    What does P0962 Mean?

    The P0962 code is a generic OBD-II trouble code that signals a problem with the pressure control solenoid control circuit in valve A. The pressure control solenoid is responsible for regulating hydraulic pressure in the transmission (used for torque converter lockup, and to aid shifting), based on information from the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM determines the proper hydraulic pressure based on the vehicle and engine speed, engine load, and the throttle position. If the PCM detects a voltage from the pressure control solenoid control circuit that is abnormally low, the P0962 code will be detected.

    What are the common causes of P0962 ?
    • Faulty Pressure Control Solenoid 'A'
    • Pressure Control Solenoid 'A' harness is open or shorted
    • Pressure Control Solenoid 'A' circuit poor electrical connection

    How do you troubleshoot P0962 ?

    Replace the oxygen sensor that is downstream from the catalytic converter on the side of the engine that does not contain cylinder #1. Also, if a oxygen sensor code stating "heater circuit malfunction" the sensor has most probably failed. With the valve disconnected, the red voltmeter lead should be attached to the IMRC valve power wire and the black voltmeter lead connected to ground. You might continue by connecting the scanner to the vehicle diagnostic connector and retrieving all stored codes and freeze frame data.
