A self-diagnosis function is built into the electrical control system. Warning is indicated by the overdrive OFF indicator light.
Note: Warning and diagnostic codes can be read only when the overdrive switch is ON. If OFF, the overdrive OFF light is lit continuously and will not blink.
a. If a malfunction occurs within the speed sensors (No.1 or 2) or solenoids (No.1, 2 or 4), the overdrive OFF light will blink to warn the driver. However, there will be no warning of a malfunction with lock-up solenoid.
b. The diagnostic code can be read by the number of blinks of the overdrive OFF indicator light when terminals TE1 and E1 are connected.
c. The throttle position sensor or brake signal are not indicated, but inspection can be made by checking the voltage at terminal TT of the check connector.
d. The signals to each gear can be checked by measuring the voltage at terminal TT of the check connector while driving.
The diagnostic code (trouble code) is retained in memory by the CPU (of TCCS ECU) and due to back-up voltage, is not canceled out when the engine is turned off. Consequently, after repair, it is necessary to turn the ignition switch off and remove the fuse EFI (15A) or disconnect the TCCS ECU connector to cancel out the diagnostic (trouble) code.
Note: Low battery voltage will cause faulty operation of the diagnosis system. Therefore. always check the battery first. Use a voltmeter and ohmmeter that have an impedance of at least 10K Ohm/Volt.
Check "O/D Off" Indicator Light:
1. Turn the ignition switch ON.
2. The "O/D Off" light will come on when the O/D switch is placed at OFF.
3. When the O/D switch is set to ON, the "O/D Off" light should go out. If the "O/D Off" light flashes when the O/D switch is set to ON, the electronic control system is faulty.
Read Diagnostic Code:
1. Turn ignition switch and o/d switch to ON. Do not start the engine.
Engine NOTE: Warning and diagnostic codes can be read only when the overdrive switch is ON. If OFF, the overdrive OFF light will light continuously and will not blink.
2. Connect TE1, and E1, terminals of check connector.
Read the diagnostic code as indicated by the number of times the O/D OFF light flashes.
Diagnostic Code Indication:
â€¢ If the system is operating normally, the light will flash two times per second.
â€¢ In the event of a malfunction, the light will flash 1 time per second. The number of blinks will equal the first number and, after 1.5 seconds pause, the second number of the two digit diagnostic code. If there are two or more codes, there will be a 2.5 seconds pause between each.
NOTE: In the event of several trouble codes occurring simultaneously, indication will begin from the smaller value and continue to the larger.
I know this is 4 years old, but I'm replying to the original post regarding the VSS troubleshooting. And I'm a newbie
I think I'm experiencing something similar with my Blacktop 20V right now. When the CEL came up, did you feel any sudden effect on your car like power loss or did you feel perfectly normal? I'm feeling the latter.
Another thing, I read that the VSS in general is used to support ABS. Is this also the case with 4AGE? The transplant job I had didn't include any ABS, it was just engine and fuel pump. So if this is true, then the CEL issue regarding VSS can be ignored?
Gurus, please advise.
