SHIFT LOCK MECHANISM CHECK



SYSTEM CHECK


Inspection procedure
Check conditions
Items to be checked (Normal conditions)
Possible cause of abnormality
1
Brake pedal not depressed
Ignition switch position: LOCK, ACC or removed
The selector lever cannot be moved out of the "P" position

  • Abnormality in the shift lock link (stuck, disengaged, broken, etc.)
  • Abnormality in the electrical circuit (short circuit in the switches or harnesses)
  • Abnormality in the key interlock mechanism

2
Brake pedal depressed

  • Abnormality in the electrical circuit (short circuit in the switches or harnesses)
  • Abnormality in the key interlock mechanism

3
Brake pedal not depressed
Ignition switch position: ON

  • Abnormality in the shift lock link (stuck, disengaged, broken, etc.)
  • Abnormality in the electrical circuit (short circuit in the switches or harnesses)

4
Brake pedal depressed
The selector lever can be moved from the "P" position to other positions smoothly.

  • Abnormality in the shift lock link (stuck, disengaged, broken, etc.)
  • Abnormality in the electrical circuit (short circuit in the switches or harnesses)

5
Shift lock release button pressed

  • Abnormality in the shift lock link (stuck, disengaged, broken, etc.)

6
Brake pedal depressed / not depressed
The selector lever can be moved from the "R" position to the "P" position smoothly.

  • Abnormality in the shift lock link (stuck, disengaged, broken, etc.)


COMPONENT PARTS CHECK



SHIFT LOCK LINK




Check each part for damage and disengagement.
Check that the lock lever smoothly moves in the direction of arrow B in the figure when the shift lock solenoid plunger is pressed in the direction of arrow A, and smoothly moves back to the original position when the plunger is released.

ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT



Check for the following operations.

  • With the selector lever in P position, apply voltage (equivalent to the battery voltage) between the selector lever assembly connector terminals No. 3 and No. 6, and between terminals No. 4 and No. 6. Check that the shift lock solenoid operates normally while the voltage is applied, and moves back to the original position when the voltage is removed.
  • With the selector lever moved to the position other than P, apply voltage (equivalent to the battery voltage) between the selector lever assembly connector terminals No. 3 and No. 6, and between terminals No. 4 and No. 6. Check that the shift lock solenoid does not operate at this time.
