Second generation PS (2014-2018) / Kia Soul 2014-2018 PS Service Manual / Brake System / ESC(Electronic Stability Control) System / Failure Diagnosis

1.
In principle, ESC and TCS controls are prohibited in case of ABS failure.
2.
When ESC or TCS fails, only the failed system control is prohibited.
3.
However, when the solenoid valve relay should be turned off in case of ESC failure, refer to the ABS fail-safe.
4.
Information on ABS fail-safe is identical to the fail-safe in systems where ESC is not installed.
Memory of Fail Code
1.
It keeps the code as far as the backup lamp power is connected. (O)
2.
It keeps the code regardless of the HECU power status but until the code is deleted. (X)
Failure Checkup
1.
Initial checkup is performed immediately after the HECU power on.
2.
Valve relay checkup is performed immediately after the IG2 ON.
3.
It executes the checkup all the time while the IG2 power is on.
4.
Initial checkup is made in the following cases.
(1)
When no failure is detected
(2)
When ABS and ESC are not in control.
(3)
Initial checkup is not made after ECU power on.
(4)
If the vehicle speed is over 5 mph(8 km/h) when the brake lamp switch is off.
(5)
When the vehicle speed is over 24.8 mph(40 km/h).
5.
Though, it keeps on checkup even if the brake lamp switch is on.
6.
When performing ABS or ESC control before the initial checkup, stop the initial checkup and wait for the HECU power input again.
7.
Judge failure in the following cases.
(1)
When the power is normal.
(2)
From the point in which the vehicle speed reaches 4.9 mph(8 km/h) after HECU power on.
Countermeasures In Fail
1.
Shut the system down and perform the following actions and wait for HECU power OFF.
2.
Turn the valve relay off depending on the failure situation.
3.
Do not perform any ABS/TCS/ESC functions until normal operating condition is restored.
Warning Lamp On
1.
ABS warning lamp turns on when ABS is malfunctioning.
2.
ESC function/ warning lamp turns on when ESC is malfunctioning.
When power voltage and valve relay voltage are abnormal, input/output related failure judgment is not made.
Standard Flow of Diagnostic Troubleshooting

Notes With Regard To Diagnosis
The phenomena listed in the following table are not abnormal.
Phenomenon
Explanation
System check sound
When starting the engine, a thudding sound can sometimes be heard coming
from inside the engine compartment. This is because the system operation
check is being performed.
ABS operation sound
1.
Sound of the motor inside the ABS hydraulic unit operation (whine).
2.
Sound is generated along with vibration of the brake pedal (scraping).
3.
When ABS operates, sound is generated from the vehicle chassis due to
repeated brake application and release
(Thump : suspension; squeak: tires)
ABS operation (Long braking distance)
For road surfaces such as snow-covered and gravel roads, the braking distance for vehicles with ABS can sometimes be longer than that for other vehicles. Accordingly, advise the customer to drive safely on such roads by lowering the vehicle speed.
Diagnosis detection conditions can vary depending on the diagnosis code. When checking the trouble symptom after
the diagnosis code has been erased, ensure that the requirements listed in "Comment" are met.

During ABS operation, the brake pedal may vibrate or may not be able to be depressed. Such phenomena are due to intermittent changes in hydraulic pressure inside the brake line to prevent the wheels from locking and is not an abnormality.

Detecting condition
Trouble Symptoms
Possible Cause
Brake operation varies depending on driving conditions and road surface conditions, so diagnosis can be difficult. However if a normal DTC is displayed, check the following probable cause. When the problem is still occurring, replace the ESC control module.
-
Faulty power source circuit
-
Faulty wheel speed sensor circuit
-
Faulty hydraulic circuit for leakage
-
Faulty HECU
