In each of the above cases, this happens when ECU doesn’t sense near 0vdc or 12vdc when the solenoid is turned on or off. When code 36 is thrown the power limited light will not be lit and the system does not enter limp mode.
Poor wiring or connection - Read the page ‘How to troubleshoot drivability issues’. Check the wiring and connections from the logic module to the solenoids. Clean and re-grease the connectors with dielectric grease.
Defective solenoid - The solenoids are located in the right, front fender in a cluster of up to 4 solenoids. If a signal from the harness to the solenoid measures 12vdc when the solenoid is off the solenoid will need to be repaired or replaced. See Solenoids-101 for information about how solenoids work and can be tested.
