ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM : Fail Safe

NON DTC RELATED ITEM

Detected items

Engine operating condition in fail-safe mode

Remarks

Reference page

Malfunction indicator circuit Engine speed will not rise more than 2,500 rpm due to the fuel cut When there is an open circuit on MIL circuit, the ECM cannot warn the driver by lighting up MIL when there is malfunction on engine control system.

Therefore, when electrical controlled throttle and part of ECM related diagnoses are continuously detected as NG for 5 trips, ECM warns the driver that engine control system malfunctions and MIL circuit is open by means of operating fail safe function.

The fail safe function also operates when above diagnoses except MIL circuit are detected and demands the driver to repair the malfunction.

EC-467, "Component Function Check"

DTC RELATED ITEM

Description

When a DTC is detected, ECM executes a mode (in the Fail-safe mode) applicable to the DTC. The fail-safe mode has the preset traveling control mode (accelerator angle variation and engine output limit) and device fix mode.

Fail safe mode

Vehicle behavior

Traveling control mode Accelerator angle variation control ECM controls the accelerator pedal depression speed to make it slower than actual speed. This causes a drop in accelerating performance and encourages the driver to repair malfunction.

NOTE:

ECM does not control the accelerator pedal releasing speed.

Engine output control ECM reduces the engine output, according to the rise in engine speed. This reduces the vehicle speed to encourage the driver to repair malfunction.
Device fix mode
  • This mode fixes the IVT control solenoid valve and the EVT control solenoid valve in the reference position.
  • The intake manifold runner control valve motor is turned OFF (intake manifold runner control valve opens).
