Charging System Diagnosis Check Sheet
 
Brand/Make_________________ Model_______________________ Year___________ Engine________________Transmission_______________Mileage__________________ 
 
1. Technician verifies the customer complaint that the engine will not crank over and that there isless than 12.6 volts measured at the battery terminals. Based on these 2 criteria, technician checksfor any Technical Service Bulletins (TSB’S) and/or software updates that apply to the symptom. Note: This issue may be a known pattern failure that has been addressed by the factory engineerswho have compiled a specific repair procedure that involves updated parts and/or software. No Crank Complaint Verified: Yes:_____ No: _____ Battery Voltage: ____________________ Bulletins:______________________________________________________________________ 2. Technician records all storedPowertrain Control Modulediagnostic codesPCM Codes: ___________________________________________________________________ In addition to retrieving the diagnostic code(s) the technician performs a complete systems scan of 
all the vehicle computers
to determine if other computer systems are contributing to themalfunctioning Charging System.Example: On some vehicles the Body Control Computer is involved with the operation of theCharging System and may be contributing to the customer complaint.Other Vehicle Codes: ____________________________________________________________ 3. Technician documents all of the Freeze Frame Information for all of the stored codes. Note: Freeze Frame is a data 'movie', very much like an aircraft ‘in flight’ recorder, that saves thePower Train operating conditions when the Check Engine or other system code was triggered.Freeze Frame Data: _____________________________________________________________ 4. Technician inspects the battery and determines whether it is 4 or more years old.Battery Inspection Results: ____________________________ Age of Battery:_______________ I
 
Tech Info: If the battery is more than 4 years old, technician replaces the battery with a proper replacement battery. If the battery is less than 4 years old, technician charges the battery with asuitable battery charger until the open terminal is at least 12.6 volts with the charger turned off.5. Technician tries to start the vehicle with a known good or fully charged battery.Vehicle Starts and Runs: Yes:______________________ No:_____________________________ Tech Info: If the vehicle starts and runs then continue with this diagnostic check sheet. If thevehicle will not crank, then proceed to the No Start Diagnostic Sheet.6. Technician inspects the battery terminal voltage while the vehicle is idling with all the lights,heater, A/C and accessories off.Inspection Results:____________ Battery Voltage at least 14.1: Yes: ________ No:____________ Tech Info: If the battery voltage measures at least 14.1, then continue with this diagnostic check sheet. Otherwise, skip to the Low Charging System Output Diagnostic Sheet.7. While the vehicle is still idling the technician turns on the heater blower motor, headlights,wipers and inspects the battery voltage.Inspection Results:____________ Battery Voltage at least 13.8: Yes: ________ No:____________ Tech Info: If the battery voltage measures at least 13.8, then proceed to the next step in thisdiagnostic check sheet, otherwise, skip to the Low Charging System Output Diagnostic Sheet.8. Technician turns off the lights and all the electrical loads, shuts off the vehicle, removes the keyand shuts all the doors. Technician disconnects the battery negative terminal and connects amilliamp meter positive lead to the negative battery cable and the negative lead to the negative battery terminal with the meter set on the 10 amp scale and waits at least 5 minutes. Note: This is to inspect the system for any parasitic electrical drains that may be discharging the battery when the vehicle is parked and not in use.Inspection Results:____________ Milliamp Drain less than 1000: Yes: ________ No: _________ Tech Info: If the milliamp drain is less than 1000 milliamps, continue to the next step in thisdiagnostic check sheet. Otherwise, proceed to the Parasitic Drain Diagnostic Check Sheet.9. With the milliamp meter still connected as described in step 8, the technician changes the settingon the meter to a 2 amp or lower scale and waits at least 5 minutes.Inspection Results:____________ Milliamp Drain less than 60: Yes: ________ No: ___________ Tech Info: If the milliamp drain is less than 60 milliamps, there is no significant electrical drain onthe electrical system and it should function properly. Otherwise, proceed to the Parasitic DrainDiagnostic Check Sheet.II
