Inspection Procedure 21: Engine-ECU Power Supply, Engine Control Relay, Ignition Switch-IG1 System




OPERATION



  • Battery voltage is applied to the engine control relay power supply line.
  • Engine-ECU connector terminal C/R applies current to the engine control relay coil by turning ON the power transistor in the unit in order to turn the relay ON.
  • When the engine control relay is turned ON, the battery power will be supplied from the engine control relay connector terminal to the engine-ECU, sensor and actuator.

FUNCTION



  • When the ignition switch ON signal is input into the engine-ECU via ETACS-ECU, the engine-ECU turns ON the engine control relay. This causes battery voltage to be supplied to the engine-ECU, sensor and actuator.

PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Failed battery
  • Failed engine control relay
  • Failed ignition switch <Vehicles without KOS>
  • Failed OSS-ECU <Vehicles with KOS>
  • Open/short circuit or harness damage in engine control relay circuit, or loose connector contact.
  • Open/short circuit or harness damage in ignition switch (IG1) circuit, or loose connector contact.
  • Open circuit or harness damage in engine-ECU earth circuit, or loose connector contact.
  • Failed ETACS-ECU
  • Failed engine-ECU
