Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: Stop Light Relay Circuit (C1A4B)

DESCRIPTION

The skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid)*1 or skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)*2 sends a stop light operation request signal to the stop light relay (stop light switch assembly). If the skid control ECU (master cylinder solenoid)*1 or skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)*2 detects a malfunction in the stop light relay circuit, the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly stores DTC C1A4B.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • When replacing the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly, always replace it with a new one. If a millimeter wave radar sensor assembly which was installed to another vehicle is used, the information stored in the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly will not match the information from the vehicle. As a result, a DTC may be stored.
  • If the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly has been replaced, be sure to perform millimeter wave radar sensor assembly adjustment.
