Fail Safe

CAN COMMUNICATION CONTROL

When CAN communication with ECM and BCM is impossible, IPDM E/R performs fail-safe control. After CAN communication recovers normally, it also returns to normal control.

IGNITION RELAY MALFUNCTION DETECTION FUNCTION

  • IPDM E/R monitors the voltage at the contact circuit and excitation coil circuit of the ignition relay-1 inside it.
  • IPDM E/R judges the ignition relay-1 error if the voltage differs between the contact circuit and the excitation coil circuit.
  • If the ignition relay-1 cannot turn OFF due to contact seizure, it activates the tail lamp relay for 10 minutes to alert the user to the ignition relay-1 malfunction when the ignition switch is turned OFF.

NOTE: The tail lamp turns OFF when the ignition switch is turned ON.

FRONT WIPER CONTROL

IPDM E/R detects front wiper stop position by a front wiper auto stop signal.

When a front wiper auto stop signal is in the conditions listed below, IPDM E/R stops power supply to wiper after repeating a front wiper 10 seconds activation and 20 seconds stop five times.

NOTE: This operation status can be confirmed on the IPDM E/R "Data Monitor" that displays "BLOCK" for the item "WIP PROT" while the wiper is stopped.

STARTER MOTOR PROTECTION FUNCTION

IPDM E/R turns OFF the starter control relay to protect the starter motor when the starter control relay remains active for 90 seconds.

DTC Index

NOTE: The details of TIME display are as follows.

  • CRNT: The malfunctions that are detected now
  • 1 - 39: The number is indicated when it is normal at present and a malfunction was detected in the past. It increases like 0 → 1 → 2 ??* 38 → 39 after returning to the normal condition whenever IGN OFF → ON. It is fixed to 39 until the self-diagnosis results are erased if it is over 39. It returns to 0 when a malfunction is detected again in the process.
