Inspection Procedure 9: The combination meter lamp does not illuminate normally or the multi-information display is not displayed normally.

caution Before replacing the combination meter, be sure to check that the power supply circuit, earth circuit, and communication circuit are normal.


When the signal from each ECU is received via the CAN communication, the combination meter illuminates the corresponding display lamp or warning lamp, or has the multi-information display to display corresponding information.
If the lamps do not illuminate or the multi-information display does not display normally, the wiring harness and connector(s) in the CAN bus lines, each ECU (that sends a signal) or the combination meter may have a problem.



STEP 1. M.U.T.-III CAN bus diagnostics

Use the M.U.T.-III to diagnose the CAN bus lines.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 2.

Repair the CAN bus line (Refer to GROUP 54C - Troubleshooting ).

STEP 2. M.U.T.-III diagnosis code

Check again if the diagnosis code is set to the combination meter.

Q. Is the diagnosis code set?

Refer to .

Go to Step 3.

STEP 3. M.U.T.-III other system diagnosis code

Check again if the diagnosis code is set to the engine-ECU, CVT-ECU, A/T-ECU, 4WD-ECU, ABS-ECU, ASC-ECU, ACC/FCM-ECU, AS&G-ECU, EPS-ECU, WCM, KOS-ECU, OSS-ECU, SRS-ECU, ETACS-ECU, heater controller assembly (A/C-ECU) and LDW-ECU.

Q. Is the diagnosis code set to the any of the above?

Set to the engine. : Troubleshoot the engine (Refer to GROUP 13A - Diagnosis Code Chart <4B1>, GROUP 13C -Troubleshooting <4J1>, GROUP 13D -Troubleshooting <4N1>).

Set to the CVT-ECU. : Troubleshoot the CVT. Refer to GROUP 23A - Diagnosis code chart .

Set to the A/T-ECU. : Troubleshoot the CVT. Refer to GROUP 23C - Diagnosis code chart .

Set to the 4WD-ECU. : Troubleshoot the 4WD. Refer to GROUP 27C - Troubleshooting .

Set to the ABS-ECU. : Troubleshoot the ABS. Refer to GROUP 35B - Troubleshooting .

Set to the ASC-ECU. : Troubleshoot the ASC. Refer to GROUP 35C - Troubleshooting .

Set to the ACC/FCM-ECU. : Troubleshoot the ACC. Refer to GROUP 17 - Troubleshooting .

Set to the AS&G-ECU. : Troubleshoot the ACC. (Refer to GROUP 17 - Diagnosis Code Chart <M/T> or <CVT>).

Set to the EPS-ECU. : Troubleshoot the EPS. Refer to GROUP 37 - Troubleshooting .

Set to the WCM. : Troubleshoot the WCM. Refer to GROUP 42A - Troubleshooting .

Set to the KOS-ECU. : Troubleshoot the KOS. Refer to GROUP 42B - Troubleshooting .

Set to the OSS-ECU. : Troubleshoot the OSS. Refer to GROUP 42B - Troubleshooting .

Set to the SRS-ECU. : Troubleshoot the SRS. Refer to GROUP 52B - Troubleshooting.

Set to the ETACS-ECU. : Troubleshoot the ETACS-ECU. Refer to .

Set to the heater controller assembly (A/C-ECU). : Troubleshoot the A/C. Refer to GROUP 55 - Troubleshooting .

Set to the LDW-ECU. : Troubleshoot the LDW. Refer to .

The diagnosis code is not set. : Go to Step 4.

STEP 4. M.U.T.-III Special Function

Using M.U.T.-III, select "Test" from the special function of the combination meter. Execute the following item to check the liquid crystal display.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 5.

Replace the combination meter.

STEP 5. Retest the system

Check that display lamps or warning lamps are illuminated normally, or multi-information display is displayed normally.

Q. Is the check result normal?

The trouble can be an intermittent malfunction (Refer to GROUP 00 - How to use Troubleshooting/inspection Service Points - How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunction ).

Replace the combination meter.
