  • Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor circuit poor electrical connection

How do I fix code P0710?

Check the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.

Cost of diagnosing the P0710 code

Labor: 1.0

The cost of diagnosing the P0710 code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary by location, your vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

When is the code detected?

Transmission Control Module (TCM) detects excessively low or high voltage from the fluid temperature sensor.

Possible Symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
  • Possible shifting problems

P0710 Description

The ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) Temperature Sensor converts the fluid temperature into a resistance value. The sensor resistance changes with the transmission fluid temperature. As the temperature becomes higher, the sensor resistance decreases. The Transmission Control Module (TCM) monitors the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) Temperature Sensor signal. The TCM sets the OBDII code when the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) Temperature Sensor signal is out of factory specifications.
