Toyota Tacoma 2015-2018 Service Manual: System Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. TOUCH SWITCH OUTLINE

Touch switches are touch-sensitive (interactive) switches operated by touching the screen. When a switch is pressed, the outer film bends in to contact the inner glass at the pressed position. By doing this, the voltage ratio is measured and the pressed position is detected.

2. DISC PLAYER OUTLINE

2. DISC PLAYER OUTLINE

(a) A disc player uses a laser pickup to read digital signals recorded on a compact disc (CD). By converting the digital signals to analog, it can play music and audio.

CAUTION:

Do not look directly at the laser pickup because the disc player uses an invisible laser beam. Be sure to operate the player only as instructed.

NOTICE:

  • Do not disassemble any part of the disc player.
  • Do not apply oil to the disc player.
  • Do not insert anything but a disc into the disc player.

(b) Usable discs

(1) This player can play only audio CDs, CD-Rs (CD-Recordable) and CD-RWs (CD-ReWritable) that have any of the following marks:

(c) The following products may not be playable on your player.

(c) The following products may not be playable on your player.

  • SACD
  • dts CD
  • Copy-protected CD

(d) Precautions for use of discs

NOTICE:

  • CD-Rs and CD-RWs may not be played depending on the recording conditions or characteristics of the discs, or due to damage, dirt or deterioration caused by leaving the discs in the cabin for a long time.
  • Unfinalized CD-Rs and CD-RWs cannot be played.
  • CD-Rs and CD-RWs are more easily affected by a hot and humid environment than discs used for normal audio CDs. For this reason, some CD-Rs and CD-RWs may not be played.
  • If there are fingerprints or scratches on a disc, the disc may not be played or the disc may skip.
  • Some CD-Rs and CD-RWs may deteriorate if they are left in the cabin for a long time.
  • Keep CD-Rs and CD-RWs in an opaque case.
  • DualDiscs that combine DVD recorded material on one side with CD digital audio material on the other cannot be played.
  • Keep the discs away from dirt. Be careful not to damage the discs or leave fingerprints on them.
  • Hold discs by the outer edge and center hole with the label side up.
  • Leaving the disc exposed halfway out of the slot for a long time after pressing the disc eject button may cause deformation of the disc, making the disc unusable.
  • If discs have adhesive tape, stickers, CD labels or any traces of such labels attached, the discs may not be ejected or player malfunctions may result.
  • Keep the discs away from direct sunlight. (Exposure to direct sunlight may cause deformation of the disc, making the disc unusable.)
  • Do not use odd-shaped CDs because these may cause player malfunctions.
  • Do not use discs whose recording portion is transparent or translucent because they may not be inserted, ejected or played normally.
  • Use only 4.7 in. (12 cm) CDs.
  • Do not use 3 in. (8 cm) CDs either with or without adaptors.

HINT:

  • When it is cold or it is raining, if the windows mist up, mist and condensation may form in the player. In such cases, the CD may skip or stop in the middle of play. Ventilate or dehumidify the cabin for a while before using the player.
  • The CD may skip if the player experiences strong vibrations when the vehicle is driven on rough roads or similar uneven surfaces.

(e) Cleaning

NOTICE:

NOTICE:

Do not use a lens cleaner because it may cause a malfunction in the pickup portion of the player.

(1) If dirt is on the disc surface, wipe it clean with a soft dry cloth such as an eyeglass cleaner for plastic lenses from the inside to the outside in a radial direction.

NOTICE:

  • Pressing on the disc by hand or rubbing the disc with a hard cloth may scratch the disc surface.
  • Use of solvents such as record spray, antistatic agents, alcohol, benzine, thinners or a chemical cloth may cause damage to the disc, making the disc unusable.

5. RADIO DESCRIPTION

(a) Radio frequency band

(1) Radio broadcasts use the radio frequency bands shown in the table below.

(b) Service area

(b) Service area

(1) The service areas of AM and FM broadcasts are vastly different. Sometimes an AM broadcast can be received very clearly but an FM stereo broadcast cannot. FM stereo has the smallest service area, and is prone to pick up static and other types of interference such as noise.

Text in Illustration

*a

FM (Stereo)

*b

FM (Monaural)

*c

AM

(c) Radio reception problems

HINT:

In addition to static, other problems such as "phasing", "multipath" and "fade out" exist. These problems are not caused by electrical noise, but by the radio signal propagation method itself.

(1) Phasing

AM broadcasts are susceptible to electrical interference and another kind of interference called phasing. Occurring only at night, phasing is the interference created when a vehicle receives 2 radio wave signals from the same transmitter. One signal is reflected off the ionosphere and the other signal is received directly from the transmitter.

*a

Phasing

*b

Ionosphere

(2) Multipath

Multipath is a type of interference created when a vehicle receives 2 radio wave signals from the same transmitter. One signal is reflected off buildings or mountains and the other signal is received directly from the transmitter.

Text in Illustration

*a

Multipath

(3) Fade out

Fade out is caused by objects (buildings, mountains and other such large obstacles) that deflect away part of a signal, resulting in a weaker signal when the object is between the transmitter and vehicle. High frequency radio waves, such as FM broadcasts, are easily deflected by obstructions. Low frequency radio waves, such as AM broadcasts, are less likely to deflect.

*a

Fade Out

(d) Noise problem

Technicians must have a clear understanding about each customer's noise complaint. Use the following table to diagnose noise problems.

Radio Frequency

Noise Occurrence Condition

Presumable Cause

AM

Noise occurs in a specific area

Foreign noise

Noise occurs when listening to an intermittent broadcast

An identical program transmitted from multiple towers can cause noise where the signals overlap

Noise occurs only at night

Noise occurs while driving in a specified area

Multipath resulting from a change in FM frequency

6. "HD Radio" FUNCTION OUTLINE (w/ HD Radio Function)

(a) The "HD Radio" system is a radio system that broadcasts in the IBOC (In-Band On-Channel) form that the iBiquity Co. has developed. By expanding the bandwidth per channel of conventional FM/AM bands, digital audio and data signals are additionally transmitted.

"HD Radio" Technology manufactured under license from iBiquity Digital Corporation. U.S. and Foreign Patents. "HD Radio" and the HD and HD Radio logos are proprietary trademarks of iBiquity Digital Corp.

The information for the music currently being listened to is stored in the system and transmitted to the "iPod" connected to the system. The information transferred to the "iPod" can be used for purchasing the music through "iTunes" music store.

7. SDARS SYSTEM FUNCTION OUTLINE (w/ SDARS System)

(a) Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS) is a satellite digital radio broadcast provided by Sirius XM Radio Inc. The broadcast (pay-type) is performed through satellites and terrestrial repeater networks. Several unique channels are available, and even if a vehicle changes locations, the same information can be received without breaks. Information such as song names, broadcast station names, etc. can be received. Also, traffic information can be received and displayed on the audio screen.

NOTICE:

To receive audio-visual pay-type broadcasts, the customer must enter into a pay-type contract with XM Satellite Radio Inc. After entering into a contract, registration of an 8-digit XM Radio ID is necessary. Also, if parts are replaced, the XM Radio ID must be reregistered.

8. RBDS FUNCTION OUTLINE (w/ RBDS Function)
