Series 60 – SPN 3659/FMI 14 – INJECTOR #1 SPILL VALVE NOT OPERATING NORMALLY

This diagnosis is typically an open circuit, short to ground or short to power.

117.1.1 Open Circuit, Short to Ground or Short to Power Check
Check as follows:
1. Check for multiple codes.
[a] If fault code 168/1 is active , service 168/1 first. Refer to section 32.2.
[b] If fault 3660/14 and 3661/14 are active in addition to 3659/14, go to step 2.
[c] If only fault code 3659/14 is active, go to step 10.
2. Turn the ignition OFF.
3. Disconnect the Front Injector Harness 12–pin connector.
4. Inspect the Front Injector Harness 12–pin connector for bent or spread pins, inspect the
connector seal for damage (signs of water or oil intrusion).
[a] If the water or oil intrusion, bent or spread pins are found, repair as necessary.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
[b] If connector shows no signs of damage, go to step 5.
5. Measure the resistance between pins 9 and 2 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector
Harness. If using J-48671–10, measure between injector #1 pins 3 and 4.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace the under valve cover injector harness.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, 6.
6. Disconnect the MCM 120–pin connector.
7. Measure the resistance between pin 11of the MCM 120–pin connector and pin 9 of the Front Injector Harness 12–pin connector.
[a] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to step 8.
[b] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, repair the open between pin 11 of the MCM
120–pin connector and pin 9 of the Front Injector Harness 12–pin connector.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
8. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
9. Measure the resistance between the positive battery post and pin 11of the MCM 120–pin
connector.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, contact the Detroit Diesel Customer Support
Center at 313–592–5800 for MCM replacement authorization.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, repair the short to power between battery positive
and pin 11 of the MCM 120–pin connector. See Figure 117-1.

10. Turn the ignition OFF.
11. Disconnect the Front Injector Harness 12–pin connector.
12. Measure the resistance between pin 10 and pin 1 on the valve cover side of the injector
harness. If using J-48671–10, measure between injector #1 pins 3 and 4.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, 13.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to step 18.
13. Remove the upper valve cover.
14. Disconnect injector #1.
15. Measure the resistance between pin 9 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness
and pin 3 of the injector #1 harness connector. If usingJ-48671–10, measure between
injector #1 pin 3 and the injector #1 harness connector pin 3.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace the under valve cover injector harness.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to step 16.
16. Measure the resistance between pin 2 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness
and pin 4 of the injector #1 harness connector. If using J-48671–10, measure between
injector #1 pin 4 and the injector #1 harness connector pin 4.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace the under valve cover injector harness.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to step 17.
17. Measure the resistance between pin 2 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness
and ground. If using J-48671–10, measure between injector #1 pin 4 and ground.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace injector #1. Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, replace the under valve cover injector harness.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
18. Measure the resistance between pin 2 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness
and ground. If using J-48671–10, measure between injector #1 pin 4 and ground.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, repair the short to ground between pin 14 of the
120–pin MCM connector and pin 2 of the Front Injector Harness 12–pin connector.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, go to step 19.
19. Remove the upper valve cover.
20. Disconnect the injector #1 connector.
21. Measure the resistance between pin 2 on the valve cover side of the Front Injector Harness
and ground. If using J-48671–10, measure between injector #1 pin 4 and ground.
[a] If the resistance is greater than 3 Ω, replace injector #1. Refer to section 117.1.1.1.
[b] If the resistance is less than 3 Ω, replace the under valve cover injector harness.
Refer to section 117.1.1.1.

117.1.1.1 Verify Repairs
Verify repairs as follows:
1. Turn ignition OFF.
2. Reconnect any electrical connections that were disconnected to perform the diagnosis.
3. Clear codes with DDDL 7.0 or latest version.
4. Start and bring engine up to operating temperature (over 140°F/60°C).
5. Verify operation is satisfactory and no warning lamps illuminate. If warning lamps
illuminate, troubleshoot the codes. If assistance is required, call the Detroit Diesel
Customer Support Center at 313–592–5800.
