The No. 2 ATF temperature sensor is on the transmission, just in front of the oil cooler inlet pipeline. If the ECM detects an abnormally high ATF temperature near this sensor, it illuminates the warning light. HINT:
• ATF temperature rises quickly when towing, climbing hills, in traffic, etc.
• If the No. 2 ATF temperature sensor becomes short-circuited, the signal that indicates that the ATF temperature is 150°C (302°F) or higher is input to the ECM.
Vehicle conditions when the sensor is normal and when the sensor is short-circuited are indicated in the table below.
