System Description

INPUT/OUTPUT SIGNAL CHART

*1: The ECM determines the start signal status by the signals of engine speed


*1: The ECM determines the start signal status by the signals of engine speed and battery voltage.

*2: This signal is sent to ECM through CAN communication line.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

ECM controls cooling fan speed corresponding to vehicle speed, engine coolant temperature, refrigerant pressure, air conditioner ON signal. Then control system has 4-step control [HIGH/MIDDLE/LOW/OFF].

Cooling Fan Operation

Cooling Fan Relay Operation


Cooling Fan Relay Operation
