U3000 MERCURY Tech Notes

DTC U3000:42 (Control Module: General Memory Failure) - This DTC sets if the PSCM detects an internal memory data error during the data plausibility check.
DTC 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.
DTC U3000:49 (Control Module: Internal Electronic Failure) - If at any time during normal operation the PSCM detects an internal hardware error, DTC U3000:49 is set.
DTC U3000:4B (Control Module: Over Temperature) - This DTC sets if the PSCM detects an internal over temperature condition. Steering assist is reduced to protect the EPAS electronics. Steering assist returns to the normal operating level when the system has cooled down.
DTC U3000:53 (Control Module: Deactivated) - This DTC sets if the PSCM detects an internal error which causes a permanent de-activation which is not recoverable with an ignition cycle.
DTC U3000:56 (Control Module: Invalid/Incomplete Configuration) - This DTC sets if the PSCM detects a mismatch of data structure in the non-volatile memory.
DTC U3000:96 (Control Module: Component Internal Failure) - This DTC sets if a fault causes the EPAS to enter a failure mode.

U3000 Mercury 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. This test generates a RVC for a new PSCM when directed to do so from pinpoint test. A RVC is required to order a new PSCM and to document billing for payment.
