NO >> GO TO 4.

4.CHECK SENSOR POWER SUPPLY CIRCUITS

Check harness for short to power and short to ground, between the following terminals.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 5.

NO >> Repair short to ground or short to power in harness or connectors.

5.CHECK COMPONENTS

Check the following.

• Crankshaft position sensor (POS) (Refer to EC-281, "Component Inspection".) • Refrigerant pressure sensor (Refer to EC-482, "Diagnosis Procedure".) • Tumble control valve position sensor (Refer to EC-410, "Diagnosis Procedure".) Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 6.

NO >> Replace malfunctioning component.

6.CHECK APP SENSOR

Refer to EC-429, "Component Inspection".

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

NO >> GO TO 7.

7.REPLACE ACCELERATOR PEDAL ASSEMBLY

1. Replace accelerator pedal assembly 2. Go to EC-29, "ACCELERATOR PEDAL RELEASED POSITION LEARNING : Special Repair Requirement".

>> INSPECTION END

8.CHECK EVAP CONTROL SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSOR

Refer to EC-318, "Component Inspection".

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

NO >> Replace EVAP control system pressure sensor.

9.CHECK INTERMITTENT INCIDENT

Refer to GI-42, "Intermittent Incident".

>> INSPECTION END

Component Inspection

1.CHECK EVAP CONTROL SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSOR

1. Turn ignition switch OFF.

2. Remove EVAP control system pressure sensor with its harness connector connected from EVAP canister.

Always replace O-ring with a new one.

3. Install a vacuum pump to EVAP control system pressure sensor.

4. Turn ignition switch ON and check output voltage between ECM harness connector and ground under the following conditions.

CAUTION: • Always calibrate the vacuum pump gauge when using it.

• Do not apply below -93.3 kPa (-0.952 kg/cm2, -13.53 psi) or pressure over 101.3 kPa (1.033 kg/ cm2, 14.69 psi).

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> INSPECTION END

NO >> Replace EVAP control system pressure sensor
