Q: Mechanic told me that the P1125 cod meant that one of 2 transmission sensors had gone bad on my 2002 Toyota Echo. He does not know

asked by on August 16, 2017

I am getting a P1125 error code on y 2002 Toyota Echo that I am told by a mechanic could be either $250.00 or $350.00 to replace depending upon whether it is the small one or the larger one. Is that something which I can Jack up the car and fix myself?

My car has 169009 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

After checking the manual for the code P1125 I have found that this code is not listed for this vehicle. Can you verify the code and the vehicle information so we can help you better. i would not recommend not replacing any sensor unless the code and diagnosis is verified.

Car won't start

It is possible that the ignition switch could be the cause of this issue. I would recommend having the ignition switch in your vehicle tested by a qualified professional in your area to determine if it is functioning properly.

Depending on the hissing sound you are referring to, this may suggest you have a bit of a vacuum leak, which may be preventing the motor from starting. High idle speeds or in some cases rough idle, stalling and hissing...
