2-3 shift solenoid circuit


P0758 Chevrolet P0758 Chevrolet - 2-3 Shift Solenoid Circuit Electrical
Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valve
- 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valve harness or connectors
- 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valve circuit is open or shorted
What does this mean? When is the code detected?
When the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detects a continuous open, short to ground or short to power in the 2-3 Shift Solenoid (SS) valve circuit, then DTC P0758 sets.
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Transmission will not shift gears
P0758 Chevrolet Description
The 2-3 Shift Solenoid (SS) valve controls the fluid flow acting on the 2-3 shift valves. The 2-3 SS valve is a normally-open exhaust valve that is used with the 1-2 SS valve in order to allow four different shifting combinations. The solenoid attaches to the control valve body within the transmission. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the solenoid by providing the ground path.

What is TSB 7/2006


TSB 7/2006
Subject/Concern: Hesitations; Poor or no start; Deteriorated fuel economy; Diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) P1412, P0490 and P1335 stored
Model: Focus C-MAX 2003.75 (06/2003?¿½) Build Date: 14.02.2004-01.03.2006
Build Code: 4R-6S
Assembly Plant: Saarlouis
Engine: 2.0L Duratorq-TDCi (DW) Diesel
Focus 2004.75 (07/2004?¿½) Build Date: Up to 01.03.2006
Build Code: Up to 6S
Assembly Plant: Saarlouis
Assembly Plant: Valencia
Engine: 2.0L Duratorq-TDCi (DW) Diesel
Markets: All
Section: 303-08
Summary


Should a customer express concern about one of the following:


* hesitations,
* poor or no start,
* deteriorated fuel economy,
and upon investigation diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) P1412, P0490 and P1335 are stored in the powertrain control module (PCM), the probable cause is a sticky exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve.


To rectify this concern, a new EGR valve with a stronger EGR valve motor and revised PCM calibration should be installed.

Check engine light is on and my car hesitates when accelerating. Sometimes the check engine light will blink (instead of just stay on steadily) during moments of hesitation/acceleration.


When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

Transmission shifts from 3rd to what seems like neutral while driving (engine revs, but no acceleration). Happens around 35-40 mph and shift fine from 1-2 and 2-3, but won't shift 3-4, always goes into...


You describe a drivability issue which should turn on the Check Engine Light. Find an OBDII scanned and scan the ECU (Engine Control Unit) for any powertrain control trouble codes, then get back to me with those codes. We can take it from there.

By the way, which Hyundai vehicle is this?? Accent?.. Which year?
