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).
