I5 CHECK FOR VOLTAGE TO THE POWER FOLD MOTOR

NOTICE: The following step uses a test lamp to simulate normal circuit loads. Use only a Rotunda Test Lamp (SGT27000) or 250- 300mA incandescent bulb test lamp. To avoid connector terminal damage, use the Rotunda Flex Probe kit for the test lamp probe connection to the vehicle. Do not use the test lamp probe directly on any connector.

  • Connect: Power Fold Seat Control Switch C4179.
  • Ignition ON.
  • Connect a 12-volt incandescent test light between:
    Click to display connectors
    Positive Lead Measurement / Action Negative Lead
      C3345-2   C3345-1
  • NOTE: The motor output may only activate the seat motor output for approximately 500 ms then turn off. Activate the seat control switch while observing the test light.

Does the test light momentarily illuminate when the seat control switch is activated?
Yes CHECK the cables and/or latch release mechanism for binding or damage. REPAIR or INSTALL a new seat frame assembly as needed. If no concerns are found, INSTALL a new power fold motor.
REFER to: Power Fold Seat Motor (501-10B Rear Seats, Removal and Installation).

    • corrosion (install new connector or terminals - clean module pins)
    • damaged or bent pins - install new terminals/pins as necessary
    • pushed-out pins - install new pins as necessary
  • Reconnect the BJB connector. Make sure it seats and latches correctly.
  • Reconnect all previously disconnected connectors.
  • Ignition ON.
  • Operate the system and determine if the concern is still present.

Is the concern still present?
Yes CHECK OASIS for any applicable service articles: TSB , GSB , SSM or FSA . If a service article exists for this concern, DISCONTINUE this test and FOLLOW the service article instructions. If no service articles address this concern, INSTALL a new BJB .
No The system is operating correctly at this time. The concern may have been caused by module connections. ADDRESS the root cause of any connector or pin issues.
