Inspection Procedure 13: ASC-ECU Power Supply Circuit System






















caution
  • If there is any problem in the CAN bus lines, an incorrect diagnosis code may be set. Prior to this diagnosis, diagnose the CAN bus lines (Refer to GROUP 54C, Trouble code diagnosis ).
  • Whenever ECU is replaced, ensure that the CAN bus lines are normal.
  • When the hydraulic unit (integrated with ASC-ECU) is replaced, always carry out the calibration of the steering wheel sensor, the G and yaw rate sensor and brake fluid pressure sensor (Refer to , and ).

OPERATION



  • The ASC-ECU power supply signal energised by the ignition switch (IG1) is transmitted to ASC-ECU (terminal No.4) via the multi-purpose fuse No.12.
  • The ASC-ECU power supply and the valve power supply are transmitted to ASC-ECU (terminal No.32) via the fusible link No.27.
  • The ASC-ECU power supply and the valve power supply are transmitted to ASC-ECU (terminal No.1) via the fusible link No.26.
  • When malfunction occurs in ASC-ECU power supply, the communication with M.U.T.-III becomes unavailable.

PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Damaged wiring harness and connectors
  • Battery failure
  • Charging system failed
  • ASC-ECU malfunction
