Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Excessive Brake Pedal Travel (No Fluid Leaks and No Air in System)

DESCRIPTION

Depending on the malfunction, the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) prohibits operation of the electronically controlled brake system to protect components and prevent incorrect operation when DTCs are stored.

If the switching solenoid is disabled due to prohibition of the electronically controlled brake system, the response of the brake pedal changes and braking performance is reduced.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

After replacing the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly), perform linear solenoid valve offset learning, ABS holding solenoid valve learning, yaw rate and acceleration sensor zero point calibration and system information memorization after performing "Reset Memory".
