Tech Tips

Read freeze frame data using the GTS. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK DTC OUTPUT


    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the GTS on.

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Trouble Codes.

    4. Record any output DTC(s).


      Powertrain > Engine and ECT > Trouble Codes
    5. Clear the DTCs.


      Powertrain > Engine and ECT > Clear DTCs
    6. Turn the ignition switch off for 30 seconds or more.

    7. Disconnect the camshaft position sensor connector.

    8. Turn the ignition switch to ON for 4 seconds or more.

    9. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Trouble Codes.

    10. Check whether the DTC changes when the connector is disconnected and connected.

      Component with harness connected

      (ECM)

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

      Standard Voltage
      Tester Connection Switch Condition Specified Condition
      C60-17 (VCG) - C60-18 (G2-) Ignition switch ON 4.5 to 5.5 V
      Result
      Proceed to
      OK

    NG
    OK
  3. CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR - ECM)


    1. Disconnect the camshaft position sensor connector.

    2. Disconnect the ECM connector.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      C80-1 (G22+) - C60-27 (G2+) Always Below 1 Ω
      C80-2 (G22-) - C60-18 (G2-) Always Below 1 Ω
      C80-1 (G22+) or C60-27 (G2+) - Body ground and other terminals Always 10 kΩ or higher
      C80-2 (G22-) or C60-18 (G2-) - Body ground and other terminals Always 10 kΩ or higher
