Troubleshooting Guidelines

VERIFY THE COMPLAINT

DETERMINE POSSIBLE CAUSES

Compare the confirmed symptoms to the diagnostic symptom indexes to find the right diagnosis procedure.

If the confirmed symptoms cannot be found on any symptom index, determine other possible causes.

FIND THE PROBLEM

After the symptoms have been confirmed, and probable causes have been identified, the next step is to make step-by-step checks of the suspected system components, junctions, and links in logical order.

Use the diagnostic procedures in the service manual whenever possible. Follow these procedures carefully to avoid missing an important step in the diagnosis sequence. It might be the skipped step that leads to the solution of the problem.

If the service manual doesn't have step-by-step procedures to help diagnose the problem, make a series of checks based on the ranked list of probable causes. Troubleshooting checks should be made in the order that the list of causes was ranked:

REPAIR THE PROBLEM

When the step-by-step troubleshooting checks find a fault, perform the proper repairs. Make sure to fix the root cause of the problem, not just the symptom. Just fixing the symptom, without fixing the root cause, will cause the symptom to eventually return.

VERIFY THE REPAIR

After repairs are made, recheck the operation of the system to confirm that the problem is eliminated. Be sure to check the system thoroughly. Sometimes new problems are revealed after repairs have been made.
