Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Low or High Power Supply Voltage (C1241)

DESCRIPTION

If a malfunction is detected in the power supply circuit, the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) power source voltage drops, or there is insufficient voltage to operate the main relay, the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) will store these DTCs.

If the auxiliary battery voltage is temporarily low, these DTCs may be stored.

HINT:

DTC C1256 (Accumulator Low Pressure) may also be memorized if there is a drop in power source voltage.

DTC No.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

  • When the voltage at VM1, VM2, IG1, IG2 or BS drops due to a malfunction in the auxiliary battery and hybrid control system (charging circuit), the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) judges that there is a drop in the power supply and illuminates the MIL and stores a DTC.
