Solenoid-Pack Information for the Chrysler 62TE

The 62TE solenoid pack is made up of six shift solenoids, one line-pressure solenoid, a temperature sensor and five pressure switches. The pressure switches are just like the ones in a 604 solenoid pack.

Body of Evidence

  • Subject: Solenoid information
  • Unit: 62TE
  • Vehicle Applications: Chrysler Sebring, Pacifica, Town & Country; Dodge Caravan
  • Essential Reading: Rebuilder, Diagnostician, R & R

The 62TE is a transmission that you will be seeing in your shop soon. It was first used in 2007 in the Chrysler Sebring with the 3.5L engine and the Pacifica with the 4.0L engine, and in 2008 it was used in the minivans with the larger 3.8L and 4.0L engines. This six-speed transmission is still being used today.

The 62TE solenoid pack is made up of six shift solenoids, one line-pressure solenoid, a temperature sensor and five pressure switches. The pressure switches are just like the ones in a 604 solenoid pack. The six shift solenoids are:

  • Low/reverse, normally closed
  • 2/4, normally open
  • Low clutch, normally closed
  • Underdrive, normally open
  • Overdrive, normally closed
  • Direct clutch, normally closed

These six solenoids look identical, but as you can see two are normally open and four are normally closed. A quick and easy way to determine whether the solenoid is open or closed is to blow compressed air into the open end of the solenoid (Figure 1). If the air is blocked it is a normally closed solenoid; if air is coming out of the holes between the two large O-rings it is normally open.

The line-pressure variable-force solenoid is part of the solenoid pack, too. The line-pressure sensor and the TCC variable-force solenoid bolt directly onto the valve body and are not part of the solenoid pack. Figure 2 shows the locations of all the solenoids and their resistance values.

When installing this valve body, it is important to route the wiring correctly, using all the clips and routing troughs in the plastic body of the solenoid pack. Failure to do this may result in wiring damage (figures 3, 4 and 5).

Figure 6 shows the solenoid-pack connector and identifies where each pin goes. Use Figure 2 for the resistance values for each solenoid. Pin 10 is the power feed for all the solenoids.
