    My car did the same thing, I took it to AutoZone and they checked the engine light and said it was the same error. I am taking my car immediately tomorrow morning.

    The code is P2716 and the check engine light is on. Trans seems to be shifting hard, but is still shifting. In my search, I have found that the parts stores that have them list three. Auto Zone's price is a little steep!! On the other hand, Rockauto has them for almost half the price. But they both list three. I don't know witch one is bad. They list a number one,two and three and all look different. I am wondering if anyone knows what each one does by number and maybe this will help me find the culprit.

I have a 07 corolla, i pulled the same code (p2716) after experiencing harsh shifting and the "Check Engine" light came on. It appears to be a known issues with '05-'07 Matrix and corolla . there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TC015-07) from Toyota
It calls for replacement of the ECU (PCM)(engine control unit). the TSB also states
"this repair is covered under the Toyota Federal Emissions Warranty. this warranty is in
effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the vehicles in-service date". safest bet is to take it to the dealership and have them replace the part under warranty

Hey Everyone!

It turns out that it's the computer of the car (aka the Brain). You can easily have this fixed for free if:

This warranty is in effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the vehicle’s
in-service date.

I'm taking mine soon.

Get your ECM checked out!

I was driving on the freeway when I noticed that I couldn't accelerate. The my service engine light turned on. I shut off my engine, but when I tried to turn it back on, no luck.

SOURCE: oem code p2716

The pressure control solenoid controls the fluid pressure inside the transmission, which governs the speed at which each gear is engaged, or it's harshness. This code could indicate a sticking solenoid, or a faulty solenoid, or a problem with the electrical signal to the solenoid. Does the vehicle still have a current warranty (being so new)? If so, it is highly likely that this fault would be repaired by the dealership for free, as it seems unlikely that it could be caused by external factors. You could check under the car to see if there is any sign of impact damage or similar to the transmission to at least attempt to rule this out..

Hope this helps,

Pressure Control Solenoid P2716

have the code checked especially if the car is out of warranty. If it is still under warranty take the car to the dealership . The Pressure Control Solenoid determines the quality and accuracy of the shift points and if you let it go the transmission will not shift properly after a period of time. The pressure control solenoid is used by the PCM to raise the mainline hydraulic pressure during high throttle - this increases the holding force on the clutches and bands and prevents slipping. The pressure control solenoid is controlled by pulses from the PCM and this in turn operates the boost valve insde the valve body.

The problem could be either in the PCM or it could be an electrical problem with the solenoid. As suggested it should be diagnosed by a transmission tech. They can check if the PCM is good by looking at the pulses with an oscilloscope at the connector and they should also be able to test the continuity of the solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty the valve body will need to be removed and the solenoid replaced.
good luck

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 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

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.

Reference bulletin #TC015-07

The contents are below:

TC015-07 Title:
DTC P2716 Models:
'05 - '07 Corolla & Matrix (1ZZ-FE) September 20, 2007

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.

Applicable Vehicles
^ 2005 - 2007 model year Corolla and Matrix (2WD) vehicles equipped with the 1ZZ-FE engine.
Warranty Information
Applicable Warranty*:
This repair is covered under the Toyota Federal Emissions Warranty. This warranty is in effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the vehicle's in-service date.
