DYNAMIC TORQUE CONTROL 4WD/AWD SYSTEM TC and CG Terminal Circuit

DTC Code DTC Name
TC and CG Terminal Circuit

DESCRIPTION

for Segment Display Type:

Connecting terminals TC and CG of the DLC3 causes the 4WD ECU assembly to display 2-digit DTCs by flashing the 4WD/AWD warning light.

for Dot Display Type:

Connecting terminals TC and CG of the DLC3 causes the 4WD ECU assembly to display a DTC on the multi-information display.

Tip:

When each warning light remains blinking, a short to ground in the wiring of terminal TC of the DLC3 or an internal short to ground in each ECU is suspected.
