The P0770 code is detected when Lock up does not occur when driving in the lock up range (normal driving at 80 km/h [50 mph]), or lock up remains ON in the lock up OFF range.
The Engine Control Module (ECM) uses the signals from the Throttle Position Sensor and Air flow Meter to monitor the engagement condition of the lock-up clutch. Then the ECM compares the engagement condition of the lock-up clutch with the lock-up schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical trouble of the shift solenoid valve SLU, valve body, torque converter clutch, and automatic transmission assembly
