Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

ECU Grounding Inspection

Connections:

(I) BK/Y leads (ECU terminal 40, 73 or 74) ←→ Battery (–) Terminal

(II) Engine Ground ←→ Battery (–) Terminal

Criteria: Both: 0 Ω

If no continuity, check the connectors, the engine ground lead, or main harness, and repair or replace them if necessary.

If the wiring is good, check the power source voltage of the ECU.
