Inspection procedure

  1. Prepare for inspection

  1. Check that both of the following conditions are satisfied.

Hint:

When the abs warning light remains illuminated, repair the malfunctions in the abs system first.


  1. Check dtc for abs

  1. Check if any abs dtcs are output (see page bc-47).

Result




  1. Check can communication system

  1. Check if the can communication system dtc is output (see page ca-34).

Result




  1. Inspect skid control ecu connector

  1. Check if the skid control ecu connector is properly installed.

Ok: the skid control ecu connector is properly installed.



  1. Check wire harness (skid control ecu - battery and body ground)

  1. Disconnect the a19 ecu connector.
  2. Measure the resistance of the wire harness side connector.

Standard resistance


  1. Measure the voltage of the wire harness side connector.

Standard voltage




  1. Read value of intelligent tester (parking brake switch)

  1. Using the data list, check for proper functioning of the parking brake switch.

  1. Remove the reservoir tank cap and strainer.
  2. Disconnect the brake fluid level warning switch connector.
  3. Measure the resistance of the switch.

Hint:

A float is placed inside the reservoir. Its position can be changed by increasing or decreasing the brake fluid level.

Standard resistance


Hint:

If there is no problem after the above check is finished, adjust the brake fluid level to the max level.



  1. Check wire harness (level warning switch - combination meter and body ground)

  1. Disconnect the e19 combination meter connector.
  2. Disconnect the a8 switch connector.
  3. Measure the resistance of the wire harness side connectors.

Standard resistance

Replace abs and traction actuator assembly

  1. Inspect parking brake switch assembly

  1. Remove the parking brake switch.
  2. Measure the resistance of the switch.

Standard resistance




  1. Check wire harness (junction block - parking brake switch and body ground)

  1. Disconnect the 1d junction block connector.
  2. Disconnect the e41 switch connector.
  3. Measure the resistance of the wire harness side connectors.
