Toyota Camry (XV70): TRAC does not Operate

DESCRIPTION

When TRAC or VSC is operating, the skid control ECU (brake actuator 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 ECM 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 actuator assembly), perform acceleration sensor zero point calibration and system information memorization.

PERFORM OPERATION CHECK DRIVING

(a) Operate the VSC OFF switch and check that the system is not in TRAC off mode or VSC off mode.

(b) Check that no DTCs are output and that each warning light is not illuminated.

(c) Start off the vehicle on a low friction surface and check that TRAC operates when attempting to make the drive wheels slip.

OK:

TRAC operates when slip occurs when starting off.

NOTICE:

  • Even when the system is normal, VSC may not operate when the vehicle speed is low or TRAC may not operate due to a malfunction. Make sure that only the drive wheels slip during the procedure.
  • When confirming that the slip indicator light blinks, do not slip the drive wheels longer than necessary. Whether TRAC operated or not can be checked by reading the Vehicle Control History (RoB) when the system operated.
