C0176 CADILLAC - System Thermal Error
Tech notesThe C0176 code does not indicate that a malfunction has occurred. Rather that the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) had to limit current to the power steering motor to avoid thermal damage to the Power Steering System components.
C0176 Cadillac DescriptionThe Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) monitors the temperature of the power steering system. The PSCM uses voltage, current levels and input from an internal temperature sensor to calculate an estimated system temperature. If the PSCM detects a high system temperature event is occurring, the amount of assist is reduced to lower system temperature to prevent thermal damage to the power steering components.
