Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0893582A2] The method involves controlling a coolant pump of a combustion engine, whereby a heat quantity to be conducted is determined from at least one motor operating parameter, and a pulse width modulation of a control signal for a nominal number of revolutions of the coolant pump is produced in dependence on the heat quantity. The signal is examined for errors through comparisons with a predefined nominal signal range. If an error of the signal is determined, an emergency program for the coolant pump is performed, otherwise the number of revolutions of the coolant pump is regulated in response to the produced signal.
