Section 10.6.1
Check Diagnostic Request Circuit

Perform the following steps to check the diagnostic request circuit:‪

  1. Turn ignition ON; engine not running.
  2. Plug in DDR.
  3. Select Switch/Light Status.
  4. Depress and hold diagnostic request switch.
  5. Observe the Diagnostic Request Status on the DDR.
    1. If the display reads ON, refer to "10.6.2 Check Stop Engine Light and Check Engine Light Bulbs" .
    2. If the display reads OFF, the diagnostic request line (#528) is open, or is not being grounded when the switch is depressed. Check the #528 wire and ground for diagnostic request switch. Repair the problem; refer to "10.6.4 Verify Repairs" .
    3. If no diagnostic request on the DDR input list, the ECM is not configured for diagnostic request operation. Refer to the DDEC Application and Installation manual, 7SA800.
