all other faults are gone but i dont know if they come back later :)
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

Does your transmission have the removable pan on the bottom, or on the front? If it is on the bottom, I would start out by checking the wiring connectors that are on the front of the transmission, see if they have fluid leaking through them into the wiring harness.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i check it and every thing look great and clean.
change the ATF oil is not solve the problem .
so many people advice me to make reprogramming for TCM ( ECU of gearbox ) .
and others told me i have to change the whole gearbox which really more than car price ! .

Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

If you can find an HHE or other 01J style CVT transmission it should work, but you may have to get the ECM as well since there may be upgrades to some systems that would not be compliant with your ECM. As long as all the connectors are the same (which they should be if it is an 01J tranny) it should be fine.

update for my problem .
i found that my gearbox have problem with clutch so i remove the gearbox and open the gearbox and i found that the clutch is burn , i think what make car over slip ,
so i plan i order new clutch set , do i need to update the clutch from 6 clutch to 7 clutch .
my engine in Bensin ( petrol) not disel , some friends told me no need update just change the clutch, and that will solve the problem .
i need your help about that and stay with me step by step in order to make good rebuild for this clutch pack .
what you suggest me to do .
thanks .
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

A problem with the clutch is not going to solve your electrical problem- when you started out you had a fault, and all gears highlighted. I understand the clutch may be burned, but that may be as a result of the transmission failing electrically, not the other way around.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I remove all faults and right now the car with out faults .
When I plan to remove gearbox I found one tube of gearbox radiator is leaking and I think that's cause overheat of gearbox and the damage the clutch .
So I think this the problem can you advice me .
