P0796 2011 Toyota Camry Tech Notes
When 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.

Shifting 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

controls the remaining normal shift solenoid valves to allow the vehicle to be operated smoothly (Fail Safe Function).
