DTC P0973: SHORT IN SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE A CIRCUIT

1. Clear the DTC with the HDS.

2. Start the engine, and shift to the D position.

3. Check that DTC P0973 recurs.

Is DTC P0973 indicated?

YES: Go to step 7 .

NO: Go to step 4.

4. Select SHIFT SOL TEST in MISC. TEST MENU, then carry out A/T SHIFT SOL A test in SHIFT SOL

TEST MENU with the HDS.

5. Start the engine, and shift to the D position.

6. Check the OBD STATUS in DTCs MENU for a pass/fail test of code P0973.

Did the result indicate a fail?

YES: Go to step 7.

NO: Intermittent failure, the system is OK at this time. Check the BLU/BLK wire for an
intermittent short to ground between shift solenoid valve A and PCM. If the tester indicates
NOT COMPLETE, return to step 4 and recheck.

7. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

8. Jump the SCS line with the HDS.

9. Disconnect PCM connectors A (31P) and C (22P).

10. Measure the resistance between PCM connector terminals C6 and A8 or A9.

Is there less than 12 ohm?

YES: Go to step 11.

NO: Update the PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known-good
PCM (see PCM UPDATING & SUBSTITUTION FOR TESTING ), then recheck. If the
symptom/indication goes away with a known-good PCM, replace the original PCM.

NOTE:

Record all freeze data and review General Troubleshooting Information
(see GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION ) before you
troubleshoot.

11. Disconnect the shift solenoid harness connector at the transmission housing.

12. Check for continuity between PCM connector terminals C6 and A8 or A9.

Is there continuity?

YES: Repair short to ground in the wire between PCM connector terminal C6 and the shift
solenoid harness connector, then go to step 13.

NO: Check shift solenoid valve A, and check for a short in the shift solenoid harness in the
transmission (see SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE TEST ). Replace shift solenoid valve A
and/or shift solenoid harness, then go to step 13.

13. Clear the DTC with the HDS.

14. Start the engine, and shift to the D position.

15. Check the OBD STATUS in DTCs MENU for a pass/fail test of code P0973.

Did the result indicate a pass?

YES: The problem has been corrected.

NO: Return to step 1 and recheck.

DTC P0974: OPEN IN SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE A CIRCUIT

1. Clear the DTC with the HDS.

2. Start the engine in the P position.

NOTE:

3. Check that DTC P0974 recurs.

Is DTC P0974 indicated?

YES: Go to step 7 .

NO: Go to step 4.

4. Select SHIFT SOL TEST in MISC. TEST MENU, then carry out A/T SHIFT SOL A test in SHIFT SOL

TEST MENU with the HDS.

5. Start the engine in the P position.

6. Check the OBD STATUS in DTCs MENU for a pass/fail test of code P0974.

Did the result indicate a fail?

YES: Go to step 7.

NO: Intermittent failure, the system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose
terminals at the shift solenoid valve A and PCM. If the tester indicates NOT COMPLETE,
return to step 4 and recheck.

7. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

8. Jump the SCS line with the HDS.

9. Disconnect PCM connectors A (31P) and C (22P).

10. Measure the resistance between PCM connector terminals C6 and A8 or A9.

Is there 12-25 ohm?

YES: Check for loose or poor connections at PCM connector terminal C6. If the connection
is OK, update the PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known-good
PCM (see PCM UPDATING & SUBSTITUTION FOR TESTING ), then recheck. If the
symptom/indication goes away with a known-good PCM, replace the original PCM.

NO: Go to step 11.
