SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. UNLOCK OPERATION CONDITIONS FOR STEERING LOCK

(a) When the following condition is met, the unlock operation is performed.

  • The engine switch is on (ACC) or on (IG).

    HINT:

    When the engine switch is turned on (ACC) or on (IG) and the key and certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) are verified, the steering is unlocked.

(b) When any of the following conditions are met, key verification is performed.

  • The engine switch is pressed.
  • The brake pedal is depressed so that the engine can be started.
  • 30 seconds have elapsed after opening and closing a door.

HINT:

  • Key verification occurs when the code emitted from the key and the code stored by the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) are compared to check that they match.
  • Certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) verification occurs when the L code is verified while the engine is being started or the engine switch is being pushed. The steering lock ECU (steering lock actuator or UPR bracket assembly) uses the L code to determine whether the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) is authorized.

2. LOCK OPERATION CONDITIONS FOR STEERING LOCK

(a) When all of the following conditions are met and the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) has been verified, the lock operation is performed.

  • The engine switch is off.
