Toyota Camry (XV70): Brake System Control Module "A" System Voltage System Voltage Low (C137BA2)

DESCRIPTION

If a malfunction is detected in the power supply circuit, the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) stores this DTC and the fail-safe function prohibits ABS operation.

This DTC is stored when the +BS terminal voltage meets one of the DTC detection conditions due to a malfunction in the power supply or charging circuit such as the battery or alternator circuit, etc.

The DTC is cleared when the +BS terminal voltage returns to normal.

DTC No.

C137BA2

Brake System Control Module "A" System Voltage System Voltage Low

Any of the following is detected:

  1. The vehicle speed is 6 km/h (4 mph) or more and the +BS terminal voltage (soft low voltage) is less than 9.6 V for 1 second or more.
  2. The vehicle speed is 6 km/h (4 mph) or more and the +BS terminal voltage (hard low voltage) is less than 6.9 V for 1 second or more.
  3. The +BS terminal voltage is less than 6.7 V and the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) judges that power supply voltage is abnormal for 0.06 seconds or more.
  4. The vehicle speed is 15 km/h (9 mph) or more and the +BS terminal voltage is 9.6 V or more, the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) turns on more than one valve at the same time within a short period of time and the valve relay supply voltage drop exceeds the threshold.*
  5. When the system has started, the +BS terminal voltage is less than 5 V for 0.5 seconds or more.
  6. The +BS terminal voltage is less than 2.6 V for 0.2 seconds or more.
  • Battery
  • Charging system
  • Internal power supply circuit of the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)

*: The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) monitors the resistance of the power source line at the +BS terminal. A malfunction is detected when an abnormality occurs in the +BS terminal wire harness or its connection and the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) determines that the wiring resistance at the +BS terminal exceeds the standard resistance.
