GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION

TIPS AND PRECAUTIONS

Before Troubleshooting

1. Check applicable fuses in the appropriate fuse/relay box.

2. Check the battery for damage, state of charge, and clean and tight connections.

Handling Connectors

Make sure the connectors are clean and have no loose wire terminals.

Make sure multiple cavity connectors are packed with dielectric grease (except watertight
connectors).

All connectors have push-down release type locks (A).

NOTE:

Do not quick-charge a battery unless the battery ground cable has
been disconnected, otherwise you will damage the alternator
diodes.

Do not attempt to crank the engine with the battery ground cable
loosely connected or you will severely damage the wiring.

Some connectors have a clip on their side used to attach them to a mount bracket on the body or on
another component. This clip has a pull type lock.

Some mounted connectors cannot be disconnected unless you first release the lock and remove the
connector from its mount bracket (A).

holes, and from exposed screws and bolts.
