‹› Multimeter.

‹› Wiring diagram.

Test requirements

‹› The Speedometer (G21) OK.

‹›  The Motronic Engine Control Module (ECM) (J623) fuses OK.

‹› Battery voltage at least 12.5 volts.

Test procedure

-

Observe safety precautions. Refer to => [ Safety Precautions ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and Control Systems/Service
Precautions/Safety Precautions

-

Observe Clean Working Conditions. Refer to => [ Clean Working Conditions ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and Control
Systems/Service Precautions/Clean Working Conditions

-

Perform a preliminary check to verify the customers complaint. Refer to => [ Preliminary Check ] See: Powertrain Management/Computers and
Control Systems/Testing and Inspection/Scan Tool Testing and Procedures/Preliminary Check.

Function test

-

Connect the scan tool.

-

Perform a road test with a vehicle speed greater than 5 Km/h.

-

Using the scan tool, Check the vehicle speed:

-

Compare the vehicle speed on the scan tool to the Speedometer (G21).

Specified value: a difference of no greater than 10%.

If the specified value was not obtained or no speed was displayed: 

-

Check the wiring from the Motronic Engine Control Module (ECM) (J623) to the Instrument Cluster Control Module (J285) for an open circuit,
Short to Battery (+), or to ground.

-

Check the wiring connection for damage, corrosion, loose or broken terminals.

-

If necessary, repair the faulty wiring connection.

-

Assembly is performed in the reverse of the removal.
