Ecu malfunction
Description Inspection procedure If the power steering ecu detects these dtcs, it will shut off the motor relay circuit (built into the power steering ecu) and stop power assist. However, power assist continues if dtc c1533 is output. Reconfirm dtc Check for dtc. Ok: dtc i ...

Check for intermittent problems
Hint: Inspect the vehicle's ecm using check mode. Intermittent problems are easier to detect with the intelligent tester when the ecm is in check mode. In check mode, the ecm uses 1 trip detection logic, which is more sensitive to malfunctions than normal mode (default), which uses 2 trip detec ...
