Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Check For Intermittent Problems

CHECK FOR INTERMITTENT PROBLEMS

1. CHECK FOR INTERMITTENT PROBLEMS

HINT:

A momentary interruption (open circuit) in the connectors and/or wire harnesses between the sensors and ECUs can be detected using the ECU Data List function of the Techstream.

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(d) Turn the Techstream on.

(e) Follow the directions on the Techstream to display the Data List and select areas where momentary interruptions should be monitored.

HINT:

  • A momentary interruption (open circuit) cannot be detected for 3 seconds after the ignition switch is turned ON (initial check).
  • If the Error display remains displayed, measure the resistance between the ECUs and sensors, or between ECUs.
  • The Error display on the Techstream will remain displayed for 1 second after the harness signal changes from momentary interruption (open circuit) to the normal condition.

(f) While observing the screen, gently jiggle the connector or wire harness between the ECU and sensors, or between ECUs.

OK:

Normal is displayed.

HINT:

If the display changes, the connector and/or the wire harness has caused a momentary interruption of the circuit. Repair or replace the connector and/or wire harness as one of them is faulty.
