i understand code logic, need how to test without dealer scantool....

Can you see any timing reference on your scanner, or operate the valve? If not, voltage you can check, but to actually see the degree of movement, you will either need an appropriate scanner {the modis w/ update will do it, some software for laptops are out that "should do it" and the dealer can do it. Only options. Anything else is a best guess, and that is pricey.


Here is a campaign on the valve, and you will need PDF reader to open it.


Here is the PDF reader if you do not have it.


Both are free to download.
