Confirmation Driving Pattern

HINT:

• This confirmation driving pattern is used in the "PERFORM CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN" procedure of the following diagnostic troubleshooting procedure.

• Performing this confirmation pattern will activate the Heated Oxygen (HO2) sensor monitor. (The catalyst monitor is performed simultaneously.) This is very useful for verifying the completion of a repair.

NOTICE:

This test will not be completed if the vehicle is driven under absolutely constant speed, such as with cruise control activated.

(a) Connect an intelligent tester to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(c) Turn the tester or scan tool ON.

(e) If using an intelligent tester, select the following menu items: DIAGNOSIS / CARB OBD II / READINESS TESTS.

(f) Check that O2S EVAL is INCMPL (incomplete).

(g) Start the engine and warm it up.

(h) Drive the vehicle at between 40 mph and 70 mph (64 km/h and 113 km/h) for at least 10 minutes.

(i) Note the state of the Readiness Tests items. Those items will change to COMPL (complete) as O2S EVAL monitor operates.

(j) On the tester, select the following menu items: DIAGNOSIS / ENHANCED OBD II / DTC INFO /

PENDING CODES and check if any DTCs (any pending DTCs) are set.

HINT:

If O2S EVAL does not change to COMPL, and any pending DTCs fail to set, extend the driving time. HINT:

Intelligent tester only :

Malfunctioning areas can be identified by performing the A/F CONTROL function provided in the ACTIVE TEST. The A/F CONTROL function can help to determine whether the Air-Fuel Ratio (A/F) sensor, Heated Oxygen (HO2) sensor and other potential trouble areas are malfunctioning.

The following instructions describe how to conduct the A/F CONTROL operation using an intelligent tester.

(a)Connect an intelligent tester to the DLC3.

(b)Start the engine and turn the tester ON.

(c)Warm up the engine at an engine speed of 2,500 rpm for approximately 90 seconds.

(d)On the tester, select the following menu items: DIAGNOSIS / ENHANCED OBD II / ACTIVE TEST / A/ F CONTROL.

(e)Perform the A/F CONTROL operation with the engine in an idling condition (press the RIGHT or LEFT button to change the fuel injection volume).

(f) Monitor the voltage outputs of the A/F and HO2 sensors (AFS B1S1 and OS2 B1S2) displayed on the tester.

HINT:

• The A/F CONTROL operation lowers the fuel injection volume by 12.5 % or increases the injection volume by 25 %.

• Each sensor reacts in accordance with increases and decreases in the fuel injection volume. Standard Voltage
