The test fails if: With the MFC output commanded on (grounded), excessive current draw is detected on the MFC circuit; or with the MFC circuit commanded off, voltage is not detected on the MFC circuit (the PCM expects to detect IGN START/RUN voltage coming through the medium speed FC relay coil to the MFC circuit).
