P0778 2011 TOYOTA CAMRY - Pressure Control Solenoid 'B' Electrical Valve SL2
P0778 2011 Toyota Camry Possible Causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid valve SL2
- Shift solenoid valve SL2 harness is open or shorted
- Shift solenoid valve SL2 circuit poor electrical connection
- Valve body is blocked
P0778 2011 Toyota Camry Tech NotesWhen a transmission solenoid is malfunctioned, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is dirty, it's recommended to change the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a mechanical transmission failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

P0778 2011 Toyota Camry MeaningShifting from 1st to 5th is performed in combination with “ON’ and “OFF operation of the shift solenoid valves SL1, SL2, SL3, S4 and SR which are controlled by the ECM. If an open or short circuit occurs in either of the shift solenoid valves, the ECM controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves to allow the vehicle to be operated smoothly (Fail Safe Function).
