    What does P0961 Mean?

    The Pressure Control (PC) Solenoid Valve an electronic pressure regulator that controls transmission line pressure based on current flow through its coil windings. As current flow is increased, the magnetic field produced by the coil moves the solenoid’s plunger further away from the exhaust port. Opening the exhaust port decreases the output fluid pressure regulated by the PC solenoid valve, which ultimately decreases line pressure. The line pressure solenoid valve regulates the oil pump discharge pressure to suit the driving condition in response to a signal sent from the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

    What are the common causes of P0961 ?

    Several problems may cause a P0961 code including:
    • Damaged or defective electrical wiring
    • Damaged or defective pressure control solenoid A
    • Low transmission fluid levels
    • Dirty transmission fluid
    • Damaged or defective transmission control module
    • Possible ECM failure (rare)

    How do you troubleshoot P0961 ?

    The engine system, in conjuction with the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM), activates the P0961 code solenoid valve to control oil pressure to the engine mechanism that is installed in the valve system to switch valve timing between Low and High.If the engine solenoid valve has an open or short circuit, a DTC is stored.
