Diagnostics of malfunctions

In this Section the simplest scheme of clarification of the reasons of the malfunctions and refusals happening in knots and systems of the vehicle is offered. Refusals and their possible reasons are broken into groups on a sign of the relation to certain components or systems of the car, such as the engine, the cooling system, etc., besides, in the text references to Chapters and Sections concerning these problems are given.

Remember that the successful completion of search of causes of defect is not the black magic available only to skilled professional mechanics at all, and is defined by a combination of a certain knowledge and patient, systematic approach to a problem research. It is necessary to move always from simple to difficult, to bring each check to the logical end and to try not to pass the obvious facts – everyone can forget to fill fuel in the fuel tank or to leave included in lighting fixtures for the night.

And at last, it is always necessary to try to make a clear picture of development of malfunction and to take the corresponding steps for prevention of a recurrence. If the failure of electric equipment happened for a cause of infringement of quality of contact, check a condition of all other contacts and electric sockets of system at the same time. If the same safety lock several times in a row continues to fuse, there is no sense in its further replacement – it is necessary to try to find out a cause of failure. Remember that failure of a minor component can be a sign of violation of functioning of more important knot or the whole system.

1 Check of serviceability of functioning of components of systems of injection and decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases is made by means of the universal digital measuring instrument (multimeter). Use of the digital measuring instrument is preferable for several reasons. First, on analog devices it is rather difficult (sometimes, it is impossible), to define result of the indication to within the 100-th and thousand shares while at inspection of the contours including electronic components in the structure, such accuracy is of particular importance.

The second, not less important, the fact that the internal contour of a digital multimeter, has rather high impedance is the reason (internal resistance of the device makes 10 megohms). As the voltmeter is connected to the checked chain in parallel, the accuracy of measurement of subjects is higher, than smaller current will pass through actually device. This factor is not essential at measurement of rather high values of tension (9 ÷12 V), however becomes defining at diagnostics of the elements giving low-voltage signals, such as, for example, l-probe where it is about measurement of shares of volt.

2 Special diagnostic scanners (Pointer) or testers (Retriever) with a certain cartridge, a universal cable and the socket are used to diagnostics of electronic systems of the engine, automatic transmission, ABS, SRS. Besides, it is possible to use the expensive specialized automobile diagnostic computer which is specially developed for full diagnostics of the majority of systems of modern cars to this purpose (for example, ADC2000 of Launch HiTech), or the ordinary computer with a set of the interface devices.
3 In principle, reading of the codes of malfunctions which are written down in memory of system of self-diagnostics can be made also on the indicator "check the engine" on the control panel (address the Head Elektrooborudovaniye of the engine).
4 The scanner only reads out the malfunctions brought memory and clears memory of malfunctions. Besides the scanner supports only the ISO protocol. The tester in addition can make active and show the current data and supports the SAE and ISO protocols.

All cartridges for a tester can be used also in the scanner. At the same time functions will be limited only to reading and cleaning of memory.

Devices of ToolRama, Inc can be used to diagnostics, for example. (3500 NW Boca Raton Blvd., Boca Raton, Florida, 33431, USA 1 877 866 5726 – 561 750 4511 – 561 338 8447 FAX):

R000 tester with T051D cartridge, the P000 scanner with T041 cartridge,
universal N000 cable,
N001 socket.

For the majority of cars of release since 1996 supporting the SAE/ISO 9141 OBD II protocol OBD II cartridge performing the following functions can be used:

• Reading and removal of codes of malfunctions of OBD II. Reflection of results of tests of the sensor of oxygen.
• Continuous control of systems of ignition, injection and components.
• Reflection of the list of the current data and the recorded unstable refusals:

Absolute pressure in the inlet pipeline;
Oxygen sensor tension;
Temperature of cooling liquid of the engine;
Settlement loading of the engine;
Car speed;
Quality of fuel;
Air consumption (on weight);

Engine

If the engine is not started, it is necessary to analyse a situation. That the engine in general could be started, two main conditions have to be satisfied. Fuel-air mix has to come to cylinders, and on a spark plug the spark has to be developed. Therefore, first, it is necessary to check whether fuel moves. As at the same time it is necessary to work, it is described in the Head of the Power supply system, injection and release.

To define whether the spark is developed, it is necessary to turn out candles, to insert into tips and to put separately to weight. At the same time you do not hold a tip or a cable of ignition with hands, and use well isolated nippers. Ask the assistant to start the engine. If the spark does not slip, define malfunction being guided by the Head Elektrooborudovaniye of the engine.

The engine is not turned in attempts of its start

1 Corrosion of plugs of the battery takes place or fastening of tips of wires on them weakened. Check a condition of plugs and tips. Tighten terminal clips, if necessary remove corrosion traces.
2 The battery is discharged or faulty. If tips of wires are found by pure and reliably fixed on battery plugs, turn the ignition key in position of ON, then include head headlights and/or screenwashes. If this electric equipment does not function, the battery is discharged.
3 Transmission it is inexact it is established in situation "P" (AT) or on neutral transfer (RKPP), or coupling is squeezed not completely out.
4 Conducting in a chain of system of start is torn off or fastening of wires on plugs weakened. Check a condition of wires, plugs and electric sockets of the battery, traction relay of a starter and the lock of ignition.
5 The gear wheel of a starter is jammed in a gear wreath of a flywheel. On the models equipped with RKPP establish it on transfer and, ceilings manually the car, turn that its engine. At the first opportunity remove a starter and check a condition of a gear wheel and a gear wreath of a flywheel.
6 The traction relay of a starter (The head Elektrooborudovaniye of the engine) is faulty.
