WIPER AND WASHER SYSTEM Speed Signal Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The windshield wiper relay assembly receives a vehicle speed signal from the combination meter assembly to control the automatic windshield wiper system.

A voltage of 12 V or 5 V is output from the combination meter assembly and then input to the skid control ECU.

A voltage of 12 V or 5 V is output from each ECU or relay and then input to the combination meter assembly.

The signal is changed to a pulse signal at the transistor in the combination meter assembly.

Each ECU controls the respective system based on the pulse signal.

If a short occurs in any of the ECUs or in the wire harness connected to an ECU, all systems in the following diagram will not operate normally.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

PROCEDURE


  1. INSPECT COMBINATION METER ASSEMBLY (SPEED SENSOR SIGNAL)


    1. A01G8RIE12
      Text in Illustration
      *a

      Component with harness connected

      (Combination Meter Assembly)

      Check the output waveform.


      1. Remove the combination meter assembly with the connector still connected.

      2. Connect an oscilloscope to terminal H14-19 (+S) and body ground.

      3. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

      4. Turn a wheel slowly.

      5. Check the signal waveform according to the condition(s) in the table below.

        Item Condition
        Tool setting 5 V/DIV., 20 ms./DIV.
        Vehicle condition Wheel being rotated
        OK
        The waveform is similar to that shown in the illustration.

        Tech Tips

        When the system is functioning normally, one wheel revolution generates 4 pulses. As the vehicle speed increases, the width indicated by (A) in the illustration narrows.

    OK
  2. CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (WINDSHIELD WIPER RELAY ASSEMBLY - COMBINATION METER ASSEMBLY)


    1. Disconnect the H51 windshield wiper relay assembly connector and H14 combination meter assembly connector.

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

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      H51-24 (SPD) - H14-19 (+S) Always Below 1 Ω

    NG
    OK
