ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM [EPS CONTROL MODULE]

Outline

  • The on-board diagnostic system consists of the following functions:

    • A malfunction detection function that detects abnormalities in input/output signals when the ignition switch is at the ON position.

    • A PID/data monitor function that reads out specified input/output signals.

  • The data link connector 2 (DLC-2), which groups together all the connectors used for malfunction diagnosis into a single location, has been adopted, thereby improving serviceability. Diagnosis is performed by connecting the Mazda Modular Diagnostic System (M-MDS) to the DLC-2.

  • In addition to DTC read-out, the Mazda Modular Diagnostic System (M-MDS) has following functions:

    • PID/data monitor access

    • DTC clear using the display screen of the diagnostic tester

Function

Malfunction detection function
  • The malfunction detection function detects malfunctions in the input/output signal system of the EPS control module when the ignition switched ON or driving the vehicle.

Malfunction display function
  • When the malfunction detection function detects a malfunction, the power steering malfunction indicator light illuminates or flashes to alert the driver.

  • Using the external tester communication function, DTCs can be output to the DLC-2 via the CAN line. At the same time, malfunction detection results are sent to the memory function and fail-safe function.

Memory function
  • The memory function stores DTCs of malfunctions in input/output signal systems. With this function, once a DTC is stored it is not cleared after the ignition switch has been switched OFF, even if the malfunctioning signal system has returned to normal.

  • Since the EPS control module has a built-in non-volatile memory, DTCs are not cleared even if the battery is removed. Therefore, it is necessary to clear the memory after performing repairs. Refer to the Workshop Manual for the DTC clearing procedure.

Status byte for DTC
  • The status byte is the two-digit code (two digits after hyphen (-)) after the seven-digit DTC.

  • The status byte is a code which indicates the pending code, current/past malfunction status, or warning illumination status.

  • The status byte can be read by performing a CMDTC self test using the Mazda Modular Diagnostic System (M-MDS).

  • For details on the status byte, refer to the explanation on the M-MDS when reading the DTC.

Fail-safe function
  • When the malfunction detection function determines a malfunction, the power steering malfunction indicator light illuminates or flashes to alert the driver. At this time, the fail-safe function disables system control or gradually reduces the assist power.

External tester communication function
  • The external tester communication function enables communication of diagnostic data (DTC read-outs, input/output signal read-outs) between the EPS control module and an external tester.

  • By connecting the Mazda modular diagnostic system (M-MDS) to the DLC-2, diagnostic data can be sent and received between the Mazda modular diagnostic system (M-MDS) and the EPS control module via CAN lines.

  • The EPS control module receives the command signals of the malfunction detection function and PID/data monitor function from the Mazda modular diagnostic system (M-MDS), and sends DTCs and data regarding the operating status of each input/output part to the Mazda modular diagnostic system (M-MDS).
