    Transmission System Problem indicator - 2017 Honda Pilot

    UPDATE on this...a month after I created this topic, Honda issued a Service Bulletin, to extend the warranty on certain 2017-2018 Honda Pilots, and 2017-2019 Honda Ridgelines, which display this trouble code. The warranty is extended to 8 years or 150,000 miles, and covers replacement of the...

    Transmission System Problem indicator - 2017 Honda Pilot

    Here is the code that is set: P0741 1. Gate Select Actuator Circuit Low. 2. Torque Converter Clutch Performance or Stuck OFF. It shows the code twice; once as Pending, and again as Confirmed. I erased the codes, and they came back two driving cycles later.

    Do you have an opinion on this scanner? It says it will scan TCM in the Questions/Answers section.

    I'm not sure if my scanner will scan the TCM? I have an Innova 5160RS

    CEL - multiple codes 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE

    Update: I decided to make a few calls, to see if I could get it checked out. Toyota service still hasn't called me back. I called a friend of a friend at a local Car Care Clinic, who is supposed to be really good. Firstly, he told me to be extremely cautious working under there because of...

    Transmission System Problem indicator - 2017 Honda Pilot

    This is my daughter's car. After driving a few minutes at highway speeds (appx. 60+ MPH), the dash gives the error message, "Transmission System Problem." Also, the shift indicator that normally shows PRND etc., flashes with all of the LEDs lit up, so it's gibberish. The car runs fine...

    CEL - multiple codes 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE

    Thanks. I also found a video of someone testing the pump motor and the solenoid by applying voltage to the proper terminals. Now I've just got to figure out how to get to it. I'm guessing it's near the gas tank? This is a hybrid and AWD so there's lots of stuff under there. I haven't done a...

    CEL - multiple codes 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE

    How would I do that? Just with an Ohm meter across each combination of connection pins?

    CEL - multiple codes 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE

    Hello, BAT: My wife's daily driver has multiple CEL codes: P2401 P043E P043F P2402 P2419 Please let me know what to check for first. Could something as simple as a bad gas cap cause these?

    Head Gasket? 2004 Toyota Avalon

    This is my brother's car. Has been losing coolant, and thought he saw some white smoke from the tailpipe. I told him to run a compression check. Here are the results: Front bank: 175, 170, 165-170 Rear bank: 135, 110, 130 I'm thinking he's losing compression between the outer and center...

    Vehicle won’t start after a deep freeze with temps in the single digits.

    I had a truck that no matter what I did, it was very difficult to start in cold weather...to the point that I once thought it had jumped timing. I started putting a bottle of HEET in it with every fill-up, and that solved my problem. Like grcauto suggests, my problem was water/ice in the fuel...

    Intermittent misfire 1997 Chevy S10 4.3L, 151k miles

    It's going to be the weekend or so before I have time to look at the truck again. I did drive it to work today, about a 20 minute drive, and it ran great! Never did miss. It maybe shuttered or stumbled just a little bit at idle, but that may be motor mounts. As for the headlights, I spliced...

    1988 Lincoln Town Car no start.

    Like billr and grcauto said, start with a known good battery. My Mom had a 1997 Lincoln that, if it set for a few days (she didn't drive it frequently), the battery would drain. I had to use an amp meter, and wait about an hour after shutting it off. It was still drawing amps...I pulled...

    Intermittent misfire 1997 Chevy S10 4.3L, 151k miles

    Thanks, Nick! I'll look into that. As for grc, I think he's talking about the dim headlights.

    Intermittent misfire 1997 Chevy S10 4.3L, 151k miles

    Nickb2, thanks for your very helpful insights, as well as your humor! The CEL does not illuminate with the key on…you might be onto something when you say it may have been on so long that it burnt out. THANKS for the diagram and diagnostic instructions! I’ll try grounding the brown/white...

    Intermittent misfire 1997 Chevy S10 4.3L, 151k miles

    I recently purchased a 1997 Chevy S10 with the 4.3L engine, automatic transmission, 151k miles. It had set up for awhile, and needed lots of TLC. I replaced the idler and tensioner pulleys, thermostat (and flushed the radiator/block), and addressed a couple of other obvious issues. It had a...

    2006 Club Car UTV Ingersol Rand XRT 810 - no crank

    :fixed: I called Ladd's golf carts up in Memphis, and a tech there told me to look for a sticker that said either "W/O ACR" or "W ACR" on it. I found a dirt-covered sticker that says, "W/O ACR" which means the engine does not have automatic compression release. So that made me feel better...

    2006 Club Car UTV Ingersol Rand XRT 810 - no crank

    I did find this website https://www.engine-specs.net/kawasaki/fe350.html that says, "mechanical governor and recoil starter with automatic compression release (electric starter was available as an option)."
