DTC Troubleshooting: P1298 (20-2)

DTC P1298 (20-2):  ELD Circuit High Voltage

1.Reset the ECM/PCM.

2.Start the engine.

3.Turn on the headlights.

Is DTC P1298 indicated?


YES - Go to 4.


NO - Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose wires at the  ELD and at the  ECM/ PCM.n


4.Turn the ignition switch and headlights OFF.

5.Disconnect the ELD 3P connector.

6.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

7.Measure voltage between body ground and ELD 3P connector terminal No. 1.

 

Is there battery voltage?


YES - Go to 8.


NO - Check the No. 4 ACG (10A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box. If the fuse is OK, repair open in the wire between the No. 4 ACG (10A) fuse and the  ELD.n

8.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

9.Connect ELD 3P connector terminal No. 3 to body ground with a jumper wire.

 


10.Disconnect ECM/PCM connector E (31P).

11.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.

12.Check for continuity between body ground and ECM/PCM connector terminal E15.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Go to 13.


NO - Repair open in the wire between the  ECM/ PCM (E15) and the  ELD.

13.Check for continuity between ELD 3P connector terminal No. 2 and body ground.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Go to 14.


NO - Repair open in the wire between ELD and  G201.n


14.Reconnect the ELD 3P connector and ECM/PCM connector E (31P).

15.Reconnect the negative cable to the battery.

16.Start the engine and let it idle.

17.While measuring voltage between ECM/PCM connector terminals A24 and E15, turn the headlights on (high).

 

Does the voltage drop?


YES - Substitute a known-good ECM/PCM and recheck. If symptom/indication goes away, replace the original  ECM/ PCM.n


NO - Replace the  ELD.n
