When checking for 5vlt at signal wire (Lt grn/blck + blk/wht)at female end of harness at encoder motor. I don't get a reading until I put one lead to the frame. Same happens when I check return signal with jumper.

I check all wires from module to encoder motor and from engine to module for ohms, nothing over.2. I checked voltage at module I had 5.06 volts at signal wire same as above. I had 12.5 volt for battery.

Do you think the tcc module is bad at the blck/wht (encoder low reference) wirer?
Do you
have the same problem?

Good evening,

I attached a wiring diagram for you to view. It is a 3 wire connector. You should have reference voltage on both the reference and the signal wire from the module.

The return wire is the ground controlled by the module.

Can you verify these voltages?

I had at the module 5.06 volts for signal wire and 5.06 volts for return signal but when I plugged the harness into module and tested from the end of harness near encoder. I get nothing. When I test same wirers from engine side I had 5.06 volts.

If I try to get volt reading from black/white encoder low reference on harness with dvm - an dvm + on 5 volt reference light green/black and same for dvm + brown/white encoder signal I get.1
But I get the right readings for all other wire on harness using dvm - on encoder low reference black/white an dvm + on other wires. So confused.

Based on your results you need the module.

I tested the module it's okay values are good. But if I reconnect harness and measure at encoder connector female side of harness I'm not getting the right readings from encoder signal, low reference and 5 volt reference. This is where I get on fused. Thinking I need to do a voltage drop test on those three wirers? When I test at connection in engine compartment of same three wire I think coming from module I get correct value.

I did same thing as I did for connection under car but at the module. I did black/white dvm - and lt green/blacck dvm + that gave me 5.6 volts only when I tough dvm- to frame. At module I back probed light green/black and brown/white jumpered together an grounded dvm- to black/white an when I touched between light green/black an brown/white with dvm + I had 5.06 return volt I believe.

The black/white wire is still my concern. The fact you can't use it as a ground still tells me the module is not reading that wire and it should be.

I still feel you need a module.
