Question about Lincoln Aviator

2 Answers

Got a code P0713 along with the check transmission light. Check transmission light will go on while I'm driving, and go away when I come to a stop. Also went away for a whole day, then came back today. The code if for a TFT sensor, high input. Called autozone, they say the Aviator is not equipped with that sensor. Called Ford, they said it comes in a whole Solenoid Pack ($437). Had a new transmission put in in January 2011, which should still be under warranty. HOWEVER Ford said this problem doesn't sound like it's covered, and they want to charge me to do their own diagnosis. Any idea what the problem could be without me having to spend an arm and a leg at the stealership?

Fault is coming from its oil temp sensor inside the transmission
that sensor doesn't normally go bad
unless transmission has had a hard life

best guess it has the 5R55S/W automatic

the high cost maybe because the sensor might be built into or integral with the electronic board. inside the transmission

its removed and replaced by dropping the pan

the oil may be getting too hot
or could be your oil is too thin and a filter and oil change required

is there and external transmission oil cooler fitted to the car
or just piped through the radiator

TFT is Transmission Fluid Temperature. Check your ATF level. Check the wiring harness that goes i to the transmission for proper connection. If your transmission has not had a service since 2011 THEN DO IT. CHANGE FILTER FLUID AND MAKE SURE THE COOLER GETS FLUSHED.

SOURCE: The check engine light is on, the ABS, and the

The P1700 is just a request for the check engine light, and this is caused by the U2108. The U2108 is basically telling you that the Electronic Brake and Traction Control Module (EBTCM) is not communicating with the powertrain control module, or the transmission control module.
The very first thing we must do is verify that the fuses that power the ebtcm are not blown and that they are powered. At this point I would like you to verify that the fuse labeled ABS in the fuse block is not blown and that it is powered with the key in the on position.
I would also like you to verify that the fuse labeled V1 inthe power distribution box is not burnt and that this is powered also. After this we need to move to the ebtcm to verify that you have voltage at pins 15,17,18 and that you have a ground at 19 and 16.

This would verify that the ebtcm is getting the proper voltage supplies to operate. The end result of this may possibly be a faulty ebtcm, but at this point we really need to check these items prior.Feel free to contact me with any questions at this point! Thanks!

SOURCE: Fuel rail pressure sensor chkt high input p0193

Mine is on too (MIL, with p0193), 2005 freestar. My dealer can't figure it out for some reason? So I went out and bought a code reader, will fix it myself!
Anyways it can be the fuel pressure sensor (approx $100 for part), the fuel pump, or regulator on the fuel line, not too sure what they are worth, and time for labour? I am currently looking for a test gauge to check the pressure in the fuel line to see if it is pump or regulator or sensor. Hopefully your service guys can run a few similar tests and determine what needs to go.

The code p0713 and p0731 come up i dont know what to do

you will need to have your transmission looked at. P0713 is a transmission fluid temp circuit high input, which means the fluid in the transmision was hot beyond limits and the other code P0731 was the first gear ratio incorrect. This could be as simple as a fluid and filter change or could be the indicator of more issues. Good luck and let me know if you need anything else.

2000 Hyundai Accent GL check engine light on. trouble codes are: PP1529, P0713, P0760, P0760, P0755.

Temp sensor in the transmission. You can replace it yourself in about an hour. Take the time to replace the filter and you'll need an additive for replacement fluid as the transmission uses 'SP3', which you can only get at the dealer.
