You need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.
Most auto parts stores can scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts.
Once you have the codes you can research them online.

SOURCE: Engine Check Light on

Take it to a shop and have it scanned and see what the problem is. Then you will get an estimate for the repair or decide to try it yourself.

This is a known condition. And, is under warranty.

Take your vehicle to a Toyota dealership. Ask them to replace your ECU per TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) TC015-07. The new ECU has redesigned logic that rectifys your condition.

you have to go to a garage equiped with a scanner or code reader to retrieve the code that was stored in the car computer, and then resume to repair the problem accordingly. your car now is running in safe mode (not the best scenario)

Toyota hilux 2011 model trouble code p2716


here is some info. I hope it helps.

This is a code relative to shift solenoid malfunctions in your computer. This is a known problem on your model and Toyota released an updated PCM to correct the problem.
While you can replace the PCM yourself if you are out of warranty, your dealer will need to code your VIN to it in order to get rid of the check engine light.
The warranty coverage is 8 years or 80,000 miles from new.

The details of the bulletin are below:

TRANSMISSION & CLUTCH
TC015-07 Title:
HARSH SHIFT AND M.I.L. "ON"
DTC P2716 Models:
'05 - '07 Corolla & Matrix (1ZZ-FE) September 20, 2007
TSB UPDATE NOTICE:The information contained in this TSB supercedes TSB No. TC014-06.
TSB No. TCO14-06 is now obsolete and should be discarded. Introduction
Some 2005 - 2007 model year Corolla and Matrix vehicles equipped with an automatic transaxle may exhibit a harsh shift condition and a M.l.L. ON" with DTC P2716 stored. Improvements have been made to the Engine Control Module (ECM) (SAE term:
Powertrain Control Module/PCM) to reduce the possibility of this condition occurring

How do i turn off check engine light on a toyota matrix 2005 after oil and filter change


The check engine light indicates a need for a scanning with a engine scan tool (OBD-II perhaps).

An oil change will not get rid of this light.

This is very common on Matrix/Corollas and is repairable by way of replacement PCM to correct invalid parameters. the labor is low but the part is very expensive.

Expect approximately $89 or less in labor, and $648 for the new PCM

Pressure Control Solenoid P2716 toyota matrix issue


There is currently a recall going on for this problem. You can likely get your money back on the prior repairs as well. See this link http://www.toyota.com/recall/corolla-matrix.html. On the left-hand side, you can click to take you to put in your VIN and see if your vehicle is included. My 2007 vehicle IS included, and I just had the check engine light come on and have been experiencing rough shifting for about 6 months. When the light came on yesterday, it was extremely rough jerky shifting. The light went off today. Took it to Autozone and got same code P2716. Toyota has assigned me a case number, but I won't get a call back until Monday or by close of biz on Tuesday. This problem can cause your car to not start, or to shut down while driving. YIKES! The person I talked to at Toyota acted a little too nonchalant about the whole deal. Telling me to just wait for the call that I will get. She said most dealers would not have the part needed to fix this. According to what I have read. That is the reason why Toyota is not sending out the notification letters to the affected parties until mid-September. Check out all the info and good luck. I am a little bit p.o'd about this right now. - Natalie

Hard shifting and mil light is on 84000 miles


Get the car scanned for DTC codes. If you have a P2716, a Toyota dealer needs to replace the ECM; it may be free.

Pressure Control Solenoid D electrical fault (P2716)


There is a Bulletin on this concern, and it is a warrantable condition for 8 years or 80,000 miles so you are still covered by the factory warranty.
The problem is a logic issue in the PCM. The correction is a new PCM with updated software.
