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.
