2. CHECK DTC

  1. Check DTC.
  2. Perform the following procedure if DTC is displayed.
  • Record DTC and freeze frame data (Print them out with CONSULT.)
  • Erase DTC.
  • Study the relationship between the cause detected by DTC and the symptom described by the customer.
  1. Check related service bulletins for information.

Is any symptom described and any DTC detected?

Symptom is described, DTC is detected.

Symptom is not described, DTC is detected.

Symptom is described, DTC is not detected.

3. CONFIRM THE SYMPTOM

Confirm the symptom described by the customer.

Connect CONSULT to the vehicle in "DATA MONITOR" mode and check real time diagnosis results.

Verify relation between the symptom and the condition when the symptom is detected.

4. CONFIRM THE SYMPTOM

Confirm the symptom described by the customer.

5. CHECK NORMAL OPERATING CONDITION

Check normal operating condition. Refer to ADP-166, "Description".

6. PERFORM BASIC INSPECTION

Isolate the malfunctioning part with the basic inspection. Refer to ADP-8, "Preliminary Check".

7. PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

Perform DTC Confirmation Procedure for the displayed DTC, and then check that DTC is detected again.

At this time, always connect CONSULT to the vehicle, and check diagnostic results in real time.

If two or more DTCs are detected, refer to BCS-63, "DTC Inspection Priority Chart" and determine trouble diagnosis order.

NOTE:

  • Freeze frame data is useful if the DTC is not detected.

    If the result of Component Function Check is NG, it is the same as the detection of DTC by DTC Confirmation Procedure.
