Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Steering Angle Sensor Unusual Bank Angle Detected (C1440)

DESCRIPTION

If the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid) determines that the vehicle is being driven at a steep bank angle, the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid) stores DTC C1440 while VSC operation is temporarily disabled. It is not a malfunction if the system and sensor circuits are normal and if the normal VSC operation resumes, which automatically clears DTC C1440, after the vehicle is returned to a normal position.

HINT:

DTC C1440 and the yaw rate and acceleration sensor (airbag sensor assembly) DTC are stored when the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid) determines that the vehicle is being driven at a steep bank angle and either of the following conditions is met:

  • The yaw rate and acceleration sensor (airbag sensor assembly) is installed at an angle.
  • The yaw rate and acceleration sensor (airbag sensor assembly) signal output is stuck.

System Description
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION 1. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION HINT: The skid control ECU is built into the hydraulic brake booster. (a) ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) The ABS helps prevent the wheels from locking when the brakes are applied firmly or when braking on a slippery surface. (b) Multi-terrain Anti-lock ...

Cruise Control Switch Circuit
DESCRIPTION This circuit sends signals to the ECM depending on the cruise control main switch condition. The battery supplies the positive (+) battery voltage to the cruise control main switch. Then terminal CCS of the ECM receives the voltage as the signal according to the switch condition. ...

System Voltage Circuit Short to Ground or Open (P056014)
DESCRIPTION The battery supplies power to the ECM even when the ignition switch is off. This power allows the ECM to store data such as DTC history, freeze frame data and fuel trim values. If the battery voltage falls below a minimum level, the ECM data is cleared and the ECM determines that ...
