NO >> GO TO 5

5.CHECK STEERING LOCK UNIT CIRCUIT-II

1. Check continuity between steering lock unit harness connector M32 (A) terminal 3 and IPDM E/R harness connector E18 (B) terminal 32.

2. Check continuity between steering lock unit harness connector M32 (A) terminal 3 and ground.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 6

NO >> Repair harness or connector.

6.CHECK INTERMITTENT INCIDENT

Refer to GI-42, "Intermittent Incident".

>> Inspection End.

7.CHECK BCM OUTPUT SIGNAL

1. Turn ignition switch OFF.

2. Disconnect steering lock unit harness connector and IPDM E/R harness connector E5.

3. Check voltage between steering lock unit harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 9

NO >> GO TO 8

8.CHECK STEERING LOCK UNIT CIRCUIT-I

1. Disconnect BCM harness connector M122.

2. Check continuity between BCM harness connector M19 (A) terminal 86 and steering lock unit harness connector M32 (B) terminal 8.

3. Check continuity between BCM harness connector M19 (A) terminal 86 and ground.

Is the inspection result normal?

YES >> GO TO 11

NO >> Repair harness or connector.

9.CHECK IPDM E/R OUTPUT SIGNAL

1. Connect IPDM E/R harness connector.

2. Disconnect BCM harness connector.

3. Check voltage between steering lock unit harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> Replace steering lock unit.

NO >> GO TO 10

10.CHECK STEERING LOCK UNIT CIRCUIT-II

1. Check continuity between steering lock unit harness connector M32 (A) terminal 8 and IPDM E/R harness connector E18 (B) terminal 33.

2. Check continuity between steering lock unit harness connector and ground.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 11

NO >> Repair harness or connector.

11.CHECK INTERMITTENT INCIDENT

Refer to GI-42, "Intermittent Incident".

>> Inspection End.
