Diagnostic

ISO7638 connection is the mandatory power supply for ABS/EBS systems. If the system is showing a wrong function, the power supply must be the first step of the diagnostic!

Before to use the table below, first check the reaction of the system at power ON, either with service brake applied (Brake pedal) or with the red coupling head disconnected (Emergency braking mode) or with the yellow line supplied (At 6.5 bar air pressure).

When switching power ON

  • Each modulator exhausts one time (the number of exhaust must be the same as the number of modulators).
  • ABS warning lamp on dashboard indicates a specific sequence (ON/OFF) or (ON/OFF/ON)

If not, check power supply :

If permanent power is missing (0V), solenoids are not powered.

If mesured value is below B+ (voltage drop), it can indicate a resistance in the wiring.

Next steps :

  • check for oxidation marks in the connectors
  • check truck power supply
  • check the continuity of the wires with ohmmeter between ISO7638 socket/plug and ECU plug. (R<5Ω for correct operation)

A permanent power indicates a wrong wiring or short circuit.

Next steps :

  • check for oxidation marks in the connectors
  • check truck power supply
  • check the wire position in ISO7638 socket/plug
  • check isolation between wires with ohmmeter
