  • U3000:42 (Control Module: General Memory Failure) - This Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) sets if the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) detects an internal memory data error during the data plausibility check.
  • U3000:46 (Control Module: Calibration/Parameter Memory Failure) - This DTC sets if the PSCM detects an internal calibration data error during the data plausibility check.

    |Code U3000 Lincoln Description

    The Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) monitors various inputs and outputs of the Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) system in order to keep the system operating at peak capacity. Information provided by sensors (steering torque, vehicle speed, vehicle travel distance, etc.) are all compared to programmed and learned information. Likewise, outputs like the motor and steering rack (travel) are tested against programmed and learned information. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when the PSCM detects a Control Module Failure Or Erratic.
