  • If the correct procedures are not followed according to the instructions in this manual, there is a danger of electric shock from the high voltage circuits.

  • B006JFB

    Be sure to wear insulating gloves when working on high voltage wiring or components.

  • If work is performed without wearing insulating gloves, there is a danger of electric shock.

PROCEDURE


  1. PRECAUTION

    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.

      CAUTION:


      • A01MK0R

        Before installing or removing any components of the high voltage system, make sure to check the DTCs and confirm that P0AA6 (High Voltage System Insulation Malfunction) has not been output. If it has been output, perform troubleshooting for that DTC first.

      • If DTC check and troubleshooting are not performed, there is a danger of electric shock due to current leakage.

    1. A01MGEY

      Remove the 2 nuts and No. 8 EV battery shield panel from the EV battery.

  9. REMOVE SERVICE PLUG GRIP (for EV)

    CAUTION:


    • Wear insulated gloves.

    • B006JM4

      Do not inspect or repair high voltage system wiring or components without removing the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip.

    • If work is performed while the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip are still installed, high voltage circuits will still be connected and there is a risk of electric shock.

    • A01MI7PC06
      *a Without waiting for 10 minutes

      After removing both the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip, wait for 10 minutes before touching any high voltage connectors or terminals.

    • If work is performed without waiting for 10 minutes, there is a risk of electric shock due to residual charge in the high voltage capacitors inside the inverter with converter assembly and FC converter assembly.

    • B006JBZ

      Put the removed service plug grip (for EV) in your pocket and carry it with you, and place a "HIGH VOLTAGE WORK IN PROGRESS. DO NOT TOUCH." sign on the FC stack service plug grip, in order to prevent other technicians from accidentally reconnecting the power while work is in progress.

    • If work is performed while the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip are still installed, high voltage circuits will still be connected and there is a risk of electric shock.

    Note


    • If the system is set to READY ON while the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip are removed, a malfunction may occur. Do not set the vehicle to READY ON unless specifically instructed to do so by the repair manual.

    • Do not touch the connection terminal of the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip.

    • If the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip has been struck or dropped, replace it.

    Tech Tips


    • The order in which the service plug grip (for EV) and FC stack service plug grip are removed does not matter.

    • The 10 minute wait is to allow the high voltage capacitors insidethe inverter with converter assembly and FC converter assembly to discharge.


    1. To prevent contamination by foreign matter or water droplets, check that the area around the service plug grip (for EV) has no foreign matter or water droplets, and clean away any foreign matter or water droplets found.

      Note

      Make sure that foreign matter does not enter other components.

    2. A01MIRMC02
      B006JEG Sliding Direction

      Slide the lever of the service plug grip (for EV) in the direction shown in the illustration until it contacts the stopper.

      Note

      The service plug grip (for EV) has an interlock connector, so slide it horizontally.

    3. A01MH7VC02
      B006JEG Rotating Direction

      Slowly rotate the lever of the service plug grip (for EV) in the direction shown in the illustration until it contacts the stopper.

      Note

      Do not excessively twist the lever of the service plug grip (for EV).

    4. A01MJYNC02
      B006JEG Pull Out

      Slowly pull the service plug grip (for EV) lever, remove the service plug grip (for EV) from the EV battery.

    5. A01MJ0RC02
      *a Protective Tape

      To prevent contamination by foreign matter or water droplets, cover the openings of the removed service plug grip (for EV) and EV battery with protective tapes.
