TCC Mode

Displays a range of 0 through 5. Zero (0) or Off Mode indicates that the PCM commands the TCC OFF at a calibrated minimum throttle. The calibrated minimum throttle is different at low vehicle speeds than it is at high vehicle speeds. Off Mode is also active when the transmission is in the wrong gear range, the engine or the transmission is cold, the brake input indicates that the brakes are ON, a downshift or upshift is initiated, the engine is at idle, the transmission is in Hot Mode or a misfire is detected. One (1) or Release Mode indicates that the PCM commands the release of the TCC. Two (2) or Apply Mode indicates that the PCM commands the apply of the TCC. Apply pressure varies based on normal or performance operations, hot conditions or if the cruise control is active. Apply Mode is used under normal driving conditions. All apply pressure is dependent on throttle position and vehicle speed.

Four (4) or Locked Mode indicates that the PCM commands full capacity of the TCC when the transmission is in fourth gear and the vehicle speed is greater than a calibrated value. When variable TCC apply pressure stops (Apply Mode), maximum TCC pressure is used. Five (5) or Coast Mode indicates that the PCM commands apply of the TCC when the transmission is in fourth gear and the throttle and vehicle speed are not high enough to enable Apply Mode, but high enough to keep the TCC applied. When Coast Mode is active, TCC apply pressure is set to a predetermined amount.
