1 2-46. STE/ICE-R TEST PROCEDURES
STARTER CIRCUIT RESISTANCE
This procedure measures starter circuit
resistance. Test requires DCA hookup only.
Run confidence test. Warm up engine to
operating temperature. Turn off all electrical
Possible Error Messages:
Check resistance of complete starting system
in Cl engines with VTM powered from batteries
of vehicle being tested.
Transducer not connected.
Offset not performed.
VTM does not detect battery voltage.
VTM cannot use data received.
No first-peak information was detected
by the VTM.
VTM cannot calculate result because
current is over current probes range.
Disconnect fuel solenoid wire 54A to prevent
Make sure all vehicle accessories are off.
Set TEST SELECT switches to 74.
Press and hold TEST button until CAL appears
Release TEST button and wait for offset value
to appear on display. If offset is within the
range -150 to 150, proceed. If not, go to DCA
Press and release TEST button.

An error message
8. Observe displayed value (milliohms).
If .18.104.22.168 is displayed, the starter circuit
value was too high and cannot
be measured with VTM.
If EO13 is displayed, check battery
connections and correct as necessary.
Repeat Step 6. If E013 persists after 3
tests, VTM cannot perform test.
