Diagnostic Instructions

  • Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle prior to using this diagnostic procedure.
  • Review Strategy Based Diagnosis for an overview of the diagnostic approach.
  • Refer to Diagnostic Procedure Instructions for an overview of each diagnostic category.

Circuit/System Description

The infotainment display and controls are a separate component from the radio, combined into an assembly. The assembly is supplied battery voltage and ground from the vehicle harness. The human machine interface control module communicates digital video data for on-screen display through a dedicated cable containing the LVDS data circuits.

Control information, touch communications and dimming level for the display are communicated via a LIN serial data circuit to the human machine interface control module.

Diagnostic Aids

Malfunctions may include a flickering or distorted image or a blank screen.
