CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

CAUTION:


  • If the battery cover is removed, install it before turning the power switch on (IG) or (READY). If the power switch is turned on (IG) or (READY) with the battery cover removed, U029A-123 may be set.

  • Before inspecting the high-voltage system, take safety precautions to prevent electrical shocks, such as wearing insulated gloves and removing the service plug grip. After removing the service plug grip, put it in your pocket to prevent other technicians from accidentally reconnecting it while you are working on the high-voltage system.

  • After removing the service plug grip, wait for at least 10 minutes before touching any of the high-voltage connectors or terminals. After waiting for 10 minutes, check the voltage at the terminals in the inspection point in the inverter with converter assembly. The voltage should be 0 V before beginning work Click here.

Tech Tips

Waiting for at least 10 minutes is required to discharge the high-voltage capacitor inside the inverter with converter assembly.

Note

After turning the power switch off, waiting time may be required before disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal. Therefore, make sure to read the disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal notices before proceeding with work Click here.

      Component with harness connected

      (Battery Smart Unit)

      Measure the voltage according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Voltage
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      i1-4 (IGCT) - i1-8 (GND) Power switch on (IG) 11 to 14 V

      Note

      Turning the power switch on (IG) with the service plug grip removed causes an interlock switch system DTC (P0A0D-350) to be set. Use the intelligent tester to clear the DTCs Click here.

      Tech Tips

      As there might be an intermittent malfunction in the battery smart unit power source circuit, inspect the following even if the measured voltage is as specified:


      • Installation condition of fuse(s) (before removing fuse(s)) (IGCT circuit)

      • Fuse condition (before and after removing fuse(s)) (IGCT circuit)

      • Connection condition of connectors (IGCT circuit)

      • Wire harness condition (IGCT circuit)

      • Wire harness condition (GND circuit)

    5. Turn the power switch off.

    6. Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal.
