Short to Power Check

Check for short to power as follows:‪

  1. Disconnect the wastegate control actuator connector.
  2. Turn the ignition ON (key ON, engine OFF).
  3. Measure the voltage between pin 3 of the wastegate control actuator connector and ground.
    1. If the voltage is greater than 11.5 volts, repair the short to power between pin 3 of the wastegate control actuator connector and pin 35 of the 120–pin MCM connector.
    2. If the voltage is less than 11.5 volts, go to step 4 . See Figure "Wastegate" .
    3. Click to see this graphic in a separate window

  4. Turn the ignition OFF.
  5. Disconnect the 120–pin MCM connector.
  6. Measure the resistance between pins 3 and 4 of the wastegate control actuator connector.
    1. If the resistance is less than 5 Ω, repair the short between pins 3 and 4 of the wastegate control actuator connector and pins 35 and 93 of the 120–pin MCM connector. Refer to "55.1.1.1 Verify Repairs" .
    2. If the resistance is greater than 5 Ω, replace the wastegate control actuator. Refer to "55.1.1.1 Verify Repairs" .
Section 55.1.1.1
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.
