Toyota RAV4 Service Manual: Idle control system malfunction

Toyota RAV4. Idle control system malfunction


Description

The idling speed is controlled by the etcs (electronic throttle control system). The etcs is comprised of: 1) the one valve type throttle body; 2) the throttle actuator, which operates the throttle valve; 3) the throttle position (tp) sensor, which detects the opening angle of the throttle valve; 4) the accelerator pedal position (app) sensor, which detects the accelerator pedal position; and 5) the ecm, which controls the etcs. Based on the target idling speed, the ecm controls the throttle actuator to provide the proper throttle valve opening angle.

Monitor description

The ecm monitors the idling speed and idling air flow volume to conduct idle speed control (isc). The ecm determines that the isc system is malfunctioning if the following conditions apply:

Example: if the actual idling speed varies from the target idling speed by more than 200 rpm* 5 times during a drive cycle, the ecm illuminates the mil and sets the dtc.

Hint:

*: Threshold idling speed varies with engine load.

Inspection procedure

Hint:

  1. The floor carpet overlapping slightly onto the accelerator pedal, causing the accelerator pedal to be slightly depressed and therefore the throttle valve position to be slightly open.
  2. The accelerator pedal being not fully released.
  1. Check any other dtcs output (in addition to dtc p0505)

  1. Connect the intelligent tester to the dlc3.
  2. Turn the ignition switch on.
  3. Turn the tester on.
  4. Select the following the menu items: diagnosis / enhanced obd ii / dtc info / current codes.
  5. Read dtcs.

Hint:

If any dtcs other than p0505 are output, troubleshoot those dtcs first.



  1. Check pcv hose connections

Ok: pcv hose is connected correctly and is not damaged.



  1. Check air induction system

  1. Check the air induction system for vacuum leakage.

Ok: no leakage from air induction system.



  1. Check throttle valve

  1. Check the throttle valve condition.

Ok: throttle valve is not contamainated with foreign objects and moves smoothly.

How to proceed with troubleshooting
Hint: Use these procedures to troubleshoot the lighting system. *: Use the intelligent tester. Vehicle brought to workshop Inspect battery voltage Standard voltage: 11 to 14 v If the voltage is below 11 v, recharge or replace the battery before proceeding. Refer to pr ...

Installation
Caution: Be sure to read the precautionary notices concerning the srs airbag system before servicing it (see page rs-1). Install front passenger airbag assembly Attach the rear side hook of the front passenger airbag to the rear side airbag door. Bend the front side hook so that it a ...

Tc and cg terminal circuit
Description Dtc output mode is set by connecting terminals tc and cg of the dlc3. The dtcs are displayed by blinking the srs warning light. Hint: Make sure that dtc b1281 has not been output. If dtc b1281 has been output, refer to the multiplex communication system. When each warning ...
