Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: Power consumption control system

System Diagram

System Description


• IPDM E/R incorporates a power consumption control function that reduces the power consumption according to the vehicle status.

• IPDM E/R changes its status (control mode) with the sleep wake up signal received from BCM via CAN communication.

Normal mode (wake-up)

- CAN communication is normally performed with other control units.

- Individual unit control by IPDM E/R is normally performed.

Low power consumption mode (sleep)

- Low power consumption control is active.

- CAN transmission is stopped.


• IPDM E/R judges that the sleep-ready conditions are fulfilled when the ignition switch is OFF and none of the conditions below are present. Then it transmits a sleep-ready signal (ready) to BCM via CAN communication.

- Front wiper fail-safe operation

- Outputting signals to actuators

- Switches or relays operating

- Auto active test is starting

- Emergency OFF

- Output requests are being received from control units via CAN communication.

• IPDM E/R stops CAN communication and enters the low power consumption mode when it receives a sleep wake up signal (sleep) from BCM and the sleep-ready conditions are fulfilled.


• IPDM E/R changes from the low power consumption mode to the normal mode when it receives a sleep wake-up signal (wake up) from BCM or any of the following conditions is fulfilled. In addition, it transmits a sleep-ready signal (not-ready) to BCM via CAN communication to report the CAN communication start.

- Ignition switch ON

- An output request is received from a control unit via CAN communication.
