Toyota Corolla (E120): Inspection procedure

Hint

:

  • if different dtcs related to different systems that have terminal e2 as the ground terminal are output simultaneously, terminal e2 may be open.
  • Read freeze frame data using the hand-held tester or the obd ii scan tool. Freeze frame data records the engine conditions when a malfunction is detected. When troubleshooting, it is useful for determining whether the vehicle was running or stopped, the engine was warmed up or not, the air–fuel ratio was lean or rich, etc. At the time of the malfunction.

1 Read value of hand–held tester or obd ii scan tool(intake air temperature)

  1. Connect the hand–held tester or the obd ii scan tool to the dlc3.
  2.  turn the ignition switch on and push the hand–held tester or the obd ii scan tool main switch on.
  3.  select the item ”diagnosis / enhanced obd ii / data list / all / intake air” and read its value displayed on the hand–held tester or the obd ii scan tool.

Temperature: same value as the actual intake air temperature.

Result:
