CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • When replacing the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid), perform calibration (See page ). Inspect the fuses for circuits related to this system before performing ).
  • Inspect the fuses for circuits related to this system before performing the following inspection procedure.

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK THAT SKID CONTROL ECU CONNECTOR SECURELY CONNECTED

(a) Check the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid) connector connection.

OK:

The connector is securely connected.

NG

CONNECT CONNECTOR TO ECU CORRECTLY

OK

2.

CHECK DTC

(a) Check for DTCs (See page ). Result ).

3.

INSPECT BATTERY

(a) Inspect the battery voltage (See page Standard voltage: ).

Standard voltage:

11 to 14 V

NG

CHECK CHARGING SYSTEM

OK

4.

CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.

(b) Depress the brake pedal 20 times or more (until the pedal reaction feels light and pedal stroke becomes longer).

(c) Check the amount of fluid in the brake reservoir.

HINT:

When the ignition switch is turned to ON, brake fluid is sent to the accumulator and the fluid level decreases by approximately 5 mm (0.197 in.) from the level when the ignition switch is off (normal).

OK:

Brake fluid level is normal.

NG

CHECK AND REPAIR BRAKE FLUID LEAKAGE

OK

5.

CHECK CAN COMMUNICATION SYSTEM

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(d) Turn the Techstream on.

(e) Select CAN Bus Check from the System Selection Menu screen and follow the prompts on the screen to inspect the CAN bus (See page OK: OK: ).

OK:

CAN Bus Check indicates no malfunctions in CAN communication.

NG

GO TO CAN COMMUNICATION SYSTEM (HOW TO PROCEED WITH TROUBLESHOOTING)

OK

6.

PERFORM ACTIVE TEST USING TECHSTREAM (BRAKE WARNING LIGHT)

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(d) Turn the Techstream on.

(e) Enter the following menus: ABS/VSC/TRAC / Active Test.

(f) According to the display on the Techstream, perform the Active Test.
