Check title to make sure you are troubleshooting the correct system for the problem. Next, read the INITIAL SETUP
carefully. Make sure you have all the items listed in the INITIAL SETUP. Some access steps in Equipment Conditions may
not need to be performed depending on the fault location. The INITIAL SETUP also includes tools and references. In
instances where STE/ICE-R troubleshooting may be more advantageous and time saving for the user, cross references to
(WP 0107 00), STE/ICE-R troubleshooting, are given under references. (WP 0107 00) contains references to standard
troubleshooting procedures. Its up to you to decide which are necessary for your particular problem.

Do steps 1 through 3. Lets say the multimeter reads 17 volts. The answer to the question, Does multimeter read more than
17 volts, is NO. Follow the NO arrow to the reference indicated. Lets say the multimeter reads more than 17 volts. The
answer to the question, Does multimeter read more than 17 volts, is YES. Follow the YES arrow to the next box.
Follow the YES box on the following page. Do steps 1 and 3. In this sample, lets say the multimeter reads more than 1/2
volt. The answer to step 3 is NO. Follow the NO arrow to the the reference indicated.
The NO arrow takes you to the next box. This box gives you the step to correct the fault. Do step 1. It tells you to go to
