1. Precaution
A: SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT
SYSTEM ?AIRBAG?
Airbag system wiring harness is routed near the
ABS sensor, ABS control module and hydraulic
control unit.
CAUTION:
All airbag system wiring harness and con-
nectors are yellow. Do not use electrical test
equipment on these circuit.
Be careful not to damage airbag system wir-
ing harness when servicing the ABS sensor,
ABS control module and hydraulic control unit.
2. Pre-inspection
Before performing diagnostics, check the following
items which might affect ABS problems:
A: MECHANICAL INSPECTION
1. POWER SUPPLY
1) Measure battery voltage and specific gravity of
electrolyte.
Standard voltage: 12 V, or more
Specific gravity: Above 1.260
2) Check the condition of the main and other
fuses, and harnesses and connectors. Also check
for proper grounding.
2. BRAKE FLUID
1) Check brake fluid level.
2) Check brake fluid leakage.
3. BRAKE DRAG
Check brake drag. <Ref. to 4-4 [K100].>
4. BRAKE PAD AND ROTOR
Check brake pad and rotor. <Ref. to 4-4 [K100].>
5. TIRE SPECIFICATIONS, TIRE WEAR
AND AIR PRESSURE
Check tire specifications, tire wear and air pres-
sure. <Ref. to 4-2 [S100].> and <Ref. to 4-2
[S200].>
