Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Abnormal Brake Pedal Response on First Depression

DESCRIPTION

If the vehicle has been stopped without opening or closing the driver door for a long period of time, the electronically controlled brake system will not be ready and sufficient fluid pressure may not be stored in the accumulator. In this case, the brake pedal response may not be the same as usual the first time the brake pedal is depressed. This is not a malfunction.
