NOTE: Use copies of this page for interviewing customers.

Subaru Outback. Continuously Variable Transmission (Diagnostics)

General Description

A: CAUTION

1. SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM "AIRBAG"

The airbag system wiring harness is routed near the TCM.

CAUTION:

2. MEASUREMENT

When measuring the voltage and resistance of the ECM, TCM or each sensor, use a tapered pin with a diameter of less than 0.64 mm (0.025 in) in order to avoid poor contact. Do not insert a pin of more than 0.65 mm (0.026 in) diameter.

B: INSPECTION

1. BATTERY

Measure the battery voltage and specific gravity of the electrolyte.

Standard voltage: 12 V or more
Specific gravity: 1.260 or more

2. TRANSMISSION GROUND

Make sure that the ground terminal bolt is tightened securely.

Tightening torque: 16 N*m (1.6 kgf-m, 11.8 ft-lb)

3. OPERATION OF SHIFT SELECT LEVER

Make sure there is no noise, dragging or contact pattern in each select lever range.

WARNING: Stop the engine while checking operation of the select lever.

Learning Control

A: GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Replacement of TCM/Replacement or disassembly of transmission assembly/Replacement of control valve body/Performing "Clear Memories 2".

B: PROCEDURE

1. PREPARATION FOR LEARNING

1) Warm up or cool down until the ATF temperature displayed on the Subaru Select Monitor is 40 - 65ºC (104 - 149ºF).

2) After stopping the vehicle, shift the select lever to "P" range.

3) Apply the electronic parking brake.

4) Lift up the vehicle.

CAUTION: While working, be sure to keep the lower edge of the tires 30 cm or more above the ground as vehicle will vibrate.

5) Connect the Subaru Select Monitor to data link connector.

6) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

7) Turn off all switches causing an electrical load, such as headlights, A/C, seat heater and rear defogger.

2. SIMPLE LEARNING

NOTE: Simple learning is performed with the vehicle lifted, without actually running the vehicle.

CAUTION: Do not turn the power of the Subaru Select Monitor OFF during work, and do not disconnect the data link connector.

1) Select {AT related learning & inspecting mode} in the "Transmission Diagnosis" display screen of the Subaru Select Monitor.

2) Select {AT learning mode} in the "AT related learning & inspecting mode" screen of the Subaru Select Monitor.

3) Follow the messages displayed on the Subaru Select Monitor screen when working.

NOTE: During AT learning in progress, AT OIL TEMP light in the combination meter starts flashing at 2 Hz and the learning operation starts. The following message is displayed on the screen when the AT OIL TEMP light which was flashing at 2 Hz turns off.

4) When "AT learning normally ended." is displayed, simple AT learning is completed.

NOTE:

AT OIL TEMP Warning Light Display

A: OPERATION

The AT OIL TEMP light illuminates or blinks, when the ATF temperature is high and malfunction occurs in CVT.

AT OIL TEMP light always illuminates when the ignition switch is ON (engine OFF). Light goes off after two seconds from engine ON.

AT OIL TEMP light illuminates when the ATF temperature is abnormally high with engine ON.

AT OIL TEMP light blinks at 2 Hz when the TCM detects the malfunction of CVT with engine ON. In this case, inspect using "Diagnostic Procedure with Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC)". <Ref. to CVT(diag)-35, Diagnostic Procedure with Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC).>

AT OIL TEMP light repeats "Blinking at 4 Hz → Turning OFF" every two seconds, when the AT learning is not finished with engine ON. In this case, perform the "Learning". (During AT learning, the light blinks at 2 Hz or illuminates.) <Ref. to CVT(diag)-20, Learning Control.>

  1. Ignition switch condition
  2. Engine condition
  1. When normal
  2. When ATF temperature is high
  3. When malfunction is detected
  4. When AT learning is not finished

IF the AT OIL TEMP light does not illuminate, or illumination patterns are not as above, check the AT OIL TEMP light circuit. <Ref. to CVT(diag)-23, INSPECTION, AT OIL TEMP Warning Light Display.>

AWD Warning Light Display

A: OPERATION

AWD light illuminates or blinks, when the AWD is in special control condition and AWD has malfunction.

AWD light always illuminates when the ignition switch is ON (engine OFF). Light goes off after two seconds from engine ON.

AWD light illuminates, when the AWD ON/OFF switching function is "FF mode" with engine ON.

AWD light blinks at 2 Hz when any of following malfunctions are detected with engine ON.

  1. When tire with different diameter is installed, or air pressure of any of four wheels is excessively low
  2. When "Rear differential inspection mode" is judged as NG <Ref. to DI-84, Rear Differential Inspection Mode.>

Subaru Outback. Continuously Variable Transmission (Diagnostics)

  1. Ignition switch condition
  2. Engine condition
  1. When normal
  2. When FF mode is selected
