Left Cornering Lamp Circuit Malfunction

DTC B2590 54

Left Cornering Lamp Circuit High Temperature

DTC B2595 00

Right Cornering Lamp Circuit Malfunction

DTC B2595 54

Right Cornering Lamp Circuit High Temperature

Circuit/System Description

The cornering lamps are activated automatically at vehicle speeds below 40 km/h (25 MPH) when the turn signal/multifunction switch is placed in either the turn left or turn right positions and/or when the steering angle is changed from the straight-ahead position towards the side the vehicle is turning. When the headlamp control module detects that one of these operations has occurred, the headlamp control module sends a message via serial data to the left or right headlamp/cornering lamp control module. The appropriate headlamp/cornering lamp control module responds by applying battery voltage to the appropriate cornering lamp LED to illuminate the area that the vehicle is turning. The cornering lamps are deactivated automatically when the turn signal/multifunction switch is placed in the neutral position and/or the steering angle has returned in the straight-ahead position. The cornering lamps will not operate at vehicle speeds above 40 km/h (25 MPH).

Conditions for Running the DTC

  • Battery voltage must be between 9 - 16 V.
  • Ignition ON.
