P0683 – Glow Control Unit Communication Abnormality MMC L200 IV



OPERATION

  • The electrical current source is supplied from the engine control relay (terminal No. 3) to the glow control unit (terminal No. 6). Also, it is supplied from the glow control unit (terminal No.7) to the body earth.
  • The request signal of operating the glow plug is input into the glow control unit (terminal No. 1) from the engine-ECU (terminal No.120).
  • The voltage for the glow plug is applied from the battery to the glow control unit (terminal No. 10).
  • The voltage is applied from the glow control unit (terminal No.1, 2, 3 and 4) to each glow plug.
  • The diagnosis signal is output from the glow control unit (terminal No. 9) to the engine-ECU (terminal No. 126).

  • FUNCTION

  • The voltage applied to the glow control unit (terminal No.10) from the battery is applied to each glow plug in the duty ratio according to the signal from the engine ECU.

  • TROUBLE JUDGMENT

  • While the engine is running
  • The electrical continuity duty to the glow plug is 17 – 83 %.
  • The diagnosis signal is not received from the glow control unit for more than 5 seconds.

  • PROBABLE CAUSES

  • Failed glow control unit
  • Open/short circuit or harness damage in glow control unit power supply/earth circuit or loose connector contact.
  • Loose connector contact; open/short circuit or harness damage of communication wire between glow control unit and engine-ECU.
  • Failed engine-ECU

  • DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE

    STEP 1. Connector check: A-151 glow control unit connector

    Q. Is the check result normal?

    STEP 2. Perform voltage measurement at A-151 glow control unit connector.

  • Disconnect connector, and measure at harness side.
  • Ignition switch: ON
  • Voltage between terminal No. 6 and earth.
  • Q. Is the check result normal?

    STEP 3. Connector check: A-20X engine control relay connector

    Q. Is the check result normal?

  • Check power supply line for open/short circuit.
  • STEP 4. Perform resistance measurement at A-151 glow control unit connector.

  • Disconnect connector, and measure at harness side.
  • Resistance between terminal No.7 and earth.
  • Q. Is the check result normal?

  • Check earthing line for open circuit and damage.
  • STEP 5. Check harness between A-151 (terminal No. 1) glow control unit connector and C-103 (terminal No. 120) engine-ECU connector.

  • Check signal line for open/short circuit and damage.
  • Q. Is the check result normal?

    STEP 6. Check harness between A-151 (terminal No. 9) glow control unit connector and C-103 (terminal No. 126) engine-ECU connector.

  • Check signal line for open/short circuit and damage.
  • Q. Is the check result normal?

    STEP 7. Check harness between A-151 (terminal No. 6) glow control unit connector and A-20X (terminal No. 3) engine control relay connector.

  • Check power supply line for damage.
  • Q. Is the check result normal?

    STEP 8. M.U.T.-III diagnosis code.

  • Reconfirmation of diagnosis code.
  • Q. Is the diagnosis code set?

    STEP 9. Replace the glow control unit.

  • After replacing the glow control unit, reconfirm whether the diagnosis code is set.
  • Q. Is the diagnosis code set?
