Toyota Avalon (XX50) 2019-2022 Service & Repair Manual: Brake Switch "B" Circuit Short to Battery (P070312)

Toyota Avalon (XX50) 2019-2022 Service & Repair Manual / Engine / 2gr-fks Engine Control / Sfi System / Brake Switch "B" Circuit Short to Battery (P070312)

DESCRIPTION

The stop light switch assembly is part of a duplex system that transmits two signals: STP and ST1-. These two signals are used by the ECM to monitor whether or not the brake system is working properly. This DTC indicates that the stop light switch assembly is remaining on. When the stop light switch assembly remains on during "STOP and GO" driving, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the stop light switch assembly. The ECM store this DTC.

Brake Switch "B" Circuit Short to Battery

The stop light switch assembly remains on even when the vehicle repeats 5 cycles of STOP (less than 3 km/h [1.86 mph]) and GO (30 km/h [18.65 mph] or more) (2 trip detection logic).

  • Short in stop light switch assembly circuit
  • Stop light switch assembly
  • ECM

SAE Code: P0724

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

This DTC indicates that the stop light switch assembly is remaining on. When the stop light switch assembly remains on during "STOP and GO" driving, the ECM interprets this as a fault in the stop light switch assembly, stores this DTC. The vehicle must STOP (less than 3 km/h [1.86 mph]) and GO (30 km/h [18.65 mph] or more) 5 times during 2 driving cycles, in order to detect a malfunction.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

  1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).
  3. Turn the Techstream on.
  4. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).
  5. Turn the engine switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.
  6. Turn the engine switch on (IG).
  7. Turn the Techstream on.
  8. Wait 5 seconds [A].
  9. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [B].
  10. Read the pending DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  11. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.
  12. Input the DTC: P070312.
  13. Check the DTC judgment result.

    • If the judgment result is ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.
    • If the judgment result is INCOMPLETE, perform steps [C] through [E].
  14. Start the engine [C].
  15. Accelerate the vehicle to 30 km/h (18.65 mph) or more, depress the brake pedal and decelerate the vehicle to 3 km/h (1.86 mph) or less [D]. Repeat step [D] 5 times.

    CAUTION:

    When performing the confirmation driving pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

  16. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [E].

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

Inspect the fuses for circuits related to this system before performing the following procedure.

HINT:

  • Using the Techstream, the Data List item "Stop Light SW" can be read.

    Click here

  • Read freeze frame data using the Techstream. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE

1.

READ VALUE USING TECHSTREAM (STOP LIGHT SW)

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
