Function

EPS motor current control

  • Normal control

    • Calculates the proper assist current based on the steering torque, and the vehicle and engine speeds, and outputs a target current to the EPS motor.

  • System overheating protection control

    • Monitors the temperature of the motherboard in the EPS CM and controls the motor voltage gradually to prevent overheating of the system.

  • Backup control

    • Even if a phase 1 open circuit malfunction in the EPS motor occurs, output current to the EPS motor is controlled so that steering assist is maintained.

On-board diagnostic function

  • The main part of the system control includes the self-diagnosis function. In case a malfunction occurs, the power steering malfunction indicator light/master warning light illuminates to alert the driver, and a DTC is stored in the EPS CM at the same time.

  • As a result of the on-board diagnosis, when a malfunction is determined, system control is suspended or limited to assure safety while driving.

CAN communication function

  • Outputs the EPS status signal and power steering malfunction indicator light illuminates on request via CAN lines.

Automatic configuration function

  • When the ignition is switched to ON or the engine is started after the EPS CM have been replaced, the EPS CM reads data from the instrument cluster via CAN communication to perform automatic configuration.

Steering wheel angle neutral position automatic learning function

  • When the ignition is switched from OFF to ON and the vehicle is driven normally, the steering wheel angle neutral position is detected automatically based on the signal from the torque sensor.
