5. If replacing solenoids does not correct the pressure problem, a worn clutch or worn piston seals are
probably the source of the pressure leak. Remove the transmission and repair or replace as
6. This code requires accurate output and turbine speed readings. If there were no transmission prob-
lems detected, use the diagnostic tool and check the speed sensor signals for noise (erratic signals)
from low speed to high speed in the range indicated by the code.
7. If a noisy sensor is found, check the resistance of the sensor (300 ± 30 Ohms, refer to the code
22XX temperature variation chart) and its wiring for opens, shorts, and shorts-to-ground (refer to
code 22XX). Carefully check the terminals in the connectors for corrosion, contamination, or
damage. Ensure the wiring to the sensors is a properly twisted wire pair. Replace a speed sensor if
its resistance is incorrect. Isolate and repair any wiring problems. (Use a twisted-pair if a new
speed sensor circuit is needed Service Harness Twisted Pair P/N 200153 is available from
St.Clair Technologies for this purpose.)
8. If no apparent cause for the code can be found, replace the turbine and output speed sensors.
9. If the condition persists, replace the ECU. If replacing the ECU corrects the problem, reinstall the
original (bad) ECU to confirm that the problem is in the ECU. If the original ECU now works, in-
spect the ECU connectors for any corrosion or damage which may cause an intermittent condition.
If the original problem recurs, reinstall the replacement ECU.
