2.

Length of window reversing (except holding the auto-up switch)

When jamming is detected within the range between 4mm and 250mm from the top of the B pillar

→ the window is pulled down to 300mm from the top of the B pillar.

When jamming is detected within the range of over 250mm from the top of the B pillar.

→ the window is pulled down to the lowest position if the total length of jammed object plus 50mm is below the window’s lowest position.

3.

The length of window moving downward (holding the auto-up switch)

When jamming is detected while pulling the auto-up switch.

→ Window moves downward by 25mm from jamming position

Auto-up function is not available for 5 seconds after the above operation.

(3)

If initialize the safety power window in jamming status, could occur below conditions.

Safety function is not available

(4)

Window position memorizing hall sensor is used to identify the window position and motor operation direction. ECU detects the uppermost position of the window and sets the position as ‘0’

(5)

ECU is deinitialized if the following conditions are met. After deinitialization process, Auto-up and safety function are not activated.

Deinitialization conditions

a.

Repeating window downward movement 15 times in a row.

b.

Power supply is suspended while the motor is in operation.

c.

Driver seat door opens, IGN Off with the window glass positioned in Hard Stop -> IGN On within 2 seconds -> within 5 seconds with IGN On, entering manual down switch signal 3 times -> Deinitialization completed (if power is not on in 2 seconds, or the operation to be performed in 5 seconds, the deinitialization process shall be repeated from the beginning.)

2.

Initializing of fail safe mode

Prevention of overheated motorSoftware overheating prevention function is used to prevent the motor from overheating (but, EEPROM data shall be saved in ECU).

(1)

If the window moved by compulsion and motor have a problem, power window switch could be entering the fail safe mode for user’s safety.
