Kia Optima Hybrid: Automatic Transaxle Control System / Transaxle Control Module (TCM) Repair procedures

Inspection
TCM Problem Inspection Procedure
1.
TEST TCM GROUND CIRCUIT: Measure resistance between TCM and chassis ground using the backside of TCM harness connector as TCM side check point. If the problem is found, repair it.

Specification: Below 1?

2.
Test TCM Connector: Disconnect the TCM connector and visually check the ground terminals on TCM side and harness side for bent pins or poor contact pressure. If the problem is found, repair it.
3.
If problem is not found in Step 1 and 2, the TCM could be faulty. If so, make sure there were no DTC''s before swapping the TCM with a new one, and then check the vehicle again. If DTC''s were found, examine this first before swapping TCM.
4.
Re - test the Original TCM : Install the original TCM (may be broken) into a known-good vehicle and check the vehicle. If the problem occurs again, replace the original TCM with a new one. If problem does not occur, this is intermittent problem.
Removal
   
Be sure to read and follow the “General Safety Information and Caution” before doing any work related with the high voltage system. Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.
Be sure to shut off the high voltage circuit according to the “High Voltage Shut-off Procedures” before doing any work related with the high voltage system to avoid serious electrical injuries.
1.
Disconnect the 12V battery negative (-) cable.
2.
Remove the air duct (A).
