Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Open in Stop Switch Circuit (C1425,P0573)

DESCRIPTION

The skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) detects the brake operating conditions through a signal transmitted by the stop light switch assembly.

The skid control ECU incorporates a circuit to detect an open circuit. This DTC is output when an open circuit is detected in the stop light signal input line.

DTC No.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

When the voltage at terminal STP is outside the range of that when the stop light switch assembly is on or the range of that when the stop light switch assembly is off for a certain amount of time, the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) judges that there is an open in the stop light switch assembly circuit and illuminates the MIL and stores a DTC.

Also, if the voltage at terminal STP is always within the range of that when the stop light switch assembly is on after the vehicle is driven at a certain speed or more and stopped a specific number of times, the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) judges that the stop light switch assembly is stuck on and illuminates the MIL 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 (READY).
  7. Turn the Techstream on.
  8. Decelerate the vehicle from a speed of 30 km/h (19 mph) or more to 3 km/h (2 mph) 10 times or more.
  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.

    HINT:

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