P0487 EGR Throttle Position Control Circuit (D6CC)

General Description (P0487)

DC motor type EGR actuator which is controlled by EDU module operates the EGR valve directly. ECM performs EGR system feed back control with the information of measured mass air flow. (The role of AMS in diesel engine is different from gasoline engine. Fuel injection quantity is decided by MAFS signal in gasoline engine.)

When the amount of EGR gas(contains no oxygen) flowing into combustion chamber increases, the air passing through MAFS(contains oxygen) decreases. Thus, with the output signal change of AMS accompanied by EGR actuator actuation, ECM determines the amount of recirculated EGR gas quantity.

DTC Description (P0487)

If EGR actuator circuit is open for more than 60 seconds, ECM judge this as a fault and DTC is set. The possible cause may be EDU-EGR harness open circuit, EGR DC motor problem. In case of fail safe, it is impossible to control EGR system and engine output is restricted. The vehicle can be driven but lack of engine power and black smoke may occur.

Monitor Scantool Data

1. Connect scantool to Data Link Connector(DLC).
2. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature.
3. Turn the electrical equipment and air conditioner off.
4. Monitor “Intake air and EGR valve” parameter on the scantool

Diagnostic Aids
When lack of engine power occurs, intake system inspection is useful as a reference.
Check to be sure that EGR valve actual position is conversing the EGR position demand.

Terminal & Connector Inspection

1. Many malfunctions in the electrical system are caused by poor harness, and terminals.
2. Faults can also be caused by interference from other electrical systems, and mechanical or chemical damage.

Thoroughly check connectors for looseness, poor connection, bending, corrosion, contamination, deterioration, or damage.

3. Has a problem been found?

YES   Repair as necessary and then go to “Verification of Vehicle Repair” procedure.
NO   Go to “Power Circuit Inspection” procedure.

Power Circuit Inspection

1. EGR DC motor – EDU Circuit Open Inspection
(1) IG “OFF”, and set the start safety switch ON.
(2) Disconnect the EGR motor connector and EDU module connector.
(3) Measure resistance between terminal 5 of the EGR motor harness connector and terminal 11 of the EDU module connector.
(4) Measure resistance between terminal 6 of the EGR motor harness connector and terminal 10 of the EDU module connector.
(5) Measure resistance between terminal 7 of the EGR motor harness connector and terminal 9 of the EDU module connect
or.

(4) Is the resistance measured within specification?

YES Go to “Verification of Vehicle Repair” procedure
NO Replace the EGR DC motor and go to “Verification of Vehicle Repair” procedure.

Verification of Vehicle Repair

After a repair, it is essential to verify that the fault has been corrected.
1. Connect scantool and select “Diagnostic Trouble Codes(DTCs)” mode.
2. Using a scantool, clear the DTC.
3. Operate the vehicle within DTC enable conditions in General Information.
4. Are any DTCs present?

YES Go to the applicable DTC procedure.
 NO System is performing to specification at this time.
