The automatic transmission manual shift shaft position switch assembly, also called the internal mode switch assembly, contains two sliding hall-effect switch assemblies attached to the control valve body within the transmission. The 9 outputs from the switches indicate which position is selected by the transmission manual shaft. Four outputs (A, B, C, P) are range selection inputs to the transmission control module (TCM). Five outputs (R1, R2, D1, D2, S) are direction selection inputs to the hybrid powertrain control module. The Range input signals are represented as TCM scan tool parameters, Internal Mode Switch A, B, C, and P. The Direction input signals are represented as hybrid powertrain control module scan tool parameters, Internal Mode Switch 2 – R1, R2, D1, D2, and S. The input voltage at the modules is high when a switch is open and low when a switch is closed to earth. Each control module independently supplies power and earth to its respective switch assembly.
The hybrid powertrain control module is internal to the power inverter module, often referred to as the drive motor generator power inverter module and is not serviced separately.
