DTC Troubleshooting
Step Action YES NO
Was “Engine and Emission Control System Check” performed?
Go to Step 2.
Signal circuit check
1) Turn OFF ignition switch.
2) Measure voltage at terminal “E119-35” of ECM connector, under the following condition.
Voltage at terminal “E119-35” of ECM connector
While engine cranking: 6 – 14 V
After starting engine: 0 – 1 V
Is each voltage within specified?
Poor “E119-35” connection or intermittent trouble. Check for intermittent referring to Intermittent and Poor Connection Inspection .
If wire and connections are OK, substitute a known-good ECM and recheck.
“BLK/RED” (A/T vehicle) or “BLK/YEL” (M/T vehicle) wire in open circuit or high resistance circuit.
Upon completion of inspection and repair work, perform “DTC Confirmation Procedure” and confirm that the trouble has been corrected.
