Toyota RAV4 Service Manual: Brake switch "A" / "B" correlation

Toyota RAV4. Brake switch "a" / "b" correlation


Description

The stop light switch is 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. If the signals, which indicate the brake pedal is being depressed and released, are detected simultaneously, the ecm interprets this as a malfunction in the stop light switch and sets the dtc.

Hint:

The normal conditions are as shown in the table below. The signals can be read using the intelligent tester.

  1. Check ecm (stp and st1 - voltage)

  1. Disconnect the a9 ecm connector.
  2. Turn the ignition switch on.
  3. Measure the voltage between the terminals st1- and stp of the a9 ecm connector and body ground.

standard voltage


  1. Reconnect the ecm connector.

 


  1. Inspect fuse (stop and ign fuse)
