Hyundai Santa Fe (TM): Motor Driven Power Steering - Steering SystemHyundai Santa Fe (TM): Motor Driven Power Steering

Description and operation

Description
MDPS (Motor Dirven Power Steering) system uses an electric motor to assist the steering force and it is an engine operation independent steering system.
MDPS control module controls the motor operation according to information received from the each sensor and CAN (Controller Area Network), resulting in a more precise and timely control of steering assist than conventional engine-driven hydraulic systems,
MDPS system inspection is possible for each component, but replacement is possible only for partial units, and other parts should not be disassembled.

Cautions to be taken when handling the MDPS (Motor Driven Power Steering)
Failure occurs due to internal damage because of the drop of and shock and excessive external force on the new partial component.
→ Be cautious of shock on the partial component and replace the damaged part (due to drop, etc.) with a new one.
When fastening the steering, excessive impact may result in twisting the center point of the torque sensor.
When removing/installing the connector the wiring may be damaged (deformed) by excessive external force.
Be cautious when storing and replacing the partial components under the abnormal temperature and humidity conditions.

The following phenomena are not malfunctions when the MDPS warning lamp is not lit.
There is no auxiliary steering force temporarily during the MDPS system self-diagnosis time (about 2 seconds) immediately after the engine starts, but this is not a malfunction.
There is noise due to relay connection when the engine is on or off, but this is a normal operation sound.
There is noise caused by motor rotation when operating the steering wheel in a stationary or low-speed driving state, but this is a normal operating sound.
MDPS(Motor Driven Power Steering) Handling precautions
1.
A failure may occur due to the internal damage when a new partial part is dropped, impacted or excessive external load is applied.
→ If a partial part is impacted or is dropped, replace it with a new part.
2.
If excessive impact is applied when assembling the steering wheel, center point of the torque sensor may be warped.
→ Caution is needed when tightening by excessive impact.
3.
Be careful for the damage to the wiring due to deformation, when detaching/attaching the contactor or excessive external force is applied.
→ Excessive insertion of the connector or using after removal is prohibited.
4.
Caution is needed for partial part storage and replacement work under abnormal condition of the temperature and humidity.
