The check engine light and the trac off light are both lit

Customer Question

The check engine light and the trac off light are both lit at the same time on my 2012 toyota highlander. The car runs fine. The cel is lit continuously (no blinking). Any thoughts on this?

code is P 0766 which came up twice
Expert:  Waverly Lorello replied 1 year ago.

Hi again

P0766 is related to a electrical or mechanical problem with shift Solenoid D in the transmission valve body

I would recommend having this looked at by someone having toyota transmission experience or any dealer

I have attached the diagnostic procedure but it will take a oem equivalent scan tool to diagnose and may include removing transmission pan and possibly part of the valve body assembly to diagnose if it is electrical or a mechanical failure has occurred in the transmission it self

This may or may not still be under warranty on this particular vehicle

Please ask any other questions you may have and please accept and rate the information I have given you
