Second generation YD (2014-2019) / Kia Forte TD 2014-2019 Service Manual / Automatic Transaxle System / Automatic Transaxle Control System / Transaxle Control Module (TCM) Description

Transaxle Control Module (TCM) is the automatic transaxle's brain. The module receives and processes signals from various sensors and implements a wide range of transaxle controls to ensure optimal driving conditions for the driver. TCM is programmed for optimal response to any on-road situation. In the event of a transaxle failure or malfunction, TCM stores the fault information in memory so that the technician may reference the code and quickly repair the transaxle.
