Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Check For Intermittent Problems

CHECK FOR INTERMITTENT PROBLEMS

CHECK FOR INTERMITTENT PROBLEMS

HINT:

A momentary interruption (open circuit) in the connectors and/or wire harnesses between the sensors and ECUs can be detected using the Data List function of the Techstream.

(a) Turn the power switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the power switch on (IG).

(d) Turn the Techstream on.

(e) Follow the directions on the Techstream to display the Data List and select areas where momentary interruptions should be monitored.

HINT:

  • A momentary interruption (open circuit) cannot be detected for 3 seconds after the power switch is turned on (IG) (initial check).
  • If Error remains displayed for one of the items on the Techstream, check for continuity between the ECU and the item for which Error is displayed.
  • If a momentary interruption occurs and Error is displayed on the Techstream, Error will remain displayed on the Techstream for 1 second after the circuit returns to normal.

(f) While observing the screen, gently jiggle the connectors or wire harnesses between the ECUs and sensors, or between ECUs.

OK:

Normal is displayed.

HINT:

If the display changes, this indicates that there has been a momentary interruption (open circuit) in the connector and/or wire harness. In this case, repair or replace the connectors and/or wire harnesses as one of them is faulty.
