Check as follows:‪

  1. Disconnect the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector.
  2. Inspect the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector for bent or spread pins, inspect the connector seal for damage (signs of water or oil intrusion).
    1. If the water or oil intrusion, bent or spread pins are found, repair as necessary. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If connector shows no signs of damage, go to the next step.
  3. Measure the resistance between pin 5 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground. If you are using J-48671–10 , measure between injector #1 pin 1 and ground.

    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, go to step 11 .
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to the next step.
  4. Remove the upper valve cover.
  5. Disconnect injector #1.
  6. Measure the resistance between pin 5 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground. If you are using J-48671–10 , measure between injector #1 pin 1 and ground.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace injector #1. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to the next step.
  7. Disconnect injector #2.
  8. Measure the resistance between pin 5 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground. If you are using J-48671–10 , measure between injector #2 pin 1 and ground.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace injector #2. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to the next step.
  9. Disconnect injector #3.
  10. Measure the resistance between pin 5 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground. If you are using J-48671–10 , measure between injector #3 pin 1 and ground.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace the #3 injector. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, replace the under valve cover injector harness. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" ..
  11. Disconnect the 120–pin MCM connector.
  12. Measure the resistance between pin 5 of the harness side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, go to the next step.
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short to ground between pin 13 of the MCM 120–pin connector and pin 5 of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
  13. Measure the resistance between pin 8 of the harness side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, go to the next step.
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short to ground between pin 14 of the MCM 120–pin connector and pin 8 of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
  14. Measure the resistance between pin 9 of the harness side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, go to the next step.
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short to ground between pin 10 of the MCM 120–pin connector and pin 9 of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector. Refer to "132.2.1 Verify Repairs" .
  15. Measure the resistance between pin 12 of the harness side of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector and ground.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace the MCM.
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short between pin 12 of the MCM 120–pin connector and pin 12 of the Front Injector Harness 14–pin connector.

Section 132.2.1
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.
    warning

    ENGINE EXHAUST

    To avoid injury from inhaling engine exhaust, always operate the engine in a well-ventilated area. Engine exhaust is toxic.‪

  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.
