Customer Question

I have P0773 code on my 1998 toyota avalon and need to replace my Shift solenoid E electrical malfunction. My mechanic wants me to order the parts and I'm not sure exactly which parts to order. Is it the Shift Solenoid Valve No.1 and No. 2, Shift Solenoid Valve SL, and Shift Solenoid Valve L?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I had 3 Oxygen sensors replaced and the P0773 code is the only issue remaining after 4 different diagnostics.

HI,

DTC P0773 Shift Solenoid E Electrical Malfunction CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION The shift solenoid valve SL is turned ON and OFF by signals from the ECM to control the hydraulic pressure acting on the lock-up relay valve, which then controls operation of the lock-up clutch. Fail safe function If the ECM detects a malfunction, it turns the shift solenoid valve SL OFF.

So you need to get shift solenoid valve SL to resolve this
