STEERING LOCK SYSTEM DATA LIST / ACTIVE TEST


  1. READ 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 engine switch off.

    2. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    3. Turn the engine switch on (IG).

    4. Turn the intelligent tester on.

    5. Enter the following menus: Body / (desired system) / Data List.

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

    7. Using the intelligent tester, confirm the Data List items to help determine the cause of the problem.

      Note


      • The steering lock ECU communicates with the intelligent tester through the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) which uses CAN communication. If the CAN communication system or certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) is malfunctioning, Data List items may not be normal.

      • When using the intelligent tester with the engine switch off, perform either of the following: 1) Turn a courtesy light switch on and off at intervals of 1.5 seconds or less until communication between the intelligent tester and vehicle begins, or 2) connect the intelligent tester to the vehicle and select "Manual" from the initial screen on the intelligent tester. Select "Key Code Registration" under model code.

      Power Source Control
      Tester Display Measurement Item/Range Normal Condition Diagnostic Note
      Shift P Signal Shift position (P) signal / ON or OFF

      ON: Shift lever in P

      OFF: Shift lever not in P


      • Use this item to determine if the shift position switch is malfunctioning.

      • The engine cannot be started when this item is "OFF".

      Steering Unlock Switch State of steering unlock sensor signal output from steering lock actuator assembly / ON or OFF

      ON: Steering unlocked (Engine switch on (ACC))

      OFF: Steering locked (Engine switch off door opened)

      This item can be used to determine the cause of problems when the steering does not lock or unlock.

      Tech Tips


      • The steering is considered locked when the lock sensor is ON and the unlock sensor is OFF.

      • The steering is considered unlocked when the lock sensor is OFF and the unlock sensor is ON.

      Str Lock/Unlock Wait T-Out Steering lock or unlock malfunction / Yes or No

      Yes: Steering lock/unlock timed out (Lock bar stuck, etc.)

      Tech Tips

      Unlock operation conditions for the steering lock:

      When the following condition is met, the unlock operation is performed:

      The engine switch is on (ACC) or on (IG).


      • When the engine switch is turned on (ACC) or on (IG) and the key and certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) are verified, the steering is unlocked.

      When any of the following conditions are met, key verification is performed.


      • The brake pedal is depressed so that the engine can be started.

      • 30 seconds elapse after opening and closing a door.

      • The engine switch is pressed.

      Key verification occurs when the code emitted from the key and the code stored in the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) are compared to check that they match.

      Certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) verification occurs when the S code and L code are verified while the engine is being started or the engine switch is being pushed. The ID code box (immobiliser code ECU) uses the S code to determine whether the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) is authorized. The steering lock ECU uses the L code to determine whether the ID code box (immobiliser code ECU) is authorized.*1

      Certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) verification occurs when the L code is verified while the engine is being started or the engine switch is being pushed. The steering lock ECU uses the L code to determine whether the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) is authorized.*2
