Toyota Camry (XV70): Brake Warning Light Remains ON

DESCRIPTION

This procedure is for troubleshooting when the brake system warning light (red indicator) remains on but no DTCs are output.

The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) controls the brake system warning light (red indicator) in the combination meter assembly via CAN communication.

WIRING DIAGRAM

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • After replacing the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly), perform acceleration sensor zero point calibration and system information memorization.

  • Before performing this procedure, depress the brake pedal and confirm that the stop lights illuminate.

PROCEDURE

1.

PRE-CHECK

(a) Check that all of the following conditions required for the brake system warning light (red indicator) to turn off are met:

(1) The ABS warning light are not illuminated.

HINT:

If the ABS warning light remains illuminated, make sure that the conditions required for the ABS warning light to turn off are met.

(2) The brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir assembly is not low.

(3) Ensure that the brake booster has sufficient vacuum.

HINT:

When the vacuum inside the brake booster decreases, the brake system warning light (red indicator) comes on.

2.

CHECK VEHICLE CONTROL HISTORY (RoB) (VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEM)

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(c) Enter the following menus: Chassis / Brake / Utility / Vehicle Control History (RoB).

(d) Using the Techstream, check for Vehicle Control History (RoB).

Vehicle Control History (RoB)

HINT:

If vehicle control history (RoB) is stored when the vehicle stability control system is suspended, the brake system warning light (red indicator) illuminates.

Result

Proceed to

There is no vehicle control history (RoB) for when the vehicle stability control system was suspended.
