Kia Cee'd: Dual Clutch Transmission Control System / Inhibitor Switch Repair procedures

Inspection
1.
Inspect for loosened connectors, faulty connections, bends, corrosion, contamination, deformation, or damage.
2.
Disconnect the inhibitor switch connector.
3.
Check the voltage on the power supply terminal and the ground of the inhibitor switch wiring.
Normal voltage: Approximately 12 V
4.
Use the following signal code chart to check the electric current flow for each terminal in each gear.

Removal
1.
Remove the air cleaner assembly and air duct.
(Refer to Engine Mechanical System - "Air cleaner")
  
Place the gear shift lever and manual control lever to the N position when performing maintenance on the inhibitor switch.
2.
Disconnect the inhibitor switch connector (A).

3.
Remove the shift cable mounting nut (A).
Tightening torque:
9.8 ~ 14.7 N.m (1.0 ~1.4 kgf.m, 7.2 ~ 10.8 lb-ft)

4.
Loosen the nut (A), and then remove the manual lever (B).
5.
Loosen the mounting bolt, and then remove the inhibitor switch (C).

Installation
1.
Install in the reverse order of removal.
  
Using a SST(09480-A3800), fix the inhibitor manual control lever in the N jig hole (A) when you assemble the inhibitor (B).

Adjust the shift cable after you install the inhibitor switch.
(Refer to Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) Control System - "Shift lever")
