Toyota Corolla Cross: Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Range/Performance (P071000)

Toyota Corolla Cross (2022-2024) Service Manual / Drivetrain / K120 (cvt) / Continuously Variable Transaxle System / Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Range/Performance (P071000)

DESCRIPTION

The CVT fluid temperature sensor converts the fluid temperature into a resistance value which is detected by the TCM.

The sensor resistance changes with the CVT fluid temperature. As the temperature rises, the sensor resistance decreases. The TCM applies voltage to the temperature sensor through TCM terminal THO1 and calculates the fluid temperature based on the voltage signal.

HINT:

The CVT fluid temperature is likely to increase under conditions such as towing, climbing hills and in traffic.

DTC No.

Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor "A" Circuit Range/Performance

Either of the following conditions is met (2-trip detection logic):

  • The intake air and engine coolant temperatures were more than -10°C (14°F) at engine start, and the CVT fluid temperature is less than 20°C (68°F) for 3 seconds when the vehicle has been driven for over 18 minutes and 7 km (4 miles).
  • The engine coolant temperature was less than 35°C (95°F) at engine start, and the CVT fluid temperature is 100°C (212°F) or more for 10 seconds.
  • CVT fluid level
  • Transmission wire (CVT fluid temperature sensor)

SAE Code:

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The CVT fluid temperature sensor converts the CVT fluid temperature to an electrical resistance value. Based on the resistance, the TCM determines the CVT fluid temperature and detects an open or short circuit in the CVT fluid temperature circuit.

After driving the vehicle for a certain amount of time, the CVT fluid temperature should increase. If the CVT fluid temperature remains below 20°C (68°F), the TCM interprets this as a malfunction, stores a DTC and illuminates the MIL.

When the engine coolant temperature reaches 35°C (95°F) after a cold engine start, if the CVT fluid temperature is 100°C (212°F) or more, the TCM interprets this as a malfunction, illuminates the MIL, and stores this DTC.
