Vehicle-down Sensor (Service Code 31)
Vehicle-down Sensor Output Voltage Inspection
Remove the vehicle-down sensor.
Connect the measuring adapter [A] to the vehicle-down
sensor connectors as shown.
Special Tool - Measuring Adapter: 57001-1700
Main Harness [B]
Vehicle-down Sensor [C]
Connect a digital meter [D] to the measuring adapter
Vehicle-down Sensor Output Voltage
Connections to Adapter:
Digital Meter (+) → W (sensor Y/G) lead
Digital Meter (–) → BK (sensor G) lead
Hold the sensor vertically.
Measure the output voltage with the engine stopped, and
with the connector joined.
Turn the ignition switch on.
Tilt the sensor 60 ∼ 70° or more [A] right or left, then hold
the sensor almost vertical with the arrow mark pointed up
[B], and measure the output voltage.
With sensor tilted 60 ∼ 70° or more right or
left: DC 0.65 ∼ 1.35 V
With sensor arrow mark pointed up: DC
3.55 ∼ 4.45 V
Turn the ignition switch off.
If the reading is out of the standard, replace the sensor.
