Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: TRAC does not Operate

DESCRIPTION

When ABS, TRAC or VSC is operating, the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) blinks the slip indicator light to inform the driver that slippage occurred.

When in VSC off mode, or TRAC and VSC are disabled, the multi-information display in the combination meter assembly displays "Traction Control Turned Off" and the VSC OFF indicator light illuminates to inform the driver.

When a communication malfunction with the hybrid vehicle control ECU is detected, TRAC and VSC are disabled. Also when the system is malfunctioning, TRAC and VSC are disabled and the indicator lights of related systems illuminate.

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".
