RETAINED ACCESSORY POWER (RAP) DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
SERIAL DATA CONTROL OF RETAINED ACCESSORY POWER (RAP)
The class 2 modules receive the power mode message from the body control module (BCM) over the serial data circuits, indicating when the retained
accessory power (RAP) power mode is current. The BCM monitors the ignition switch position, battery condition and passenger compartment doors
status to determine whether RAP should be initiated. The modules then support the operation of the systems under their control as required by their
RAP power mode operation.
RAP will end when one of the following conditions is met:
The BCM receives an input indicating the opening of any compartment door.
The BCM internal timer for the RAP expires after approximately 10 minutes.
The BCM detects a decrease in battery capacity below a prescribed limit.
The BCM then sends a serial data power mode message Off-Awake ending the RAP function.
The class 2 RAP functions are:
The power windows
RELAY CONTROL OF RETAINED ACCESSORY POWER (RAP)
The body control module (BCM) keeps the retained accessory power (RAP) relay energized during all power modes, except Off-Awake.
