Answer

Hi Scott. First off let me explain the code on your Toyota Camry. A P0773 code is Transmission Shift Solenoid "E" Electrical. Basically that means that there is an electrical or mechanical problem with one of the shift solenoids as part of the transaxle / transmission, the associated wiring, or the PCM.

To diagnose the problem, you'll want to narrow down where the problem lies. I found some good troubleshooting steps here, which basically involve checking :

  1. The resistance between terminal SL of the ECM and the chassis ground;
  2. The harness and connector between the ECM and automatic connector transaxle solenoid
  3. The shift solenoid valve SL

Please read the instructions in that link to get a feel for whether this is something you can perform yourself. If you have any doubts, please consult a qualified mechanic. Good luck!
