Low Oil Pressure Indicator Circuit Troubleshooting (Open)

  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
  1. Make sure the HDS communicates with the vehicle and the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM). If it doesn't, troubleshoot the DLC circuit.
  1. Check for DTCs. If a DTC is present, diagnose, and repair the cause before continuing with this test.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II), select PGM-FI, and check the OIL PRESSURE SWITCH in the DATA LIST with the HDS.
Is ON indicated?
YES -
NO -
Go to Step 6 .
  1. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
Is the oil pressure switch OK?
YES -
Go to Step 8 .
NO -
  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II), and jump the SCS line with the HDS, then turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
    NOTE: This step must be done to protect the ECM/PCM from damage.
  1. Disconnect ECM/PCM connector B (49P) and the oil pressure switch connector.
  1. Check for continuity between ECM/PCM connector terminal B7 and the oil pressure switch connector.
Is there continuity?
YES -
NO -
Repair open in the wire between the oil pressure switch and the ECM/PCM.■
