Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Inspection

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Self-Diagnosis System / Vehicle-down Sensor (Service Code 31) / Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Inspection

NOTE

Be sure the battery is fully charged.

Special Tool - Measuring Adapter: 57001-1700

Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Connections to Adapter: Digital Meter (+) → R (sensor BL) lead Digital Meter (–) → BK (sensor BR/BK) lead

Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


Input Voltage Standard: DC 4.75 5.25 V


If the reading is within the standard, check the output voltage (see Vehicle-down Sensor Output Voltage Inspection).

If the reading is out of the standard, remove the ECU and check the wiring for continuity between main harness connectors.

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Disconnect the ECU and sensor connectors.

Vehicle-down Sensor Input Voltage Inspection


If the wiring is good, check the ECU for its ground and power supply (see ECU Power Supply Inspection in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).

If the ground and power supply are good, replace the ECU (see ECU Removal/Installation in the Fuel System (DFI) chapter).

Vehicle-down Sensor Installation
Be sure to install the rubber dampers [A] and collars [B] on the bracket. The UP mark [A] of the sensor should face upward. WARNINGIncorrect installation of the vehicle-down ...

Vehicle-down Sensor Output Voltage Inspection
Remove the vehicle-down sensor. Connect the measuring adapter [A] to the vehicle-down sensor connectors as shown in the figure. Special Tool - Measuring Adapter: 57001-1700 Main Harness [B] ...

Clutch Plate Warp Inspection
Place each friction plate or steel plate on a surface plate and measure the gap between the surface plate [A] and each friction plate or steel plate [B] with a thickness gauge [C]. The gap is the amount of friction or steel plate warp. If any plate is warped over the service limit, repla ...

Crankshaft Sensor Peak Voltage Inspection
NOTE Be sure the battery is fully charged. Using the peak voltage adapter [A] is more reliable way to determine the condition of the crankshaft sensor than crankshaft sensor internal resistance measurements. Disconnect the crankshaft sensor lead connector (see Crankshaft Sensor ...

Intake Air Pressure Sensor #1 Output Voltage Inspection
Measure the output voltage at the intake air pressure sensor #1 in the same way as input voltage inspection, note the following. Disconnect the intake air pressure sensor #1 connector and connect the measuring adapter [A] between these connectors. [B] Main Harness [C] Intake Air Pressu ...
