CHARGING SYSTEM DIAGNOSIS WITH EXP-800 NI OR GR8-1200 NI

To test the charging system, use the following special service tools:

  • EXP-800 NI Battery and electrical diagnostic analyzer
  • GR8-1200 NI Multitasking battery and electrical diagnostic station

NOTE: Refer to the applicable Instruction Manual for proper charging system diagnosis procedures.

DETAILED FLOW

NOTE: To ensure a complete and thorough diagnosis, the battery, stater and generator test segments must be done as a set from start to finish.

1.PRELIMINARY INSPECTION

Perform the preliminary inspection. Refer to CHG "Diagnosis Procedure".

>> GO TO 2.

2.STOP POWER GENERATION VOLTAGE VARIABLE CONTROL SYSTEM

Stop the operation of the power generation voltage variable control in either of the following procedures.

  • After selecting "ENGINE" using CONSULT, set the DUTY value of "ALTERNATOR DUTY" to 0 % by selecting "ALTERNATOR DUTY" of "Active Test". Continue "Active Test" until the end of inspection. (When the DUTY value is 0 or 100 %, the normal power generation is performed according to the characteristic of the IC regulator of the generator.)
  • Turn the ignition switch OFF, and disconnect the battery current sensor connector. [However, DTC (P1550- P1554) of the engine might remain. After finishing the inspection, connect the battery current sensor connector and erase the self diagnosis results history of the engine using CONSULT.]

>> GO TO 3.

3.DIAGNOSIS WITH EXP-800 NI OR GR8-1200 NI

Perform the charging system test using Multitasking battery and electrical diagnostic station GR8-1200 NI or Battery and electrical diagnostic analyzer EXP-800 NI. Refer to the applicable Instruction Manual for proper testing procedures.
