1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).

2. Do the gauge self-diagnostic function (see page 22-332).

Does the MIL indicator flash? YES

-Go to step 3.

NO

-Substitute a known-good gauge control module, and recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away with a known-good gauge control module, replace the original gauge control module (see page 22-351 ) . 3. Connect the HDS to the DLC (see page 11-3).

4. Check the SCS in the DATA LIST with the HDS.

Is a short indicated? YES

-Go to step 5.

NO

-Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software (see page 11-203), or substitute a known-good ECM/PCM (see page 11-7), then recheck.

If the symptom/indication goes away and the ECM/PCM was updated, troubleshooting is complete.

If the symptom/indication goes away and the ECM/PCM was substituted, replace the original ECM/PCM (see page 11-204).

5. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).

6. Disconnect ECM/PCM connector A (49P), then disconnect the HDS.

7. Check for continuity between ECM/PCM connector terminal A32 and body ground.

ECM/PCM CONNECTOR A (49P)

Terminal side of female terminals


Terminal side of female terminals

Is there continuity? YES

-Repair short in the wire between the ECM/PCM (A32) and the DLC.

NO

-Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software (see page 11 -203), or substitute a known-good ECM/PCM (see page 11-7), then recheck.

If the symptom/indication goes away and the ECM/PCM was updated, troubleshooting is complete.

If the symptom/indication goes away and the ECM/PCM was substituted, replace the original ECM/PCM (see page 11-204).
