This switch is for the Electronic controlled transmission. in the normal position the transmission uses its normal shift points. In the PWR position the shift point are delayed to give you the illusion of more power. Keep it in the normal position for everyday driving.

What does ECT PWR green light on dash mean? It just popped up at 160k


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The ECT PWR light is on because someone has inadvertantly bumped the switch. Look on the console, by the shifter, or on the dash for a switch labeled ECT. Turn it off, and the light will go out.

The ECT PWR mode, when activated, increases the time that the transmission shifts up thru the gears. Without the mode selected, the first shift would be at 18-20 mph. With the mode selected, the first shift would be 20-22 mph. This mode basically allows the shift to occur later, and is normally used when you are towing something, or if you have a large load of cargo in the car.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance. Have a great day.

What is the ECT power button for on the 1997 rav4


The ECT button (which stands for "Electronically Controlled Transmission")
changes the shift points for the automatic transmission. When engaged,
the transmission shifts later, allowing the engine to get to a higher
power level and accelerate faster. Gas mileage is usually reduced in
this mode. Use it when you need to get up to speed faster; for example,
to merge into fast moving traffic. The normal position for this switch
is OFF. ECT acts like a turbo. Now dont go on street racing ;)

Where do I find the ETC PWR switch on a 2008 Lexus IS250 AWD?


On North American IS250 it is to the right of the steering wheel below the ignition button. There should be two switches ECT and TRAC side by side

Need info on timing belt 1998 hyundai elantra


The timing belt is normally replaced at 100,000 km (approx. 60,000 mi), but must be checked for wear and tear starting 75,000 km(approx. 45,000 mi) along with a major tune-up.

The switch near the shifter is the ECT (transmission control) which selects NORMal driving mode, and PoWeR mode. It is the battle between economy (NORM) and driving performance (PWR). As tested, the PWR mode delays your A/T upshift to a higher RPM. This utilizes your engine's higher revs, but really cuts into fuel economy.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1996 L400. There is a switch ECT PWR. What is it for? What does it do? When should I use it?


Hi there;
The ECT PWR switch. ECT stands for Electronicaly controled transmission. This switch controls the shift pattern of the transmission. In the PWR possition it will delay the shifts somewhat to give your car more power.
You would use this if you are in a possition where you need to accerate quickly from a light or to pass someone & need more power.

I hope this helps
Farrout!

Green light ext pwr


The ECT/power light is controlled by the ECT switch on the console. WHat it does is stretches the shift point from 1-2 and 2-3 when you are carrying a large load, or towing something. For maximum fuel economy, the light should be switched off.
