Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Communication Error from ECM to VSC Invalid Serial Data Received (P163181)

Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual / Cruise Control / Dynamic Radar Cruise Control System(for 2gr-fks) / Communication Error from ECM to VSC Invalid Serial Data Received (P163181)

DESCRIPTION

The ECM sends signals such as dynamic radar cruise control operation signals, brake operation demand signals and buzzer operation demand signals to the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid)*1 or skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)*2 when the dynamic radar cruise control is operating. Therefore, if the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid)*1 or skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)*2 detects a communication error with the ECM, it sends a malfunction signal back to the ECM.

DTC No.
