If the condition that caused the fault to set is still present, the SCCM will switch the steering wheel heating element output off within 1 second.
SCCM U210A:11 Temperature Sensor: Circuit Short To Ground This DTC only sets when the heated steering wheel is commanded on and the SCCM detects less than 0.794 volts on the temperature sensor input circuit for greater than 1 second, indicating a short to ground. When this fault occurs, the steering wheel heating element output is disabled until the ignition is cycled.
SCCM U210A:13 Temperature Sensor: Circuit Open This DTC sets when the heated steering wheel is commanded on and the SCCM detects voltage greater than or equal to 4.986 volts on the temperature sensor reference circuit for more than 1 second. indicating an open circuit or an open temperature sensor. However, extreme cold temperatures below - 58 °F (- 50 °C) can also cause this DTC to set. When this fault occurs, the steering wheel heating element output is disabled until the ignition is cycled.
