POWER STEERING SYSTEM DATA LIST / ACTIVE TEST


  1. DATA LIST

    Tech Tips

    Using the intelligent tester to read the Data List allows the values or states of switches, sensors, actuators and other items to be read without removing any parts. This non-intrusive inspection can be very useful because intermittent conditions or signals may be discovered before parts or wiring is disturbed. Reading the Data List information early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic time.

    Note

    In the table below, the values listed under "Normal Condition" are reference values. Do not depend solely on these reference values when deciding whether a part is faulty or not.


    1. Turn the ignition switch off.

    2. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    3. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    4. Turn the intelligent tester on.

    5. Enter the following menus: Chassis / EMPS / Data List.

    6. According to the display on the intelligent tester, read the Data List.

    Tech Tips


    • The amount of power assist may be decreased to prevent the motor and ECUs from overheating if the steering wheel is continuously turned when the vehicle is either stopped or driven at a low speed, or if the steering wheel is kept at either full lock position for a long time. In such cases, the amount of power assist returns to normal if the steering wheel is not turned for approximately 10 minutes with the engine idling.

    • If the battery is not sufficiently charged or the voltage decreases temporarily, the amount of power assist is reduced and the EPS warning light comes on. In such cases, the amount of power assist returns normal when the battery voltage recovers.

    • When the value displayed for "Battery Voltage Lo Record" in the Data List is not 0, the system is limiting the rear window defogger, mirror heater and PTC heater operation. In this case, troubleshoot the charging system.
