CUSTOMER PROBLEM ANALYSIS

  • When troubleshooting, check that the problem symptoms have been accurately identified. Preconceptions should be discarded in order to make an accurate judgment. To clearly understand what the problem symptoms are, it is extremely important to ask the customer about the problem and the conditions at the time the malfunction occurred.
  • Gather as much information as possible for reference. Past problems that seem unrelated may also help in some cases.
  • The following 5 items are important points for problem analysis:

    What

    Vehicle model, system name

    When

    Date, time, occurrence frequency

    Where

    Road conditions

    Under what conditions?

    Driving conditions, weather conditions

    How did it happen?

INSPECT BATTERY

(a) Measure the battery voltage.

Standard Voltage:

11 to 14 V

4.

CHECK CABIN

(a) Check that condensation is not likely to occur in the cabin and that the temperature is not high or extremely low in the cabin.

OK:

Condensation is not likely being produced and the temperature is not high or extremely low.

HINT:

  • A humid cabin and a rapid change in temperature may lead to condensation. Condensation in the cabin may cause a short circuit.
  • The navigation system may not operate normally when the temperature is -20°C (-4°F) or lower, or 65°C (149°F) or higher.
