  1. Check and note BATTERY voltage in the VSA DATA LIST with the HDS.
  1. Using a voltmeter, measure and note the voltage between the battery terminals.
  1. Compare the voltage noted in Step 5 to the voltage in Step 6 .
Is the difference between the two voltage readings less then 3 V?
YES -
Intermittent failure, the system is OK at this time. Check for loose terminals at the VSA modulator-control unit 36P connector. Refer to intermittent failures troubleshooting. If the code resets after clearing, go to Step 8 .
NO -
Go to Step 8 .
  1. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), then start the engine.
  1. Check for DTCs with the HDS.
Is DTC 61-01, 61-21, 61-22, or 61-23 indicated?
YES -
Check for loose terminals in the VSA modulator-control unit 36P connector. If the VSA modulator-control unit was updated, substitute a known-good VSA modulator-control unit, then retest. If the VSA modulator-control unit was substituted, go to Step 1 .
NO -
If the VSA modulator-control unit was updated, troubleshooting is complete. If the VSA modulator-control unit was substituted, replace the original VSA modulator-control unit. If any other DTCs are indicated, go to the indicated DTCs troubleshooting.■
