STOP AND START SYSTEM CHECK MODE PROCEDURE
Compared to normal mode, check mode is more sensitive to malfunctions. Therefore, check mode can detect malfunctions that cannot be detected in normal mode.
All the stored DTCs and freeze frame data are cleared if: 1) the engine stop and start ECU is switched from normal mode to check mode or vice versa; or 2) the ignition switch is turned from ON to ACC or off while in check mode. Before changing modes, always check for and note any DTCs and freeze frame data.
