System Wiring Diagram

Determination Procedure

CAUTION:

  • When disconnecting the connector, verify that there is no looseness, damage, deformation, corrosion, or poor connection of the connector terminals.

  • When inspecting the DLC-2, touch it with a paper clip or similar thin pin without directly inserting a tester into the terminals.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable before performing any work that requires handling of connectors.
