  1. P0770 Toyota – Shift Solenoid ‘E’ Malfunction

    The ECM uses the signals from the Throttle Position Sensor and Air flow Meter to monitor the engagement condition of the lock up clutch. Then the ECM compares the engagement condition of the lock up clutch with the lock up schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical trouble of the shift solenoid valve SLU, valve body, torque converter clutch and automatic transmission assembly

    Possible causes
    – Low transmission fluid level
    – Dirty transmission fluid
    – Faulty shift solenoid ‘E’ valve
    – Shift solenoid ‘E’ valve harness is open or shorted
    – Shift solenoid ‘E’ valve circuit poor electrical connection

    When is the code detected?
    The P0770 code is detected when Lock up does not occur when driving in the lock up range (normal driving at 80 km/h [50 mph]), or lock up remains ON in the lock up OFF range.
