6-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE OIL TEMPERATURE┬áSENSOR DTC P0711, P0712 & P0713
This bulletin provides information related to replacing the transaxle oil temperature sensor on 6-speed automatic transaxles with DTC P0711, P0712 and/or P0713. Replace the oil temperature sensor if current or history code is present; Do not replace the transaxle. To reduce vehicle repair time, this procedure can be performed with the transaxle installed in the vehicle. Photos shown are on-bench to increase the clarity and understanding of this procedure. This is a generic procedure and does not account for minor variations between models.
DTC P0711, P0712, and P0713 can be set due to a faulty PCM, an open circuit, or a bad transaxle oil temperature sensor. When either of these codes is set, the default value for the transaxle oil temperature sensor is 176┬░F (80┬░ C). Prior to replacing the temperature sensor, perform a component and wire harness inspection as shown in the KGIS DTC diagnostics. Only proceed with sensor R&R after confirming proper connections, circuits, and PCM simulation checks.
