Two electrically operated solenoids control the shifting of all forward gears in the Toyota electronic control four speed automatic transmission. These solenoids are controlled by an ECU which uses throttle position and speed sensor input to determine when the solenoids are turned on. The solenoids normal position is closed, but when it is turned on, it opens to drain fluid from the hydraulic circuit. Solenoid No. 1 controls the 2-3 shift valve. It is located between the manual valve and the top of the 2-3 shift valve. Solenoid No. 2 controls the 1-2 shift valve and the 3-4 shift valve.
