Is there continuity? YES

-Repair a short to body ground in the wire between the No. 6 (7.5 A) fuse in the driver's under-dash fuse/relay box and the VSA modulatorcontrol unit or the yaw rate-lateral acceleration sensor.

NO

-lnstall a new No. 6 (7.5 A) fuse in the driver's under-dash fuse/relay box, then go to step 6.

6. Reconnect all connectors.

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

8. Check the ABS indicator, the brake system indicator and the VSA indicator for several seconds when the ignition switch is turned to ON (II).

Do the indicators come on then go off? YES-

The troubleshooting is complete.

NO

-Replace the VSA modulator-control unit (see page 19-136).

9. Do the gauge control module troubleshooting (see page 22-332).

Is the gauge control module OK? YES

-Go to step 10.

NO

-Substitute a known good gauge control module (see page 22-351). If it is OK, replace the original gauge control module (see page 22-351).

10. Disconnect the VSA modulator-control unit 36P connector (see step 3 on page 19-137).

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

12. Measure the voltage between VSA modulator-control unit 36P connector terminal No. 30 and body ground.
