Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Open Circuit in Main Relay 1 (C1311,C1312)

DESCRIPTION

The main relay supplies power to the switching solenoid and the linear solenoid.

The main relay remains on for approximately 2 minutes after the power switch is turned off and the input of brake pedal operation signals stops, and supplies power to the system to keep it ready to operate.

DTC No.

Open Circuit in Main Relay 1

1

Either of the following is detected:

  • When the power switch is on (READY):

    The BS terminal voltage is less than 3.5 V for 0.05 seconds or more, when the IG1 terminal voltage is 9.5 V or more and operation of the main relay is requested.

  • When the power switch is off:

    The BS terminal voltage is less than 3.5 V for 0.05 seconds or more, when operation of the main relay is requested.

  • Open or short in main relay circuit
  • Skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly)

Comes on

  • INF Code 1: SAE Code C12FA
  • Electronically controlled brake system DTC

C1312

Short Circuit in Main Relay 1

2

The BS terminal voltage is 3.5 V or more for 4.5 seconds or more, when operation of the main relay is requested.

  • Short in main relay circuit
  • Main relay internal stuck
  • Skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly)

Comes on

  • INF Code 2: SAE Code C12FB
  • Electronically controlled brake system DTC

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) monitors the voltage at BS terminal.

When the main relay is instructed to be on and the voltage at BS terminal is within the range of an open circuit malfunction (voltage is practically equal to that when off), or when the main relay is instructed to be off and the voltage of the BS terminal is within the range of a short circuit malfunction (voltage is practically equal to that when on), an open circuit or short circuit is judged respectively and the MIL is illuminated and stores a DTC.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

  1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the power switch on (IG).
  3. Turn the Techstream on.
  4. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).
  5. Turn the power switch off.
  6. Turn the power switch on (IG).
  7. Turn the Techstream on.
  8. Wait 4.5 seconds.
  9. Enter the following menus: Chassis / ABS/VSC/TRAC / Trouble Codes.
  10. Read the DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  11. If the DTCs are not output, perform a universal trip and check for permanent DTCs.

    Click here

    HINT:

    • If a permanent DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If no permanent DTCs are output, the system is normal.
