That scope trace is not what one would expect.

What is the issue with the car - Fault codes, symptoms etc. would be a big help.

Re: Land Cruiser 3.0TD No Start, Cam/Crank sensor

So in conclusion I believe there is something wrong in that circuit. But is it the coil, wiring, the driving transistor or the MCU?
You would get more value if you added an amp clamp to one of the wires. Then you would see the command and the component reaction.

Re: MINI R56 2009

RYM Unlikely but not impossible. With the post cat O2 switching the Cat has failed and that O2 is warm enough to switch. A big "maybe" but never say never ! My knowledge and understanding is that P0420 should & will be present. In this case it is not. Front oxy sensor signal wire shorted to rear oxy...

Then P0420 is present or you or your Verus Guide to the Galaxy is telling lies. Period. O2 S2 switching high and low, with a heater Circuit Fault and still swit...

Re: Hello to all

Not many people in my place ever use it really so there isn't much to learn from anyone in the workplace. I'm a bit of a Volvo geek myself, have an XC90 and looking for another C70 T5. Had one a few years back and miss it. A very good Friend is a Mastertech at the Dealer in Slough, I have Vida/Dice...
