CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

If the power steering ECU and steering column assembly have been replaced, perform the rotation angle sensor initialization and torque sensor zero point calibration (See page ).


PROCEDURE

1.

READ VALUE USING TECHSTREAM (MOTOR VOLTAGE)

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(d) Turn the Techstream on.

(e) Enter the following menus: Chassis / EMPS / Data List.

(f) Select the items "Motor Terminal Volt(U)", "Motor Terminal Volt(V)" and "Motor Terminal Volt(W)" in the Data List and read the value displayed on the Techstream.
