HEADLAMP SYSTEM : System Description


HEADLAMP SYSTEM : System Description

LOW BEAM OPERATION

When the lighting switch is in 2nd position, the BCM receives input requesting the headlamps to illuminate.

This input is communicated to the IPDM E/R across the CAN communication lines. The CPU of the IPDM E/R controls the headlamp low relay coil which supplies power to the low beam headlamps.

HIGH BEAM OPERATION/FLASH-TO-PASS OPERATION

With the lighting switch in the 2nd position and placed in HIGH position, the BCM receives input requesting the headlamp high beams to illuminate. The flash to pass feature can be used any time and also sends a signal to the BCM. This input is communicated to the IPDM E/R across the CAN communication lines. The CPU of the combination meter controls the ON/OFF status off the HIGH BEAM indicator. The CPU of the IPDM E/R controls the headlamp high relay coil which supplies power to the high beam headlamps.

The combination meter receives a high beam request signal (ON) through the CAN communication lines and turns the high beam indicator lamp ON.

EXTERIOR LAMP BATTERY SAVER CONTROL

With the combination switch (lighting and turn signal switch) in the 2nd position and the ignition switch is turned from ON or ACC to OFF, the battery saver feature is activated.

Under this condition, the headlamps remain illuminated for a period of time, unless the lighting switch position is changed. If the lighting switch position is changed, then the headlamps are turned off.

Auto light system

Auto light system : system description

OUTLINE

The auto light control system has an optical sensor that detects outside brightness.

When the lighting switch is in AUTO position, it automatically turns ON/OFF the parking, license plate, tail, front fog lamps and headlamps in accordance with the ambient light. Sensitivity can be adjusted. For the details of the setting, Refer to EXL-19, "HEADLAMP : CONSULT Function (BCM - HEAD LAMP)".

Daytime running light system

Daytime running light system : system description


Daytime running light system : system description

System Description

The daytime light system is equipped with a daytime light control that activates the daytime lights when the engine is operating. If the parking brake is applied, the daytime lights will turn OFF. The daytime lights will turn ON when the parking brake is released.

OPERATION

The BCM monitors inputs from the parking brake switch and the combination switch (lighting and turn signal switch) to determine when to operate the daytime light system. The BCM sends a daytime light request to the IPDM E/R via the CAN communication lines. The IPDM E/R grounds the daytime light relay which in turn, provides power to the daytime lights.

Front fog lamp system

FRONT FOG LAMP SYSTEM : System Diagram

FRONT FOG LAMP SYSTEM : System Description


FRONT FOG LAMP SYSTEM : System Description

The front fog lamps are activated with the combination switch (lighting and turn signal switch). The lighting switch signal to the BCM is monitored with the BCM combination switch reading function. When the fog lamps are turned ON with the lighting switch, the BCM sends a front fog lamp request signal via CAN communication lines to the IPDM E/R. The IPDM E/R grounds the front fog lamp relay coil to activate the front fog lamps.

FRONT FOG LAMP OPERATION

When the lighting switch is in front fog lamp ON position and also in 1st or 2nd position or AUTO position (headlamp is ON), the BCM detects FR FOG ON and the HEAD LAMP 1, 2 ON or the AUTO LIGHT ON. The BCM sends a front fog lamp request ON signal via the CAN communication lines to the IPDM E/R. The IPDM E/R then turns ON the front fog lamp relay sending power to the front fog lamps.

Turn signal and hazard warning lamps.

TURN SIGNAL OPERATION

When the combination switch (lighting and turn signal switch) is in LH or RH turn position with the ignition switch in the ON position, the BCM receives input requesting the turn RH or turn LH lamps to illuminate. The BCM controls the turn signal power to the respective turn signal lamp. The BCM also sends a turn indicator signal ON request via the CAN communication lines to the combination meter. The combination meter then activates the appropriate turn signal indicator and audible buzzer.

HAZARD LAMP OPERATION

When the hazard switch is in the ON position, the BCM receives input requesting the hazard lamps illuminate.

The BCM controls the turn signal power to both the LH and RH turn signal lamps. The BCM sends a hazard indicator signal ON request via the CAN communication lines to the combination meter. The combination meter then activates both the LH and RH turn signal indicators and audible buzzer.

Parking, license plate and tail lamps

PARKING, LICENSE PLATE AND TAIL LAMPS OPERATION


PARKING, LICENSE PLATE AND TAIL LAMPS OPERATION

When the lighting switch is in 1st or 2nd position, BCM detects the LIGHTING SWITCH 1st or 2nd POSITION ON. The BCM sends a parking light ON request via the CAN communication lines to the IPDM E/R. The IPDM E/R then activates the tail lamp relay which sends power to the parking and instrument illumination circuits.

EXTERIOR LAMP BATTERY SAVER CONTROL

With the combination switch (lighting and turn signal switch) in the 1st or 2nd position and the ignition switch is turned from ON or ACC to OFF, the battery saver feature is activated.

Under this condition, the exterior lamps remain illuminated for a period of time unless the lighting switch position is changed. If the lighting switch position is changed, then the exterior lamps are turned off.

COMBINATION SWITCH READING FUNCTION


COMBINATION SWITCH READING FUNCTION

Description

NOTE:


NOTE:

BCM reads the status of the combination switch at 60 ms intervals when BCM is controlled at low power consumption control mode.

Operation Example


Operation Example

In the following operation example, the combination of the status signals of the combination switch is replaced as follows: INPUT 1 - 5 to “1 - 5” and OUTPUT 1 - 5 to “A - E”.

Example 1: When a switch (TAIL LAMP) is turned ON


Example 2: When some switches (TURN RH, TAIL LAMP) are turned ON


Wiper intermittent dial position

BCM judges the wiper intermittent dial 1 - 7 by the status of INT VOLUME 1, 2 and 3 switches.
