Toyota Corolla Repair Manual: System description

The ecm uses the signals from the throttle position sensor, airflow meter and crankshaft position sensor to monitor the engagement condition of the lockup clutch.

Then the ecm compares the engagement condition of the lockup clutch with the lockup 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 shiftsolenoid valve sl responds to commands from the ecm. The valve controls the lockup relay valve to perform torqueconverter lockup and flexible lockup 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 lockup. The ecm then compares the lockup status against the lockup schedule in the ecm memory. If the ecm does not detect lockup at the appropriate time, it will conclude that there is a malfunction of shift solenoid sl. The ecm will illuminate the mil.
