STEERING LOCK SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:B2781

DTC Code DTC Name
B2781 Open / Short in Steering Lock ECU

DESCRIPTION

The steering lock ECU and steering lock motor are built into the steering lock actuator assembly.

The steering lock ECU detects whether the steering lock is in the lock or unlock position by using the lock position sensor of the steering lock motor.

The steering lock ECU receives lock and unlock request signals from the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) and responds with lock and unlock operation signals.

Tech Tips

The steering lock ECU is not connected to the CAN communication system. However, the steering lock ECU is connected to the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) via LIN communication and communicates with other components via CAN communication through the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly).

DTC No. Detection Condition Trouble Area DTC Output Confirmation Operation

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Note


  • When using the GTS with the vehicle engine switch off, connect the GTS to the vehicle and turn a courtesy light switch on and off at intervals of 1.5 seconds or less until communication between the GTS and the vehicle begins. Then select the Model Code "KEY REGIST" under manual mode and enter the following menus: Body Electrical / Entry & Start(CAN). While using the GTS, periodically turn a courtesy light switch on and off at intervals of 1.5 seconds or less to maintain communication between the GTS and the vehicle.

  • After performing repairs, confirm that no DTCs are output again Click here.

  • When replacing the steering lock ECU (steering lock actuator assembly), registration must be performed (Refer to the Service Bulletin).

Tech Tips

When all the ECUs that are connected to the LIN communication cannot communicate with the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly), DTC B2785 is stored.

PROCEDURE
