2. Choose Shift Solenoid A, B, C, D, and E in the Miscellaneous Test Menu on the HDS.

NOTE: If the HDS does not communicate with the PCM, troubleshoot the DLC circuit.

3. Check that shift solenoid valves A, B, C, D, and E operate with the HDS. A clicking sound should be heard.

4. Raise the vehicle up on a lift, or apply the parking brake, block the rear wheels, and raise the front of the vehicle. Make sure it is securely supported.

5. Remove the splash shield.

7. Measure shift solenoid valve resistance between shift solenoid harness connector terminals below and body ground:

Standard: 12-25 Ω

8. Connect a jumper wire from the battery positive terminal to each shift solenoid harness connector terminals individually. A clicking sound should be heard.

9. Remove the drain plug (A), and drain the transmission fluid (ATF).

10. Reinstall the drain plug with the new sealing washer (B).

11. Make sure you have the audio system or the navigation system (if equipped) anti-theft code, and write down the audio presets.

12. Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery, then disconnect the positive terminal.

13. Remove the battery hold-down bracket, and remove the battery cover, battery, and battery tray.

14. Remove the battery base.

15. Remove the air cleaner housing and intake air duct.

16. Remove the ATF dipstick, and remove the bolts securing the ATF cooler line (A).

20. Measure the resistance of each shift solenoid valve between the connector terminals and body ground:

Standard: 12-25 Ω

21. Connect a jumper wire from the positive battery terminal to each solenoid valve terminal individually.

22. Remove the shift solenoid harness connector (A), and replace it. Install a new O-ring (B) on the shift solenoid harness connector, and install the connector in the transmission housing, then go to step 28.

24. Install new O-rings (two O-rings per solenoid valve) (F) on the reused solenoid valves.

NOTE: A new solenoid valve comes with new O-rings. If you install a new solenoid valve, use the O-rings provided on it.

25. Install shift solenoid valve C (brown connector), shift solenoid valve D (black connector), and shift solenoid valve E (black connector) by holding the shift solenoid valve body; make sure the mounting bracket contacts the servo body.

NOTE: Do not hold the solenoid valve by the connector when installing the solenoid valve. Be sure to hold the solenoid valve body.

26. Install shift solenoid valve A (brown connector) by holding the shift solenoid valve body; make sure the mounting bracket contacts the bracket of shift solenoid valve D.

NOTE: Do not install shift solenoid valve A before installing shift solenoid valve D. If shift solenoid valve A is installed before installing shift solenoid valve D, it may damage the hydraulic control system.

27. Install shift solenoid valve B (brown connector) by holding the shift solenoid valve body; make sure the mounting bracket contacts the bracket of shift solenoid valve E.

NOTE: Do not install shift solenoid valve B before installing shift solenoid valve E. If shift solenoid valve B is installed before installing shift solenoid valve E, it may damage the hydraulic control system.

28. Connect the harness terminals to the solenoids:

29. Install the shift solenoid valve cover, dowel pins, and a new gasket.

30. Install the new O-ring on the ATF dipstick guide tube, and install the guide tube then secure it with the bolts.

31. Check the connector for rust, dirt, or oil, then connect the connector securely. Install the harness clamp in its clamp bracket on the ATF dipstick guide tube.

32. Secure the ATF cooler line with the bolts.

33. Refill the transmission with ATF (see step 5).

34. Install the intake air duct and air cleaner housing.

35. Install the battery base.

36. Install the battery tray, battery, battery cover, and battery hold-down bracket, then connect battery terminals.

37. Install the splash shield.

38. Enter the audio system or the navigation system (if equipped) anti-theft code, then enter the audio presets, and set the clock.
