Description

Transaxle Control Module (TCM) is the automatic transaxle's brain. The module receives and processes signals from various sensors and implements a wide range of transaxle controls to ensure optimal driving conditions for the driver. TCM is programmed for optimal response to any on-road situation. In the event of a transaxle failure or malfunction, TCM stores the fault information in memory so that the technician may reference the code and quickly repair the transaxle.

Functions
Х Monitors the vehicle's operating conditions to determine the optimal gear setting.
Х Performs a gear change if the current gear setting differs from the identified optimal gear setting.
Х Determines the need for damper clutch (D/C) activation and engages the clutch accordingly.
Х Calculates the optimal line pressure level by constantly monitoring the torque level and adjusts the pressure accordingly.
Х Diagnoses the automatic transaxle for faults and failures.
