    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to the next step.
  4. Measure the resistance between pin 13 of the CPC connector #3 (21–pin) and pin 1 of the VSS sensor.
    1. If the resistance greater than 3 Ω, replace the VSS. Refer to "23.2.1.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short in the harness between pins 13 and 14 of the CPC connector #3 (21–pin). Refer to "23.2.1.1 Verify Repairs" .

Section 21.2.1
Verify Repairs

Verify repairs as follows:‪

  1. Turn ignition OFF.
  2. Reconnect any electrical connections that were disconnected to perform the diagnosis.
  3. Clear codes with DDDL 7.0 or latest version.
  4. Start and bring engine up to operating temperature (over 140°F/60°C).
  5. Verify operation is satisfactory and no warning lamps illuminate. If warning lamps illuminate, troubleshoot the codes. If assistance is required, call the Detroit Diesel Customer Support Center at 313–592–5800.
