Troubleshooting SID 232, FMI 1, Flash Code 46, Sensor Supply Voltage Low

Troubleshoot as follows:‪

NOTICE:

To avoid damage to the harness and connectors when disconnecting harness connectors, ensure the pulling force is applied to the connectors and not to the wires extending from the connectors.‪

  1. Check wire 916 (red and black, 5 VDC sensor supply) and T-splice wire 749 (yellow, sensor supply diagnostic) for a faulty 51 kΩ resistor at cavities A-3 (wire 916) and D-3 (wire 749) in the Vehicle Interface Harness (VIH) 30–pin connector (see Figure "Vehicle Interface Harness 30–pin Connector" ). Ensure the resistor is a metal film (not carbon) precision resistor with 0 to 1% accuracy and 0.5 Watt or higher rating. If not, replace with proper resistor and repair the wires.
