Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK THROTTLE CONTROL MOTOR RELAY POWER SUPPLY

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Check the voltage between ECM harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> GO TO 2.

2.CHECK THROTTLE CONTROL MOTOR RELAY POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT

Disconnect ECM harness connector.

Disconnect IPDM E/R harness connector.

Check the continuity between ECM harness connector and IPDM E/R harness connector.


  1. Also check harness for short to ground.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Perform the trouble diagnosis for power supply circuit.

NO >> Repair or replace error-detected parts.

3.CHECK THROTTLE CONTROL MOTOR RELAY INPUT SIGNAL

Check the voltage between ECM harness connector and ground as per the following conditions.

Is the inspection result normal?


Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Check intermittent incident. Refer to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".

NO >> GO TO 4.

4.CHECK THROTTLE CONTROL MOTOR RELAY INPUT SIGNAL CIRCUIT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM harness connector.
  3. Disconnect IPDM E/R harness connector.
  4. Check the continuity between ECM harness connector and IPDM E/R harness connector.


  1. Also check harness for short to ground and to power.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Check intermittent incident. Refer to GI-39, "Intermittent Incident".
