- Remove the front center console to gain access to the G-sensor.
- Connect a positive terminal of a controllable power source to the G-sensor terminal 1 and a negative terminal to G-sensor terminal 3, then apply 7.3V (the limits of voltage guaranteed for operation is 7.0-7.5V).
- Connect a voltmeter to terminal 2 and measure the variations of voltage when the G-sensor is tipped up and down (tip the G-sensor from the normal mounting position to the position where the front face is facing straight down).
- When the G-sensor is sitting in the position in which it is normally mounted the voltage should be 1.1-1.5V and when the G-sensor is tipped down, the voltage should be 4.6-5.0V.
- If the G-sensor does not register these voltages, replace the G-sensor with a new unit.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
- Remove the front center console from the Pick-up truck to gain access to the G-sensor and the System Control Unit (SCU).
- Disconnect the electrical wiring to the G-sensor, then loosen and remove any retaining screws from the G-sensor. Remove the G-sensor from the vehicle.
- The SCU is located behind the G-sensor. Disconnect the electrical wiring to the SCU, then remove the mounting screws. Extract the SCU from the vehicle.
- To install, connect the wiring to the SCU and mount in place with the retaining screws.
- Install the G-sensor with the mounting screws and connect the wiring.
- Install the front center console to the vehicle, then connect the negative cable to the battery.
