Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Dtc Check / Clear

DTC CHECK / CLEAR

HINT:

  • DTCs which are stored in the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) can be displayed on the Techstream. The Techstream can display the current, pending and permanent DTCs.
  • If a malfunction is detected during the current driving cycle, current and permanent DTCs are stored.
  • Current DTCs can be cleared by using the Techstream. However, permanent DTCs cannot be cleared using either of these two methods.
  • After clearing current DTCs using the Techstream, permanent DTCs can be cleared when the system is determined to be normal for the relevant DTCs and then the universal trip is performed. The driving pattern to obtain a normal judgment is described under the "Confirmation Driving Pattern" for the respective DTC.
