METER / GAUGE SYSTEM Tachometer Malfunction

DESCRIPTION

In this circuit, the meter ECU receives engine speed signals from the ECM using the CAN communication system. The meter ECU displays the engine speed calculated based on the data received from the ECM.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK CAN COMMUNICATION SYSTEM


    1. Check if a CAN communication DTC is output Click here.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      CAN communication DTC is not output. A
      CAN communication DTC is output. B

    B
    A
  2. PERFORM ACTIVE TEST USING TECHSTREAM (TACHO METER OPERATION)


    1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Turn the Techstream on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Body Electrical / Combination Meter / Active Test.

    5. Check the operation by referring to the table below.

    OK
  3. CHECK SFI SYSTEM


    1. Check if the SFI system output the DTC Click here for 2AR-FE, Click here for 2GR-FE).

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      The DTC is not output. A
      The DTC is output (for 2AR-FE). B
      The DTC is output (for 2GR-FE). C

  4. READ VALUE USING TECHSTREAM (ENGINE RPM, ENGINE SPEED)


    1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Turn the Techstream on.

    4. Enter the following menus:


      1. for Engine and ECT: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List.

      2. for Combination Meter: Body Electrical / Combination Meter / Data List.

    5. Check the values by referring to the table below.

      Tester Display Measurement Item/Range Normal Condition Diagnostic Note
      Engine Rpm Engine speed/Min.: 0 rpm, Max.: 12750 rpm
      • 610 to 710 rpm: Idling (for 2AR-FE)

      • 600 to 700 rpm: Idling (for 2GR-FE)

      Tester Display Measurement Item/Range Normal Condition Diagnostic Note
      Engine Speed Engine speed/Min.: 0 rpm, Max.: 16383 rpm
      • 610 to 710 rpm: Idling (for 2AR-FE)

      • 600 to 700 rpm: Idling (for 2GR-FE)


      • Stored as Freeze Frame Data

      • When the crankshaft position sensor is malfunctioning, "Engine Speed" is approximately 0 rpm or varies greatly from the actual engine speed.

      Results of real-vehicle check:

      Idling (warm up the engine and A/C off): 660 rpm

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      The Data List values of the ECUs match. A
      The Data List values of the ECUs do not match (for 2AR-FE). B
      The Data List values of the ECUs do not match (for 2GR-FE). C

      Tech Tips


      • When the Data List values of the ECUs match, an internal malfunction of the combination meter assembly is suspected.

      • When the Data List values of the ECUs do not match, a signal output error of the ECM or an internal malfunction of the combination meter assembly is suspected
