Component function check

1.Combination meter input signal

  1. Select meter/m&a on consult.
  2. Using FUEL METER of DATA MONITOR, compare the value of DATA MONITOR with fuel gauge pointer of combination meter.

Does the data monitor value approximately match the fuel gauge indication?


Does the data monitor value approximately match the fuel gauge indication? YES >> Inspection End.

NO >> Replace combination meter. Refer to MWI-77, "Removal and Installation".

Diagnosis procedure

Regarding wiring diagram information, refer to mwi-28, "wiring diagram".

1.Check fuel level sensor circuit

  1. Turn ignition switch off.
  2. Disconnect combination meter connector and fuel level sensor unit connector.
  3. Check continuity between combination meter harness connector and fuel level sensor unit harness connector.


  1. Check continuity between combination meter harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal?
