shifts fine if I don't accelerate to hard, about 1/2 throttle. Once into second I can accelerate as hard as I want. And pulling my race car trailer it is fine once it goes into second

ALLISON AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

DTC P0732

Circuit Description for Allison Automatic Transmission

The transmission control module (TCM) uses input from the turbine speed sensor and output speed sensor to determine gear ratios. The TCM then compares the known gear ratio to the calculated gear ratio for the current range.

DTC P0732 is a type A DTC.

Conditions for Running the DTC

DTCs P0716, P0717, P0721, P0722, P0875, and P0876 are not active.

The components are powered and ignition voltage is greater than 9.0 volts and less than 18 volts.

Output speed exceeds 200 RPM.

Second range is attained.

Conditions for Setting the DTC

DTC P0732 sets when the calculated second range ratio, steady state, differs from the known second range ratio.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

The TCM illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) .

The transmission defaults to 3rd range while diagnostic response is active.

If the shift selector is moved to NEUTRAL, the transmission will shift to NEUTRAL.

If the shift selector is moved to REVERSE, the transmission will shift to REVERSE, unless the transmission is compromised by over speeding or direction change. If this occurs, the transmission will lock in NEUTRAL.

DTC P0732 will be stored in TCM history.

The TCM freezes shift adapts (DNA) .

The TCM inhibits torque converter clutch (TCC) engagement.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC

A scan tool can clear the code from TCM history. The TCM automatically clears the DTC from TCM history if the vehicle completes 40 warm-up cycles without failure.

Diagnostic Aids

Incorrect ratio codes typically indicate mechanical conditions with specific clutches, such as C1 and C4 for 2nd range.

Incorrect ratio code could indicate a hydraulically failed solenoid. Observe DTC information for specific solenoid.

Clutch test mode can be used to observe stall speed.

You may have to drive the vehicle in order to experience a condition.

Test Description

Steps 1-10

Zoom Sized for Print

The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.

This step tests ignition voltage.

This step tests for turbine speed not remaining at zero in second range.
