The TCM sends two randomly generated values to the ESM and the ESM is expected to answer with a value calculated based upon these two random numbers. The TCM commands the ESM to reset if one of the following conditions occurs: No answer received within a calibrated amount of time, received answer is incorrect and is the same as the previous answer or the received answer is incorrect and is not the same as the previous answer.
