Toyota Tundra Service Manual: Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal (P0717)

DESCRIPTION

This sensor detects the rotation speed of the turbine which indicates the input speed of the transmission. By comparing the input turbine speed signal NT with the output speed sensor signal SP2, the ECM detects the shift timing of the gears and appropriately controls the engine torque and hydraulic pressure according to various conditions, and as a result, the gears shift smoothly.

DTC Code

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0717

All conditions are met for 5 seconds or more (1-trip detection logic):

(a) Gear change is not performed.

(b) Gear position is 4th, 5th or 6th.

(c) Transmission input shaft speed is less than 300 rpm.

(d) Transmission output shaft speed is 1000 rpm or more.

(e) Park/neutral position switch NSW and R input signals are OFF.

(f) Shift solenoid valves and the park/neutral position switch are operating normally.

  • Open or short in speed sensor NT circuit
  • Speed sensor NT
  • ECM
  • Automatic transmission (clutch, brake, gear, etc.)

Reference: Inspect using an oscilloscope.

Check the waveform of the ECM connector.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

This DTC indicates that a pulse is not output from the speed sensor NT (turbine (input) speed sensor) or is output only a little. The NT terminal of the ECM detects the pulse signal from the speed sensor NT (input RPM). The ECM outputs a gear shift signal by comparing the input speed sensor NT signal with the output speed sensor SP2 signal.

While the vehicle is operating in 4th, 5th or 6th gear with the shift lever in D, if the input shaft speed is less than 300 rpm*1 although the output shaft speed is 1000 rpm or more*2, the ECM detects the trouble, illuminates the MIL and stores the DTC.

HINT:

  • *1: A pulse is not output or is irregularly output.
  • *2: The vehicle speed is approximately 50 km/h (30 mph) or more.

1. DATA LIST

HINT:

Using the Techstream to read the Data List allows the values or states of switches, sensors, actuators and other items to be read without removing any parts. This non-intrusive inspection can be very useful because intermittent conditions or signals may be discovered before parts or wiring is disturbed. Reading the Data List information early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic time.

NOTICE:

In the table below, the values listed under "Normal Condition" are reference values. Do not depend solely on these reference values when deciding whether a part is faulty or not.

(a) Warm up the engine.

(b) Turn the ignition switch off.

(c) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(d) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(e) Turn the Techstream on.

(f) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List.

(g) According to the display on the Techstream, read the Data List.

Normal Condition

Diagnostic Note

SPD (NT)

Input shaft speed/

Min.: 0 rpm

Max.: 12750 rpm

  • Lock-up ON (after warming up engine): Input turbine speed (NT) is equal to engine speed
  • Lock-up OFF (idling with shift lever in N): Input turbine speed (NT) is nearly equal to engine speed

Data is displayed in increments of 50 rpm.

HINT:

  • SPD (NT) is always 0 while driving:

    Open or short in the sensor or circuit.

  • SPD (NT) is always more than 0 and less than 300 rpm while driving the vehicle at 50 km/h (30 mph) or more:

    Sensor trouble, improper installation, or intermittent connection trouble of the circuit.

PROCEDURE

1.

INSPECT SPEED SENSOR NT INSTALLATION

(a) Check the speed sensor NT installation.

OK:

The installation bolt is tightened properly and there is no clearance between the sensor and transmission case.
