant temperature reaches 158°F (70°C), and wait for at least 20 seconds.

Drive the vehicle in this manner only if the traffic regulations and ambient conditions allow.

Diagnosis Details

Conditions for illuminating the indicator

When a malfunction is detected, the D indicator blinks, and the DTC and the freeze frame data are stored in
the PCM memory. The MIL does not come on.

Conditions for clearing the DTC

The DTC and the freeze frame data can be cleared by using the scan tool Clear command or by
disconnecting the battery.

When the ATF temperature sensor signal voltage to the PCM is under the specification, indicating that the
temperature is above the specification (a short to ground), a malfunction is detected and a DTC is stored.
