• The transaxle range sensor detects the position of the manual valve and selector lever.
• The transaxle range sensor signal is used for automatic shift control, manual shift control, TCC control, line pressure control, direct electric shift control, learning control, engine-transaxle integration control, and the on-board diagnostic system.
• The transaxle range sensor consists of a housing and slider which are installed to the control valve body as a part of the TCM.
• The slider is assembled to the housing and the pin which projects from the slider and is connected to the manual valve.
• When the selector lever is operated, the manual valve strokes via the manual shaft while the slider strokes via the slider pin.
• The transaxle range sensor detects the signal corresponding to the manual valve position according to the slider stroke. This signal is calculated in the TCM and detected as a range position.
