Special Tool - Peak Voltage Adapter: 57001-1415 Type: KEK-54-9-B

ESD Actuator Input Voltage Inspection

ESD Actuator Input Voltage Connections to Adapter:

(I) Digital Meter (+) → BK (actuator BK) lead Digital Meter (–) → Battery (–) terminal (II) Digital Meter (+) → R (actuator R) lead Digital Meter (–) → Battery (–) terminal (III) Digital Meter (+) → W (actuator O) lead Digital Meter (–) → Battery (–) terminal (IV) Digital Meter (+) → Y (actuator Y) lead Digital Meter (–) → Battery (–) terminal

Input Voltage Standard: About DC 9 11 V and then
0.1 V or About DC 9 11 V

If the reading is out of the specification, remove the ESD ECU and check the wiring for continuity between main harness connector.

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

Disconnect the ESD ECU and actuator connectors.
