Short to Ground Check

Check as follows:‪

  1. Disconnect the 120–pin MCM connector.
  2. Measure the resistance between pins 43 and 73 of the MCM 120–pin connector.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 1400 Ω, go to step 5 .
    2. If the resistance is less than 1400 Ω, go to step 3 .
  3. Disconnect the CKP Sensor.
  4. Measure the resistance pins 43 and 73 of the MCM 120–pin connector.
    1. If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace the CKP Sensor. Refer to "55.3.1.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short between pins 42 and 43 of the 120–pin MCM connector and the CKP Sensor. Refer to "55.3.1.1 Verify Repairs" .

  7. Measure the resistance between pin 43 of the MCM 120–pin connector and ground.
    1. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short to ground between pins 43 and 73 of the MCM 120–pin connector and the CKP Sensor connector.
    2. If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, replace the CKP Sensor. Refer to "55.3.1.1 Verify Repairs" .
Section 54.3.1.1
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.
  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.
