DETAILED FLOW

1.GET INFORMATION FOR SYMPTOM

  1. Get detailed information from the customer about the symptom (the condition and the environment when the incident/malfunction occurs).
  2. Check operation condition of the function that is malfunctioning.

>> GO TO 2.

2.CHECK DTC

  1. Check DTC.
  2. Perform the following procedure if DTC is detected.
  1. Check related service bulletins for information.

Are any symptoms described and any DTC detected? Symptom is described, DTC is detected>>GO TO 3.

Symptom is described, DTC is not detected>>GO TO 4.

Symptom is not described, DTC is detected>>GO TO 5.

3.CONFIRM THE SYMPTOM

Try to confirm the symptom described by the customer.

Also study the normal operation and fail-safe related to the symptom.

Verify relation between the symptom and the condition when the symptom is detected.

>> GO TO 5.

4.CONFIRM THE SYMPTOM

Try to confirm the symptom described by the customer.

Verify relation between the symptom and the condition when the symptom is detected.

>> GO TO 6.

5.PERFORM DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

Perform DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE for the detected DTC, and then check that DTC is detected again. At this time, always connect CONSULT to the vehicle, and check self diagnostic results in real time.

If two or more DTCs are detected, refer to BCS-48, "DTC Inspection Priority Chart" and determine trouble diagnosis order

NOTE:

If the result of Component Function Check is NG, it is the same as the detection of DTC by DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE.

Is DTC detected? YES >> GO TO 7.

NO >> Check according to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".

6.DETECT MALFUNCTIONING SYSTEM BY SYMPTOM DIAGNOSIS

Detect malfunctioning system according to SYMPTOM DIAGNOSIS based on the confirmed symptom in step 4, and determine the trouble diagnosis order based on possible causes and symptom.

Is the symptom described? YES >> GO TO 7.

NO >> Monitor input data from related sensors or check voltage of related module terminals using CONSULT.

7.DETECT MALFUNCTIONING PART BY DIAGNOSIS PROCEDURE

Inspect according to Diagnosis Procedure of the system.

Is malfunctioning part detected? YES >> GO TO 8.

NO >> Check according to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".

8.REPAIR OR REPLACE THE MALFUNCTIONING PART

  1. Repair or replace the malfunctioning part.
  2. Reconnect parts or connectors disconnected during Diagnosis Procedure again after repair and replacement.
  3. Check DTC. If DTC is detected, erase it.

>> GO TO 9.

9.FINAL CHECK

When DTC is detected in step 2, perform DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE again, and then check that the malfunction is repaired securely.

When symptom is described by the customer, refer to confirmed symptom in step 3 or 4, and check that the symptom is not detected.

Is DTC detected and does symptom remain? YES-1 >> DTC is detected: GO TO 7.

YES-2 >> Symptom remains: GO TO 4.

NO >> Before returning the vehicle to the customer, always erase DTC.

ECM

ECM : Description

Performing the following procedure can automatically activate recommunication of ECM and BCM, but only when the ECM is replaced with a new one*.

*: New one means an ECM that has never been energized on-board.

(In this step, initialization procedure using CONSULT is not necessary)

NOTE:

ECM : Work Procedure

1.PERFORM ECM RECOMMUNICATING FUNCTION

  1. Install ECM.
  2. Contact backside of the registered Intelligent key* to push-button ignition switch while brake pedal is depressed, then turn ignition switch ON.

*: To perform this step, use the key that is used before performing ECM replacement.

  1. Maintain ignition switch in the ON position for at least 5 seconds.
  2. Turn ignition switch OFF
  3. Check that the engine starts.

>> GO TO 2.

2.PERFORM ADDITIONAL SERVICE WHEN REPLACING ECM

Perform additional service when replacing ECM. Refer to EC-135, "Work Procedure".

>> Inspection End

BCM

BCM : Description

BEFORE REPLACEMENT

When replacing BCM, save or print current vehicle specification with CONSULT configuration before replacement.

NOTE:

If “Before Replace ECU” cannot be used, use the “After Replace ECU” or “Manual Configuration” after replacing BCM.

AFTER REPLACEMENT

CAUTION:

BCM : Work Procedure

1.SAVING VEHICLE SPECIFICATION

Enter "Re/Programming, Configuration" and perform “Before Replace ECU” to CONSULT


Enter "Re/Programming, Configuration" and perform “Before Replace ECU” to save or print current vehicle specification.

NOTE:

If “Before Replace ECU” cannot be used, use the "After Replace ECU" or "Manual Configuration" after replacing BCM.

>> GO TO 2.

2.REPLACE BCM

Replace BCM. Refer to BCS-73, "Removal and Installation".

>> GO TO 3.

3.WRITING VEHICLE SPECIFICATION

CONSULT


  1. Enter "Re/Programming, Configuration".
  2. If “Before Replace ECU” operation was performed, automatically an "Operation Log Selection" screen will be displayed. Select the applicable file from the "Saved Data List" and press “Confirm” to write vehicle specification. Refer to BCS-60, "ADDITIONAL SERVICE WHEN REPLACING CONTROL UNIT (BCM) : Work Procedure".
  3. If “Before Replace ECU” operation was not performed, select "After Replace ECU" or "Manual Configuration" to write vehicle specification. Refer to BCS-60, "ADDITIONAL SERVICE WHEN REPLACING CONTROL UNIT (BCM) : Work Procedure".

>> GO TO 4.

4.INITIALIZE BCM (NATS)

Perform BCM initialization. (NATS) >> Work End.
