SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

A resolver is a sensor that is used to detect the position of the magnetic poles of the rotor of a generator. Knowing the position of the poles is indispensable for ensuring precise control of the generator (MG1).

Each resolver contains a stator that has an excitation coil and 2 detection coils (S, C). The gap between the stator and rotor changes as the rotor turns because the rotor is oval shaped. An alternating current with a predetermined frequency flows through the excitation coil, and detection coils S and C output alternating currents in accordance with the sensor rotor position.

The MG ECU, which is built into the inverter with converter assembly, detects the absolute position of the rotor according to the phases of detection coils S and C and the heights of their waveforms. Furthermore, the CPU calculates the amount of change in the position within a predetermined length of time, in order to use the resolver as a revolution speed sensor.

The MG ECU monitors signals output from the generator resolver and detects malfunctions.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

This diagnostic procedure is referenced to in the diagnostic procedure of several DTCs.

If the result of this diagnostic procedure is normal, proceed as directed in the procedure for the DTC.

CAUTION:

Refer to the precautions before inspecting high voltage circuit.

    HINT:

    When disconnecting and reconnecting the auxiliary battery, there is an automatic learning function that completes learning when the respective system is used.

HINT:

  • If the problem symptom cannot be reproduced, performing a road test on a road on which the vehicle tends to vibrate will make it easier to reproduce the symptom.
  • If the resolver is malfunctioning, the vehicle may not drive smoothly.
  • When inspecting the connectors, if it is difficult to judge if a connector was disconnected, deformed or improperly secured, disconnect and reconnect the connector and then check for DTCs again. Check if the same DTC is output. If the same DTC is not output, improper connection of connectors is suspected.
  • As a malfunction detection threshold may be exceeded when performing the vibration or heat connector inspections, make sure to perform the following inspection to check that the DTC was not stored due to the malfunction of a part.

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (INVERTER WITH CONVERTER ASSEMBLY - GENERATOR RESOLVER)

CAUTION:

Be sure to wear insulated gloves.

(a) Check that the service plug grip is not installed.

NOTICE:

After removing the service plug grip, do not turn the ignition switch to ON (READY), unless instructed by the repair manual because this may cause a malfunction.

(b) Disconnect the inverter with converter assembly connector.

(c) Connect the cable to the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal.

(d) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(e) Measure the voltage according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard Voltage:

Tester Connection

Condition

Specified Condition

C140-3 (GRF) - Body ground

Ignition switch ON

Below 1 V

C140-4 (GRFG) - Body ground

Ignition switch ON

Below 1 V

C140-13 (GSN) - Body ground

Ignition switch ON

Below 1 V

C140-12 (GSNG) - Body ground

Ignition switch ON

Below 1 V

C140-19 (GCS) - Body ground

Ignition switch ON

Below 1 V

C140-18 (GCSG) - Body ground

Ignition switch ON

Below 1 V

NOTICE:

Turning the ignition switch to ON with the inverter with converter assembly disconnected causes other DTCs to be stored. Clear the DTCs after performing this inspection.

(f) Turn the ignition switch off.

(g) Disconnect the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal and wait for 2 minutes or more.

(h) Reconnect the inverter with converter assembly connector.

CHECK GENERATOR RESOLVER

CAUTION:

Be sure to wear insulated gloves.

(a) Check that the service plug grip is not installed.

NOTICE:

After removing the service plug grip, do not turn the ignition switch to ON (READY), unless instructed by the repair manual because this may cause a malfunction.

(b) Disconnect the inverter with converter assembly connector.

(c) Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

Standard Resistance:

HINT:

To correct the variation of the measured resistance due to temperature, use the following formula to calculate the resistance at 20°C (68°F).

R20 = Rt / {1 + 0.00393 X (T - 20)}

The calculation is based on the following:

R20: Resistance at 20°C (68°F) (mΩ)

Rt: Measured resistance (mΩ)

T: Temperature when the resistance is measured (°C (°F).)
