Test 1: Confirm car starts, and no IMA codes

Start the car. The car should start with the IMA motor, and have no check engine or IMA lights illuminated.

Since the harness was disconnected from the MCM and BCM, it is possible that the car will start with the 12V starter, and show an IMA light. If this happens follow the procedure for an MCM reset below, or if no lights and normal IMA starting, go to test 2.

This test also confirms that the MAMODE1, and CMDPWR connections are being properly jumpered by the test connector, and therefore are connected to the proper Main ribbon connector wires. Since they are jumpered, they could still be reversed, but we will discover that once we do the power on test.
