HYBRID CONTROL SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P0A1B-554 and P0A1C-169

DTC Code DTC Name
P0A1B-554 Drive Motor "A" Control Module
P0A1C-169 Drive Motor "B" Control Module

DTC SUMMARY

  1. MALFUNCTION DESCRIPTION

    These DTCs indicate that a large current flowed in the boost converter. The cause of this malfunction may be one of the following:

    • Internal inverter malfunction

    • Inverter internal circuit malfunction

    • Malfunction in ECU that controls the inverter

DESCRIPTION

*: The MG ECU, which is built into the inverter with converter assembly, can be suspected as a main cause of the malfunction.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

CAUTION:
  • Before inspecting the high-voltage system or disconnecting the low voltage connector of the inverter with converter assembly, take safety precautions such as wearing insulated gloves and removing the service plug grip to prevent electrical shocks. After removing the service plug grip, put it in your pocket to prevent other technicians from accidentally reconnecting it while you are working on the high-voltage system.

  • After removing the service plug grip, wait for at least 10 minutes before touching any of the high-voltage connectors or terminals. After waiting for 10 minutes, check the voltage at the terminals in the inspection point in the inverter with converter assembly. The voltage should be 0 V before beginning work.

    Tip:

    Waiting for at least 10 minutes is required to discharge the high-voltage capacitor inside the inverter with converter assembly.

Note:

After turning the power switch off, waiting time may be required before disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal. Therefore, make sure to read the disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal notices before proceeding with work.

Tip:

After the repair, clear the DTCs and perform the following procedure to check that DTCs are not output.

  1. Turn the power switch on (READY) and wait for 5 seconds or more.

  2. With the engine stopped and the shift lever in P, depress the accelerator pedal to start the engine.

PROCEDURE

  1. CHECK DTC OUTPUT (HYBRID CONTROL)

    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the power switch on (IG).

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Hybrid Control / Trouble Codes.

    4. Check for DTCs.
