Diagnosis Item 13: Diagnose when the M.U.T.-III cannot receive the data sent by 4WD-ECU <4WD>.

caution When servicing a CAN bus line, earth yourself by touching a metal object such as an unpainted water pipe. If you fail to do, a component connected to the CAN bus line may be broken.


The diagnostic result demonstrates that "the M.U.T.-III cannot receive the sent data from the 4WD-ECU" when the M.U.T.-III checks the periodically sent data from each ECU and cannot receive the 4WD-ECU data only.


M.U.T.-III judges the trouble when the periodically sent data from 4WD-ECU cannot be received.



STEP 1. Connector check: joint connector (CAN-3) and 4WD-ECU connector

caution The strand end of the twist wire should be within 10 cm from the connector. For details refer to .
When checking the joint connector, ensure that its wiring harness side and its short pins are not damaged.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 2.
Repair the defective connector. Replace the joint connector as necessary.

STEP 2. Resistance measurement at joint connector (CAN3) and 4WD-ECU connector.

caution A digital multimeter should be used. For details refer to .
caution The test wiring harness should be used. For details refer to .
(1)Disconnect joint connector (CAN3) and the 4WD-ECU connector, and measure at the wiring harness side.
(2)Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK (OFF) position.
caution When measuring the resistance, disconnect the negative battery terminal. For details refer to .
Ensure that the negative battery terminal is disconnected.
(4)Continuity between joint connector (CAN3) terminal No.5 and 4WD-ECU connector terminal No.5
OK: Continuity (2 Ω or less)
(5)Continuity between joint connector (CAN3) terminal No.16 and 4WD-ECU connector terminal No.13
OK: Continuity (2 Ω or less)

Q. Is the check result normal?

<All the resistances measure 2 Ω or less> Power supply to the 4WD-ECU may be suspected. Diagnose the electronic control 4WD. Refer to GROUP 27C - Troubleshooting .
NO : <Either or all of the resistances measure more than 2 Ω> Check the intermediate connector, and repair if necessary. If the intermediate connector is in good condition, repair the wiring harness between joint connector (CAN3) and the 4WD-ECU connector.
