Question about 2003 Toyota RAV4

1 Answer

PO325 code The solenoid has been replaced, I have had the CMU worked on and a new CMU also. My question is ...If the new solenoid went bad again for who knows what reason can the computer still be reading it. The vehicle shifts into 4th gear once after being started, but if you come to a stop it will not shift into 4th again (unless you turn the vehicle off and restart it) then it shifts again. We have been having trouble with this vehicle since we bought it from a private owner in May. Thanks

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.


Reference bulletin #TC015-07

The contents are below:

TRANSMISSION & CLUTCH
TC015-07 Title:

DTC - PO340, PO325


My Nissan micro 2004 model just stopped in the middle of the road one day then the engine management light came on, anyway took it to my local garage TWK Thomas who said it was a cam shaft sensor problem. OK so sensor was put on, engine management light went off for two days only. So went back to the garage they said that another sensor should be fitted on the opposite side. And then the problem should be rectified, but i had given the £160 for this problem to be fixed the first time. I decided it was time to take it to another garage Nis Tec they put it on the computer and a code po340 came up would this mean another sensor or the cam chain has stretched please help. ...claire

I have 1998 Nissan Frontier with an engine light on. I paid a mechanic to put in a speed sensor and the light came back on the day after he put in the new part. The codes before he worked on the truck were...


the PO 325 code is for VSS vichicle speed sensor and PO500 is for a knock sensor,so you will need to see what the new code is to be able to help you, the engine power manegment is controled by both get it scanned by autozone or the mechanic that did the work and see if it's the same code, if it is you may have a short or an ecm going bad. let us know what codes you find.
