Automatic Disconnecting Differential Motor Limit Switch Circuit

  • Diagnosis Condition: Directly after the ignition switch is turned to ON, or while switching between 2WD and H4 (A.D.D. shift motor operating) with the ignition switch turned to ON
  • Malfunction Status: The ON/OFF combination of DL1, DL2 and ADD does not match the pattern
  • Malfunction Time: 0 seconds
  • Other: 1 trip detection logic
  • Wire harness and connector
  • 4 wheel drive control ECU
  • A.D.D. actuator (differential vacuum actuator assembly)
