Service procedure 1. Attempt to reproduce the symptoms in the vehicle, and document results on repair order. If the specific symptoms described above are present, check for dtcs in all high speed and medium speed can modules. Record and perform appropriate pin point test (ppt) in workshop manual (wsm), section 418-00. Check for proper function of powers and grounds to the instrument cluster. Monitor generator output during concern for possible under / over charging concern. If ppt(s) do not identify an issue due to intermittant condition, and there are no network communication dtcs (u codes) in the instrument cluster, replace the cluster. 2. If the symptoms and diagnostics described above require an instrument cluster replacement, refer to wsm, section 413-01. Otherwise, complete all applicable pinpoint tests and repair as specified. Note cluster should not be replaced for individual warning light trouble or when communication cannot be established with an individual module.

verify the inoperative indicator lamp. Is the 4×4 high indicator inoperative? No if the 4×4 low indicator is inoperative, go to x13. If both the 4×4 high and 4×4 low indicators are inoperative, go to x4. Verify the o/d off indicator lamp operates. Does the o/d off indicator lamp operate? Replace the instrument cluster printed circuit. Clear the dtcs. Test the system for normal operation. No go to xs. Tèst detailsiresults/actions measure the voltage between instrument cluster c286-5, circuit 484 and ground. Is the voltage greater than 10 volts? -> yes replace the instrument cluster printed circuit. Clear the dtcs. Test the system for normal operation. -> no ® g I go lo x6. X6 check circuit 484 (ol bk) for open and short to ground measure the resistance between instrument cluster c286-5, circuit 484 (c)/bk), and headlamp switch c216-8, circuit 484 (of bk); and between instrument cluster c286~5, circuit 484 (0/bk), and ground. Is the resistance less than 5 ohms between the instrument cluster and headlamp switch; and greater than 10,000 ohms between the ‘ instrument cluster and ground? -> yes diagnose exterior lighting concern. -a no repair circuit 484 (o/bk). Clear the dtcs. Test the system for normal operation.
