WARNING NOTIFICATION FUNCTION
Before performing inspections or repairs which may cause warning messages to be displayed or DTCs to be stored, such as a simulation test or road test, it is necessary to activate warning notification restraint mode so that the G-BOOK center does not recognize the warnings as real ones.
Warning notification restraint mode can be entered by using the GTS or operating the remote touch.
The warning notification function sends a warning on signal, received from the combination meter assembly via CAN communication, to the G-BOOK center using the G-BOOK device if a warning message is displayed due to a malfunction.
Activate warning notification restraint mode
To cancel warning notification restraint mode, turn the engine switch off and on (IG) to display the service mode screen and cancel warning notification restraint mode.
Activate warning notification restraint mode (Using the GTS)
Connect the GTS to the DLC3.
Start the engine.
Turn the GTS on.
Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Trouble Codes.
Activate warning notification restraint mode (Using the remote touch)
Enter navigation system diagnostic mode.
STRICT PROHIBITION OF MANUAL EMERGENCY CALL USING EMERGENCY CALL SERVICE
Do not make emergency calls in non-emergency situations. When performing an inspection, use the manual maintenance check.
If the emergency call service is used to connect to the G-BOOK center in a non-emergency situation, an unnecessary workload will be generated at the G-BOOK center. This may cause a delayed response by the G-BOOK center to other emergency calls.
If emergency vehicles are dispatched due to an accidental operation of the emergency call switch, you may be charged or punished according to local law.
If the emergency call switch is accidentally operated:
Contact the G-BOOK center to tell them that the call was made by mistake.
An emergency call cannot be halted or finished from the vehicle. Only the G-BOOK center can halt or finish an emergency call.
If the G-BOOK center cannot be informed that the emergency call was made by mistake, the center will report an emergency to authorities, emergency facilities and dealerships in compliance with its agreements. As a result, emergency vehicles may be dispatched.
PRECAUTION FOR TELEMATICS SYSTEM
If an additional device such as a theft deterrent or OBD monitoring device is connected to the DLC3, some functions may not operate correctly.
PRECAUTION FOR G-BOOK
If replacing any of the following parts, refer to Initialization of Repair Instruction.
Radio receiver assembly
ID code BOX (immobilizer code ECU)
Certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly)
When replacing the radio receiver assembly, it is not necessary to cancel the G-BOOK contract. (If canceled a new G-BOOK contract needs to be created after replacement.)
On this model, the radio receiver assembly functions as the G-BOOK device and has the G-BOOK ID.
INSPECTION PROCEDURE FOR TELEMATICS TRANSCEIVER (DATA COMMUNICATION MODULE (DCM))
The telematics transceiver uses a CDMA2000 1X type radio wave signal. The radio wave signals and communication lines may occasionally be unstable due to factors such as time of day or location. Therefore, network access errors may occur intermittently due to radio wave signal conditions. To determine if there is a problem, it may be necessary to make a judgment based on the frequency of the phenomenon or by comparing the condition with a comparable type of cell phone.
The radio receiver assembly and the telematics transceiver have a one-to-one relationship on the registered telematics system. Therefore, if the radio receiver assembly or telematics transceiver is replaced, the network cannot be accessed unless Vehicle Contract Setting is performed. Use of a substitute component is also not possible to confirm network access.
Disassembly of the telematics transceiver cannot be performed (the case cannot be opened). If the telematics transceiver malfunctions, replace it.
PRECAUTIONS FOR EMERGENCY CALL SERVICE
Depending on the troubleshooting method, a manual maintenance check may be performed.
Communication charges are not incurred for the manual maintenance check because the telematics transceiver is used for communication (communication charges are included in subscription cost of the G-BOOK service).
The telematics transceiver functions as the emergency call service device and has the mayday ID.
PRECAUTION FOR MAYDAY BATTERY
If an automatic emergency call is performed, the mayday battery must be replaced with a new one.
AUTOMATIC MAINTENANCE CHECK FOR EMERGENCY CALL SERVICE
The emergency call system regularly performs an automatic maintenance check and communication test with the G-BOOK center so that the emergency call service can always function correctly. It is not necessary to perform any specific operations to initiate an automatic maintenance check.
The automatic maintenance check ends 1 to 2 minutes after it starts.
During the automatic maintenance check, telephone calls and network access are not possible using the telematics system. In this case, wait several minutes before trying again.
If communication is interrupted for some reason after the automatic maintenance check has started, the automatic maintenance check will resume the next time the engine switch is turned on (ACC).
There are no communication charges incurred for the manual and automatic maintenance check because the telematics transceiver is used for communication (communication charges are included in subscription cost of the G-BOOK service).
IF AN EMERGENCY CALL CANNOT BE MADE
The emergency call service may not be available, or the call quality may deteriorate in the following cases. (For details, refer to the terms of service and operation manual for the device.)
|Communication is interrupted due to malfunctions of the G-BOOK device or any other related device.||The G-BOOK device does not operate normally, such as when the device is damaged or malfunctioning due to an impact caused by a collision.|
|Communication is interrupted due to a G-BOOK center system error.||
|Communication is interrupted due to the network used for the emergency call system.*||
|The G-BOOK center system cannot determine the vehicle location.||
*: Even when the vehicle is within the cellular phone service area, it may be difficult to make emergency phone calls due to radio wave signal conditions or busy lines. In this case, it may not be possible to access the G-BOOK center. As a result, no calls can be made to ask for rescue in the event of a traffic accident. If emergency calls cannot be made, use a landline telephone or cellular phone.
ALARM NOTIFICATION FUNCTION
If the theft deterrent system is activated, the G-BOOK center makes a phone call to the customer.
When servicing the vehicle, make sure that the vehicle does not experience any conditions that could cause a telephone call to be made by a G-BOOK operator.
Before performing inspections or repairs which may activate the alarm notification function, be sure to inform the customer that they may receive a telephone call from a G-BOOK operator.
The alarm notifications can be canceled on the multi-display screen.
