Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Brake Switch "A" Circuit (P0571)

DESCRIPTION

Detection condition 1:
  • When the brake pedal is depressed, the stop light switch assembly outputs a signal to the ECM. When the ECM receives the signal, it cancels control of vehicle speed by the dynamic radar cruise control system. The fail-safe function operates to enable normal operation even if there is a malfunction in the stop light signal circuit. The cancellation condition occurs when voltage is applied to terminal STP. When the brake pedal is depressed, voltage is applied to terminal STP of the ECM through the STOP fuse and the stop light switch assembly, and the ECM turns the dynamic radar cruise control system off.
Detection condition 2:
  • The ECM receives the brake demand signal from the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly and transmits it to the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly). The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) receives a signal from the ECM and operates the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly). The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) operates the brake actuator assembly and illuminates the stop lights.

DTC No.

Brake Switch "A" Circuit

Condition 1:
  • While the vehicle speed is 36 km/h (22 mph) or more and the dynamic radar cruise control system is operating, voltage of STP terminal and that of ST1- terminal of ECM are less than 1 V for approximately 0.5 seconds or more.
Condition 2:
  • While the vehicle speed is 36 km/h (22 mph) or more and the dynamic radar cruise control system is operating, the ECM receives error signal from the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) for approximately 0.5 seconds or more.
Condition 1:
  • Stop light switch assembly
  • Harness or connector
  • ECM
Condition 2:
  • ECM
  • Vehicle stability control system

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK FOR DTCs (VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEM)

(a) Check for DTCs.

HINT:

When DTC P0571 (detection condition 2) is stored by the dynamic radar cruise control system, DTC C1380 is stored by the vehicle stability control system. Therefore, if DTC P0571 (detection condition 2) is stored, inspect the vehicle stability control system first.

CHECK FOR DTC (RADAR CRUISE1)

(a) Clear the DTCs.

Click here (b) Make sure that the DTC detection conditions are met.

(b) Make sure that the DTC detection conditions are met.

HINT:

If the detection conditions are not met, the system cannot detect the malfunction.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON.
  2. Turn the dynamic radar cruise control system on using the cruise control main switch (ON-OFF button).
  3. Drive the vehicle at 36 km/h (22 mph) or more for 1 second or more.

(c) Check for DTCs.
