Description / Abstract:


This standard applies to Electrical/Electronic (E/E) components for passenger or commercial vehicles and trucks. The standard describes the environmental and durability tests for E/E components based on mounting location.


This standard specifies Environmental/Durability requirements and Analysis/Development/Validation (A/D/V) activities for E/E components that are used in a vehicle environment to ensure reliability over a life time. This standard includes tests to ensure customer satisfaction of vehicular E/E component performance over a life time of customer usage and exposure to various environmental conditions, such as Vibration, Shock, Temperature, Humidity, Electrical Stresses, and other forces that may occur during manufacturing and shipping. This standard applies to any component that connects to or is a part of the vehicle electrical system, unless covered by a component-specific test standard, a mechanical horn or incandescent bulb for example. For example, this applies to a stand-alone component that contains electrical content (such as a Body Control Module). This could also be applied to an electrical/electronic component that resides inside a larger component or assembly (such as a headlamp leveling control motor inside a headlamp assembly).
