VARIABLE GEAR RATIO STEERING SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:C1595/55, C15C4/68

DTC Code DTC Name
C1595/55 Lost Communication with Steering Angle Sensor Module(SIL)
C15C4/68 Steering Signal Not Detected

DESCRIPTION

Signal transmission between the VGRS ECU (front steering control ECU) and steering sensor is performed via serial communication.

If a serial communication error occurs between the VGRS ECU (front steering control ECU) and steering sensor, the ECU stores DTC C1595/55.

The test mode DTC C15C4/68 is only stored during test mode.

DTC No. Detection Item DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area Warning Indicate Return-to-normal Condition
C1595/55 Lost Communication with Steering Angle Sensor Module(SIL) With the engine switch on (IG) and a power source voltage of 10 V or more, serial communication from the steering sensor is interrupted for 3 seconds or more.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note


  • When replacing the VGRS ECU (front steering control ECU), perform actuator angle neutral point calibration and initialization after replacement.

  2. CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (VGRS ECU (FRONT STEERING CONTROL ECU) - STEERING SENSOR)


    1. Turn the engine switch off.

    2. Disconnect the O16 VGRS ECU (front steering control ECU) connector.

    3. Disconnect the O29 steering sensor connector.

    4. Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard Resistance
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      O16-5 (SS1-) - O29-9 (SS2-) Always Below 1 Ω
      O16-6 (SS1+) - O29-8 (SS2+) Always Below 1 Ω
      O16-5 (SS1-) or O29-9 (SS2-) - Body ground Always 100 kΩ or higher
      O16-6 (SS1+) or O29-8 (SS2+) - Body ground Always 100 kΩ or higher
      O16-5 (SS1-) - O16-6 (SS1+) Always 1000 kΩ or higher

      Component with harness connected

      (VGRS ECU [Front Steering Control ECU])

      Reconnect the O16 VGRS ECU (front steering control ECU) connector.

    2. Reconnect the O29 steering sensor connector.

    3. Start the engine.

    4. Measure the voltage according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Tech Tips

      With the connector connected to the VGRS ECU (front steering control ECU), measure the voltage from the rear of the connector.

      Standard Voltage
      Tester Connection Condition Specified Condition
      O16-5 (SS1-) - O16-6 (SS1+) Steering wheel rotated slowly Pulse waveform that alternates between 0 and 5 V is output
