Toyota Corolla Repair Manual: System description

The ecm uses the signals from the throttle position sensor, air–flow meter and crankshaft position sensor to monitor the engagement condition of the lock–up clutch.

Then the ecm compares the engagement condition of the lock–up clutch with the lock–up schedule in the ecm memory to detect mechanical trouble of the shift solenoid valve sl, valve body and torque converter clutch or automatic transaxle (clutch, brake or gear etc.).

Monitor description

Monitor description

Based on the signals from the throttle position sensor, the airflow meter and the crankshaft position sensor, the ecm sends a signal to the shift solenoid valve sl to regulate the hydraulic pressure and provide smoother gearshifts. The shift–solenoid valve sl responds to commands from the ecm. The valve controls the lock–up relay valve to perform torque–converter lock–up and flexible lock–up functions.

The ecm compares the engine rpm (ne) signal and the input speed calculated by output speed sensor (output speed) and gear ratio to detect torque converter lock–up. The ecm then compares the lock–up status against the lock–up schedule in the ecm memory. If the ecm does not detect lock–up at the appropriate time, it will conclude that there is a malfunction of shift solenoid sl. The ecm will illuminate the mil.

Circuit description
The vapor pressure sensor and the vsv for the canister closed valve (ccv) are used to detect abnormalities in the evaporative emission control system. The ecm decides whether there is an abnormality in the evaporative emission control system based on the vapor pressure sensor signal. Dtc p0 ...

Automatic transaxle assy (atm)
Precaution  The automatic transaxle is composed of highly precision–finished parts, necessitating careful inspection before reassembly because even a small nick could cause fluid leakage or affect the performance. The instructions here are organized so that you work on only one ...

Circuit description
In the diagram below, when the engine is cranked, current flows from terminal st2 of the ignition switch to the starter relay coil and also current flows to terminal sta of the ecm (sta signal). When the sta signal and ne signal are input to the ecm, tr is turned on, current flows to the c ...
