This is a "pressure control solenoid" code. It is related to the transmission and can mean a couple things. It could need the solenoid replaced, which is quite expensive. The other is a possible PCM failure. This has been quite common thing with the Vibe, the Corolla and the Matrix. They all have the same drivetrain. Pontiac has a service bulletin related to this #41554A. I would recommend calling the dealership and if it is under warrantee it should be covered 100%. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 2005 Pontiac Vibe having trouble shifting 1st 2nd code P2716 MIL

This is most likely due to a bad solenoid pack in transmission. You could have tranny serviced and see if it helps. Poor fluid condition makes valves stick in those.

I got a 2005 pontiac vibe cant not get no one to know how to fix it. Pressure Control Solenoid code p2716 keep poping up when i get it looked at . I want to know if i can get info on where to buy it. ...


If no one has been able to find the issue with this.It is possible that the pcm may be having an issue of sorts and may need replaced. There are a few tests that should be run prior to condemning the vehicles computer. Info yyou would like the testing info let me know but fully capable a scan tool is required for a portion of testing.



Circuit Description
The throttle pressure that is applied to the primary regulator valve modulates the line pressure causing the line pressure solenoid valve to precisely modulate and create line pressure according to throttle position or engine load. This modulation action controls the line pressure which in turn provides smoother shifts between gears.
When the powertrain control module (PCM) receives the throttle position opening angle, the PCM controls the line pressure by sending a predetermined duty cycle to the solenoid valve.
The line pressure solenoid valve controls the transaxle line pressure for smooth transaxle operation based on signals from the throttle position (TP) sensor and the vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
When the PCM detects a continuous open or short to ground in the line pressure solenoid circuit, then DTC P2716 sets.
DTC P2716 is a type B DTC.
DTC DescriptorThis diagnostic procedure supports the following DTC:
DTC P2716 Line Pressure Control Solenoid
Conditions for Running the DTCPCM detects a open or short to ground in line pressure solenoid circuit.
Conditions for Setting the DTCDTC P2716 sets when either of the following conditions occurs:
• The PCM detects an open in the solenoid circuit. • The PCM detects an short to ground in the solenoid circuit. Action Taken When the DTC Sets • At the time of the first failure, the PCM records the operating conditions when the Conditions for Setting the DTC are met. The PCM stores this information as a Failure Record. • The PCM illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) during the first consecutive failure in which the Conditions for Setting the DTC are met. • The PCM turns OFF power to the solenoid. • The PCM stores DTC P2716 in PCM history. Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC • A scan tool can clear the MIL/DTC. • The PCM clears the DTC from PCM history if the vehicle completes 40 warm-up cycles without an emission related diagnostic fault occurring.

Code P2716. car seems to shift fine. it is a 2006


This code is for the pressure control solenoid located in the valve body of the transmission. I recommend getting this solenoid replaced and the wiring harness leading from the outside of the transmission to the valve body inspected for signs of transmission fluid leaking into connection of harness as this will cause issues too. Ignoring this code can lead to poor trans shifting and possible engine stalls.

Engine light stays on , auto tranny now shifts hard


if you had the fluid changed they probably used the wrong fluid only use type iv fluid available through gm or toyota
