PROBABLE CAUSES




DIAGNOSIS PROCEDURE


STEP 1. Check valve lift control motor relay itself.



  • Valve lift control motor relay connector check.
  • Check valve lift control motor relay itself (Refer to ).

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 2.
Repair or replace the connector, or replace the valve lift control motor relay.

STEP 2. Perform resistance measurement at valve lift ECU connector.



  • Disconnect connector, and measure at harness side.
  • Resistance between terminal GND and body earth.
OK: Continuity (2 Ω or less)

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 3.

    Repair or replace the connector, or check and repair harness between valve lift ECU connector terminal GND and body earth.

    • Check power supply line for open/short circuit.

STEP 3. Perform voltage measurement at valve lift control motor relay connector.



  • Remove relay, and measure at relay box side.
  • Voltage between terminal power supply line and body earth.
OK: System voltage

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 4.

    Repair or replace the connector, or check and repair harness between valve lift control motor relay connector terminal and battery.

    • Check power supply line for open/short circuit.

STEP 4. Perform voltage measurement at engine-ECU connector.



  • Disconnect connector, and measure at harness side.
  • Voltage between terminal VLCR and body earth
OK: System voltage

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 5.

    Repair or replace the connector, or check and repair harness between valve lift control motor relay connector terminal and engine-ECU connector terminal VLCR.

    • Check signal line for open/short circuit.

STEP 5. Perform voltage measurement at valve lift ECU connector.



  • Disconnect connector, and measure at harness side.
  • Short-circuit engine-ECU connector terminal VLCR to the body earth.
  • Voltage between terminal BATM and body earth.
OK: System voltage

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 8.
Go to Step 6.

STEP 6. Check harness between valve lift control motor relay connector terminal and valve lift ECU connector terminal BATM.



  • Check output line for open/short circuit.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 7.
Repair or replace the connector, or repair the damaged harness wire.

STEP 7. Check harness between valve lift control motor relay connector terminal and Engine-ECU connector terminal VLCR.



  • Check signal line for damage.

Q. Is the check result normal?


    Repair or replace the connector, or check and repair harness between valve lift control motor relay connector terminal and battery.

    • Check power supply line for damage.
Repair or replace the connector, or repair the damaged harness wire.

STEP 8. Check harness between valve lift control motor relay connector terminal and valve lift ECU connector terminal BATM.



  • Check power supply line for damage.

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 9.
Repair or replace the connector, or repair the damaged harness wire.

STEP 9. Check harness between valve lift control motor relay connector terminal and battery



  • Check power supply line for damage.

Q. Is the check result normal?


    Go to Step 10.
Repair or replace the connector, or repair the damaged harness wire.

STEP 10. Perform voltage measurement at engine-ECU connector



  • Disconnect engine-ECU connector, and connect special tool power plant ECU check harness (MB992110) to measure at connector for inspection.
  • Voltage between terminal VLCR and body earth.
OK:
System voltage [ignition switch: "LOCK" (OFF) ]
1 V or less (ignition switch: ON)

Q. Is the check result normal?

Go to Step 12.
Go to Step 11.

STEP 11. M.U.T.-III diagnosis code



  • Reconfirmation of diagnosis code.

Q. Is diagnosis code set?

Replace the engine-ECU.
Intermittent malfunction (Refer to GROUP 00 - How to Use Troubleshooting/Inspection Service Points - How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunctions ).

STEP 12. M.U.T.-III diagnosis code



  • Reconfirmation of diagnosis code.

Q. Is diagnosis code set?

Replace the valve lift ECU.
Intermittent malfunction (Refer to GROUP 00 - How to Use Troubleshooting/Inspection Service Points - How to Cope with Intermittent Malfunctions ).
