TCC Stuck OFF
The TCM commands the TCC FWM solenoid ON by
modulating TCC signal fluid acting on the converter
clutch shift valve. Then TCC fluid applies the torque
DTC 39 Will Set When..
l TCC is commanded ON.
l TCC slip speed greater than 65 r-pm.
l Trans range in D3 or D4.
l 2nd or 3rd gear.
l All conditions are met for 2 seconds.
Transmission Control Module (TCM)
Faulty or Incorrect
The Transmission Control Module (TCM), an
on-board computer, receives and processes
input signals from sensors on the vehicle and
delivers output signals to the solenoids located
on the control valve assembly. These solenoids
control the transmission operating pressures,
upshift and downshift patterns and Torque
Converter Clutch (TCC) operation.
DTC 51 Wdl Set Whew
l There is an uncorrectable computational error,
or an input is in error intermittently.
System Voltage High Long/
System Voltage High
Ignition voltage is supplied to the control module to
indicate the status of the ignition switch_ Battery
voltage is supplied to the control module to, in part,
maintain memory of learned functions and parameters.
DTC 52 Will Set When.*
l The ignition is ON and the system voltage is
greater than 16 volts.
l Condition is met for 109 minutes.
DTC 53 WZZZ
l The ignition is ON and the system voltage
is greater than 19.5 volts.
l Condition is met for 2 minutes.
Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT)
Sensor Circuit Low
(High Temperature Indicated)
The TFI! sensor is a thermistor that controls the signal
voltage to the TCM. The TCM supplies a 5-volt
reference signal to the sensor on TWC pin L. When the
transmission fluid is cold, the sensor resistance is high
and the TCM will sense high signal voltage.
As the transmission fluid temperature warms to
normal transmission operating temperature 212°F
(lOOC), the sensor resistance becomes less and the
voltage decreases to approximately 1.5 to 2.0 volts. With
DTC 79 also set, check the transmission cooling system.
