Toyota RAV4 Service Manual: Diagnosis system

  1. Description

The occupant classification ecu controls the functions of the occupant classification system on the vehicle. Data of the occupant classification system can be read in the data link connector 3 (dlc3) of the vehicle. When the system seems to be malfunctioning, use the intelligent tester to check for a malfunction and perform repairs.

  1. Check dlc3

The ecu uses iso 15765-4 for communication. The terminal arrangement of the dlc3 complies with iso 15031-3 and matches the iso 15765-4 format.

Notice:

*: Before measuring the resistance, leave the vehicle as is for at least 1 minute and do not operate the ignition switch, any switches or doors.

If the result is not as specified, the dlc3 may have a malfunction. Repair or replace the harness and connector.

Hint:

Connect the cable of the intelligent tester (with can vim) to the dlc3, turn the ignition switch on and attempt to use the tester. If the display indicates that a communication error has occurred, there is a problem either with the vehicle or with the tester.

  1. Symptom simulation

Hint:

The most difficult case in troubleshooting is when no symptoms occur. In such cases, a thorough customer problem analysis must be carried out. A simulation of the same or similar conditions and environment in which the problem occurred in the customer's vehicle should be carried out. No matter how much skill or experience a technician has, troubleshooting without confirming the problem symptoms will lead to important repairs being overlooked and mistakes or delays.

  1. Vibration method:

When vibration seems to be the major cause.

Hint:

Perform the simulation method only during the primary check period (for approximately 6 seconds after the ignition switch is turned on).

  1. Slightly vibrate the part of the sensor considered to be the cause of the problem with your fingers and check whether the malfunction occurs.

Hint:

Shaking the relays too strongly may result in open relays.

  1. Slightly shake the connector vertically and horizontally.
  2. Slightly shake the wire harness vertically and horizontally.

The connector joint and fulcrum of the vibration are the major areas to be checked thoroughly.

  1. Simulation method for dtc b1795:

Turn the ignition switch from the lock to the on position, hold the position for 10 seconds, and then turn it back to the lock position again 50 times in a row.

Hint:

Dtc b1795 is output if the occupant classification ecu receives the ignition switch lock-on-lock signal 50 times in a row when a malfunction occurs in the power circuit for the occupant classification system.

  1. Function of passenger airbag on/off indicator

  1. Initial check
  1. Turn the ignition switch on.
  2. The passenger airbag on/off indicator (on and off) comes on for approximately 4 seconds, then goes off for approximately 2 seconds.
  3. Approximately 6 seconds after the ignition switch is turned to the on position, the passenger airbag on/off indicator will be on/ off depending on the conditions listed below.

  1. Turn the ignition switch on.
  2. Check that the passenger airbag on/off indicators come on for approximately 4 seconds, then go off for approximately 2 seconds.

Hint:

Refer to the table in the previous step regarding the passenger airbag on/off indicator when approximately 6 seconds have elapsed after the ignition switch is turned to the on position.
