Tech Tips

Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. 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. READ VALUE USING INTELLIGENT TESTER (ACCELERATOR PEDAL POSITION SENSOR)


    1. A010PV7E02

      Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

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

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List / Accel Sens. No.1 Volt % and Accel Sens. No.2 Volt %.

    4. Read the values.

      Standard
      Accelerator Pedal Accel Sens. No.1 Volt % Accel Sens. No.2 Volt %
      Released 8 to 28% 51 to 86%
      Depressed 30 to 55% 73 to 98%

      Front view of wire harness connector

      (to ECM)

      Disconnect the accelerator pedal position sensor connector.

    2. Disconnect the ECM connector.

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

      Standard Resistance (Check for Open)
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      A2-1 (VCP2) - A40-57 (VCP2) Always Below 1 Ω
      A2-2 (EPA2) - A40-58 (EPA2) Always Below 1 Ω
      A2-3 (VPA2) - A40-54 (VPA2) Always Below 1 Ω
      A2-4 (VCPA) - A40-55 (VCPA) Always Below 1 Ω
      A2-5 (EPA) - A40-56 (EPA) Always Below 1 Ω
      A2-6 (VPA) - A40-53 (VPA) Always Below 1 Ω
      Standard Resistance (Check for Short)
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      A2-1 (VCP2) or A40-57 (VCP2) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      A2-2 (EPA2) or A40-58 (EPA2) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      A2-3 (VPA2) or A40-54 (VPA2) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      A2-4 (VCPA) or A40-55 (VCPA) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      A2-5 (EPA) or A40-56 (EPA) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
      A2-6 (VPA) or A40-53 (VPA) - Body ground Always 10 kΩ or higher
    4. Reconnect the accelerator pedal position sensor connector.

    5. Reconnect the ECM connector.
