Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Brake Warning Light Remains ON

DESCRIPTION

The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) is connected to the combination meter assembly via CAN communication.

If any of the following is detected, the brake warning light remains on:

  • The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) connector is disconnected from the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly).
  • The brake fluid level is insufficient.
  • EBD operation is not possible.
  • The vacuum inside the brake booster decreases.*
    • *: for 2GR-FKS
