Inspection

Warning

  • Be sure to read and follow the "General Safety Information and Caution" before doing any work related with the high voltage system. Failure to follow the safety
    instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.
  • Be sure to read and follow the "High Voltage Shut-off Procedures" before doing any work related with the high voltage system. Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.
  1. Turn OFF the ignition switch and disconnect the (-) cable on the auxiliary battery (12V).
  2. Connect the KDS to the self-diagnosis connector (DLC).
  3. Turn ON the ignition switch.
  4. Use the KDS device to perform forced operation.
  5. Use a multimeter to ensure that the cooling fan is powered.
  • Cooling fan B+ : cooling fan connector (4) pin
  • Cooling fan ground : cooling fan connector (8) pin
  1. Check the fan motor speed in the GSD device service data.

Specification : Refer to "Specification"

Warning

  • When checking the power supply of the cooling fan, check measure using the of the cooling fan connector (A).
