Diagnosis Procedure

1.PERFORM COMBINATION METER SELF-DIAGNOSIS

Perform combination meter self-diagnosis.

Is any error system detected? YES >> Check the error system.

NO >> GO TO 2.

2.CHECK HARNESS BETWEEN COMBINATION METER AND POWER STEERING CONTROL UNIT

1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

2. Disconnect combination meter harness connector.

3. Disconnect power steering control unit harness connector.

4. Check continuity between combination meter harness connector M24 (A) terminal 30 and power steering control unit harness connector M59 (B) terminal 8.
