    1. If measured resistance between pins A and B is greater than 100 Ω, or open, go to step 3 .
    2. If measured resistance between pins A and B is less than 100 Ω, the signal line (#432) is shorted to the return line (#452). Repair the short. Refer to "34.3.11 Verify Repairs" .
  3. Also measure resistance between socket B and a good ground.
    1. If measured resistance between socket B and a good ground is greater than 100 Ω, or open, refer to "34.3.7 Check ECM Connectors" .
    2. If measured resistance between socket B and a good ground is less than 100 Ω, the signal line (#432) is shorted to the battery ground. Repair the short and refer to "34.3.11 Verify Repairs" .

Section 34.3.7
Check ECM Connectors

Perform the following steps to check the ECM connectors.‪

  1. Check terminals at the ECM harness connector (both ECM and harness side) for damage: bent, corroded, and unseated pins or sockets. See Figure "Engine Harness Connector to Turbo Boost Sensor" .
