Fuel Pump Control Module (FPCM)

Description

Installed on the right hand side of the fuel tank, the Fuel Pump Control Module (FPCM) controls the DC motor mounted inside the low pressure fuel pump.

The module compares instantaneous fuel pressure measured by the fuel pressure sensor (FPS) with target fuel pressure provided by the ECM and generates the desired target fuel pressure by controlling the fuel pump motor and regulating fuel flow rate in the low pressure fuel line between the low and high pressure fuel pumps.

Operation

Operation

  1. The ECM provides target fuel pressure to the FPCM via CAN.
  2. The FPS provides the FPCM with actual pressure of the low pressure fuel line between the low and high pressure fuel pumps, and the FPCM forwards this to the ECM. Also, the FPCM diagnoses faults in the FPCM, fuel pump motor and FPS and then provides the diagnostic information to the ECM.
  3. The FPCM compares the actual fuel pressure measured by the FPS with the target fuel pressure provided by the ECM and controls the voltage provided to the low pressure fuel pump motor. The FPCM keeps regulating the fuel flow rate by controlling the low pressure fuel pump, depending on engine speed (rpm) and vehicle loads.

  2. Switch "OFF" the ignition and disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
  3. Remove the rear seat cushion.

     

    (Refer to Body - "Rear Seat Assembly")

  4. Fuel pump service cover (A).

Warning

Warning

  • When reinstalling a protective cover for a fuel pump, remove the existing butyl tape and apply a new one.
  • Before assembling the protective cover, ensure that the temperature of the butyl is about 30ºC using a hair dryer or a heat gun.

Warning

When installing the protective cover for the fuel pump, pay attention to the installation direction of the grommet and the protective cover.

  • The arrow (A) should be in the forward direction of the car.
  • Align the bulging part of the vehicle body (B) with the hole of the protective cover.
  • Align the bulging part of the grommet (C) with the bulging part of the protective cover.
  1. Remove the fuel pump control module connector (A).
  2. Disconnect the fuel pressure sensor connector (B).
  3. Disconnect the fuel tank pressure sensor (C).
  4. Disconnect the fuel feed tube quick-connector (D).

  1. Remove the fuel pump plate cover (B) by using the special service tool (A) (SST NO.:09310-B8100).

  1. Remove the fuel pump (A).

Installation

Installation

  1. Install in the reverse order of removal.

Warning

Carefully note the fuel pump direction during installation.

Inspection

  1. Connect the KDS to the vehicle's data link connector (DLC).
  2. Check for DTCs and repair any according to the DTC guide.
  3. Check the power supply voltage provided to the fuel pressure sensor (FPS).

Specification: 5V

  1. Check the voltage provided to the fuel pressure sensor (FPS) at idle.

Specification: 1.9 - 3.2 V

  1. Check the fuel pressure in the low fuel line.
