ECD SYSTEM Starter Signal Circuit

DTC Code DTC Name
Starter Signal Circuit

DESCRIPTION

While the engine is being cranked, current flows from terminal ST2 of the ignition or starter switch assembly*1 or terminal STAR of the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly)*2 to the clutch start switch assembly and to terminal STA of the ECM (STA signal).
