DTC Troubleshooting: P0983 (60)

DTC P0983:
 Shift Solenoid Valve D (Open)
NOTE:
  1. Clear the DTC with the HDS.
  1. Start the engine in P. With the brake pedal pressed, shift to N, and wait for at least 1 second.
  1. Check that DTC P0983 recurs.
Is DTC P0983 indicated?
YES -
Go to Step 7 .
NO -
Go to Step 4 .
  1. Select Shift Solenoid D in the Miscellaneous Test Menu, and test shift solenoid valve D with the HDS.
Is a clicking sound heard?
YES -
Go to Step 5 .
NO -
Go to Step 7 .
  1. Start the engine in P, and wait for at least 1 second. With the brake pedal pressed, shift to N, and wait for at least 1 second.
  1. Monitor the OBD status for P0983 in the DTCs/Freeze Data in A/T Mode Menu for a pass/fail.
Does the HDS indicate FAILED?
YES -
Go to Step 7 .
NO -
Intermittent failure, the system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose terminals at shift solenoid valve D and the PCM. If the HDS indicates NOT COMPLETED, return to Step 4 and recheck.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
  1. Jump the SCS line with the HDS.
  1. Disconnect PCM connectors B (49P) and C (49P).
  1. Measure the resistance between PCM connector terminals B12 and C44 or C48.
Is there 12−25 Ω?
YES -
Go to Step 15 .
NO -
Go to Step 11 .
  1. Disconnect the shift solenoid harness connector.

  1. Check for continuity between PCM connector terminal B12 and shift solenoid harness connector terminal No. 8.
Is there continuity?
YES -
Go to Step 13 .
NO -
Repair open in the wire between PCM connector terminal B12 and the shift solenoid harness connector, then go to Step 24 .

  1. Check for continuity between shift solenoid harness connector terminal No. 8 and the shift solenoid valve D connector terminal.
Is there continuity?
YES -
NO -
  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).

  1. Measure the voltage between PCM connector terminals C10 and C44 or C48.
Is there battery voltage?
YES -
Go to Step 19 .
NO -
Go to Step 17 .
  1. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).

  1. Check for continuity between PCM connector terminals C44 and body ground, and between C48 and body ground.
Is there continuity?
YES -
Check for a blown No. 20 (15A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box. If the fuse is OK, repair open or short in the wire between PCM connector terminal C10 and the under-dash fuse/relay box, then go to Step 24 .
NO -
Repair open in the wires between PCM connector terminals C44, C48 and ground (G101), or repair poor ground (G101), then go to Step 24 .
  1. Connect PCM connectors.
  1. Start the engine in P, and wait for at least 1 second. With the brake pedal pressed, shift to N, and wait for at least 1 second.
  1. Check for Temporary DTCs or DTCs with the HDS.
Is DTC P0983 indicated?
YES -
If the PCM was updated, substitute a known-good PCM, then recheck. If the PCM was substituted, go to Step 1 .
NO -
Go to Step 23 .
  1. Monitor the OBD status for P0983 in the DTCs/Freeze Data in A/T Mode Menu for a pass/fail.
Does the HDS indicate PASSED?
YES -
If the PCM was updated, troubleshooting is complete. If the PCM was substituted, replace the original PCM. If any other DTCs were indicated on Step 22 , go to the indicated DTC's troubleshooting.■
NO -
Check for poor connections and loose terminals at shift solenoid valve D and the PCM. If the PCM was updated, substitute a known-good PCM, then recheck. If the PCM was substituted, go to Step 1 . If the HDS indicates NOT COMPLETED, return to Step 21 and recheck.
  1. Reconnect all connectors.
  1. Clear the DTC with the HDS.
  1. Start the engine in P, and wait for at least 1 second. With the brake pedal pressed, shift to N, and wait for at least 1 second.
  1. Check for Temporary DTCs or DTCs with the HDS.
Is DTC P0983 indicated?
YES -
Check for poor connections and loose terminals at shift solenoid valve D and the PCM, then go to Step 1 .
NO -
Go to Step 28 .
  1. Monitor the OBD status for P0983 in the DTCs/Freeze Data in A/T Mode Menu for a pass/fail.
Does the HDS indicate PASSED?
YES -
Troubleshooting is complete. If any other DTCs were indicated on Step 27 , go to the indicated DTC's troubleshooting.■
NO -
Check for poor connections and loose terminals at shift solenoid valve D and the PCM, then go to Step 1 . If the HDS indicates NOT COMPLETED, return to Step 26 and recheck.
