Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Short in Telephone Antenna Circuit (B1573,B15CB)

DESCRIPTION

These DTCs are stored when the DCM (Telematics Transceiver) detects an open or a short in the telephone and GPS antenna assembly (for Roof Side) circuit. The DCM (Telematics Transceiver) oscillates and receives 824 - 894 MHz or 1850 - 1990 MHz radio-frequency through the telephone and GPS antenna assembly (for Roof Side).

DTC No.
