Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Abnormal Leak in Accumulator (C1391)

DESCRIPTION

This DTC is stored if internal or external brake fluid leaks are detected due to improper sealing in the brake actuator (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) or brake booster pump assembly. Internal leaks are suspected if the pump motor operates frequently without braking.

DTC No.

Note

C1391

Abnormal Leak in Accumulator

351

Either of the following is detected:

  • When the brake pedal is not depressed and the pump motor is operating, the accumulator pressure sensor value does not increase a certain number of times.
  • When the brake pedal is not depressed and the pump motor is not operating, the accumulator pressure sensor decrease rate exceeds a certain threshold a certain number of times.
  • Brake fluid leaks
  • Brake actuator (brake booster with master cylinder assembly)

    (Malfunctioning internal seal etc.)

  • Brake booster pump assembly

    (Accumulator internal gas pressure decrease, etc.)

(b) Perform the Active Test and operate the linear solenoid (SLR) in the brake actuator (brake booster with master cylinder assembly).

(c) Check that the servo pressure output value does not increase when performing the Active Test.

OK:

The servo pressure output value does not increase when performing the Active Test.

HINT:

If the servo pressure output value increases, an internal brake fluid leak in the brake actuator (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) is suspected.

Result

Proceed to

The servo pressure output value increases.

A

The servo pressure output value does not increase.

3.

CHECK FOR FLUID LEAK

(a) Check for brake fluid leaks in the line from the brake booster pump assembly to the brake booster with master cylinder assembly.

Click here

OK:

There are no brake fluid leaks.

OK

REPLACE BRAKE BOOSTER WITH MASTER CYLINDER ASSEMBLY AND BRAKE BOOSTER PUMP ASSEMBLY
