Inspection and Verification

1. Verify the customer concern by operating the multifunction or ignition switch.

2. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

Visual Inspection Chart

Mechanical

Electrical

  • Ignition key

  • Ignition switch

  • Multifunction switch

  • Turn signal switch

  • Hazard/flasher switch

  • Battery junction box (BJB) Fuses:
  • (3) IGN (40A)
  • Central junction box (CJB) Fuses:
  • 6 (25A)
  • 39 (5A)
  • Damaged wiring harness
  • Loose or corroded connections

3. If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the scan tool to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel and select the vehicle to be tested from the scan tool menu. If the scan tool does not communicate with the vehicle:

  • check that the program card is correctly installed.
  • check the connections to the vehicle.
  • check the ignition switch position.

4. If the scan tool still does not communicate with the vehicle, refer to the scan tool manual.

5. Carry out the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTIC TEST. If the scan tool responds with:

  • CKT914, CKT915 or CKT70 =ALL ECUS NO RESP/NOT EQUIP
  • NO RESP/NOT EQUIP for GEM, go to Pinpoint Test A.
  • SYSTEM PASSED, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs and carry out self-test diagnostics for the GEM.

6. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the GEM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.

7. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
