METER / GAUGE SYSTEM Engine Oil Level Sensor Circuit

DESCRIPTION

The combination meter assembly and engine oil level sensor are connected via direct line. The combination meter assembly determines the engine oil level based on the engine oil level sensor ON/OFF signal.

Tech Tips

As the engine oil level may be unstable when the engine is cold or running at high speeds, the combination meter assembly receives the coolant temperature signal and engine speed signal from the ECM via CAN communication in order to prevent the oil level warnings from being output erroneously.

  2. CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (ENGINE OIL LEVEL SENSOR - COMBINATION METER ASSEMBLY)


    1. Disconnect the G34 combination meter assembly connector.

    2. Disconnect the D24*1, *2 or D25*3 engine oil level sensor connector.


      • *1: for 8GR-FKS

      • *2: for V35A-FTS, 2WD

      • *3: for V35A-FTS, AWD

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

      Standard Resistance
