HINT:

• Monitor test results can be viewed in the MONITOR RESULT screen.

• Monitor test results indicate the latest malfunction judgement result of this diagnostic.

• TEST VALUE indicates the detection parameter value (Example: P0128 Thermostat Malfunction = Engine coolant temperature) at the time of malfunction (or normal) judgement is done.

• TEST LIMIT indicates a threshold of malfunction judgement (Example: P0128 Thermostat Malfunction = 75°C).

• When the monitor runs, the monitored Parameter's VALUE is recorded. The value is then compared to the TEST LIMIT to determine if the result is PASS or FAIL.

• By comparing the Parameter VALUE to the TEST LIMIT, it is possible to determine the degree of failure.

• In rare cases, the monitor may have passed even with a DTC set and MIL illuminated. The monitor may have failed on a previous trip, and then passed on the most recent trip. This would indicated an intermittent problem may be the cause of the DTC.
