174 03 – Supply Fuel Temperature Sensor Open Circuit

Perform the following steps to troubleshoot an SFT sensor open circuit fault:‪

  1. If faults 174 03 and 175 03 are active at the same time, refer to "16.2.1 175 03 – Engine Oil Temperature Open Circuit" .
  2. If faults 174 03 and 175 03 are not active at the same time, go to step 3 .
  3. Bridge pins 1 and 2 of the SFT sensor.
    1. If fault 174 04 is the only active fault after bridging pins, replace SFT sensor. Erase fault code memory.
    2. If fault 174 04 is not the only active fault after bridging pins, go to step 4 .
  4. Bridge pin 1 of the SFT sensor connector to ground. See Figure "Supply Fuel Temperature Sensor Connector" .

174 04 – Supply Fuel Temperature Sensor Short to Ground

Perform the following steps to troubleshoot an SFT sensor short-to-ground fault.‪

  1. Unplug the SFT sensor connector.
    1. If new fault 174 03 is active after the connector is unplugged, refer to "15.2.2.1 Required Action" .
    2. If new fault 174 03 is not active after the connector is unplugged, go to step 2 .
  2. Check the resistance between pin 1 of the SFT sensor and ground.
    1. If resistance is less than 30 Ω, refer to "15.2.2.2 Required Action" .
    2. If resistance is greater than 30 Ω, refer to "15.2.2.3 Required Action" .
Section 15.2.2.1
Required Action

Perform the following steps to resolve an SFT sensor short-to-ground fault.‪

  1. Remove and replace SFT sensor.
  2. Erase fault code memory.
Section 15.2.2.2
Required Action

Perform the following steps to resolve an SFT sensor short-to-ground fault.‪

  1. Repair short to ground in 55-pin connector wire 36 to pin 1 of the SFT sensor connector.
  2. Erase fault code memory.
Section 15.2.2.3
Required Action

Perform the following steps to resolve an SFT sensor short-to-ground fault.‪

  1. Clean and check the SFT sensor contacts.
