Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Diagnosis System

DIAGNOSIS SYSTEM

1. DESCRIPTION

The ECM stores DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) when trouble occurs on the vehicle. The diagnosis system allows reading of DTCs stored in the ECM when a the Techstream is connected to the DLC3 (Data Link Connector 3). If the CRUISE MAIN indicator light does not come on after a DTC check, it means that a malfunction has occurred in the cruise control system. Use a the Techstream or SST to check for DTCs.

2. CHECK DLC3

(a) The ECM uses ISO 9141-2 for data communication. The terminal arrangement

(a) The ECM uses ISO 9141-2 for data communication. The terminal arrangement of the DLC3 complies with SAE J1962 and matches the ISO 9141-2 format.

HINT:

If the Techstream display shows "UNABLE TO CONNECT TO VEHICLE" after connecting the Techstream to the DLC3 and turning the ignition to the ON position, there is a problem in either the vehicle or the Techstream itself.

  • If communication is normal when connecting the tester to another vehicle, inspect the DLC3 on the original vehicle.
  • If communication is still not possible when connecting the tester to another vehicle, it suggests the problem exists in the tester. In this case, consult the Service Department listed in the tester's instruction manual.

3. CHECK INDICATOR

(a) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

Cruise Control Indicator Light

(b) Check that the CRUISE MAIN indicator light comes on when the cruise control main switch ON-OFF button is pushed on, and that the indicator light goes off when the ON-OFF button is pushed off.

HINT:

If there is a problem with the ON/OFF illumination of the indicator light, inspect the cruise main indicator light circuit (See page ).

HINT:

HINT:

If a malfunction occurs in the vehicle speed sensor, stop light switch assembly or other related parts while cruise control driving, the ECM actuates AUTO CANCEL of the cruise control. Then the power indicator turn off, the warning light illuminates and the vehicle display indicates a malfunction, to inform the driver of the malfunction. At the same time, data of the malfunction is stored as a diagnostic trouble code (DTC).

Data List / Active Test
DATA LIST / ACTIVE TEST 1. DATA LIST HINT: Using the Techstream to read the Data List allows the values or states of switches, sensors, actuators and other items to be read without removing any parts. This non-intrusive inspection can be very useful because intermittent conditions or signals ...

Ambient Temperature Sensor Circuit (B1412/12)
DESCRIPTION The ambient temperature sensor is installed in front of the condenser to detect the ambient temperature which is used to control the air conditioning system AUTO mode. This sensor is connected to the air conditioning amplifier assembly and detects fluctuations in the ambient tempe ...

Pressure Control Solenoid "A" Performance (Shift Solenoid Valve SL1) (P0746)
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION The ECM uses the vehicle speed signal and signals from the transmission revolution sensors (NT, SP2) to detect the actual gear (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th gear). The ECM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical problems of t ...
