DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION <EXCEPT PHEV>


The diagnosis function retrieves diagnosis code and data list by M.U.T.-III and enables the performance of the actuator test.

note If a diagnosis code is stored, the "status indication by diagnosis code" informs users whether a mechanical problem currently exists (current trouble) or whether it existed before but normal operation has been restored (past trouble).

HOW TO READ DIAGNOSIS CODE


caution Before connecting or disconnecting the M.U.T.-III, turn the ignition switch to the "LOCK" (OFF) position.

Connect the M.U.T.-III to the 16-pin diagnosis connector, and read the diagnosis code.
