Toyota RAV4. Internal control module random access memory (ram) error


Description

The ecm continuously monitors its own internal memory status, internal circuits, and output signals transmitted to the throttle actuator. This self-check ensures that the ecm is functioning properly. If any malfunction is detected, the ecm sets the appropriate dtc and illuminates the mil.

The ecm memory status is diagnosed by internal mirroring of the main cpu and the sub cpu to detect random access memory (ram) errors. The two cpus also perform continuous mutual monitoring. The ecm illuminates the mil and sets a dtc if: 1) outputs from the two cpus are different or deviate from the standards, 2) the signals sent to the throttle actuator deviate from the standards, 3) a malfunction is found in the throttle actuator supply voltage, and 4) any other ecm malfunction is found.

Inspection procedure

Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air-fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

  1. Check any other dtcs output (in addition to dtc p0604, p0606, p0607 or p0657)

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

System voltage
Description The battery supplies electricity to the ecm even when the ignition switch is in the off position. This power allows the ecm to store data such as dtc history, freeze frame data and ...

Starter relay circuit high
Description While the engine is being cranked, the positive battery voltage is applied to terminal sta of the ecm. If the ecm detects the starter control (sta) signal while the vehicle is bein ...

How to proceed with troubleshooting
Hint: Use these procedures to troubleshoot the supplemental restraint 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. ...

Cooling fan system
Parts location System diagram On-vehicle inspection Hint: It is normal for the cooling fan to sometimes rotate when the ignition switch is turned from acc to on. Check cooling fan operation at low temperatures (below 94°c (201°f)) Turn the ignition switch on with the a/c ...

Disassembly
Inspect oil pump assembly (see page ax-218) Remove clutch drum oil seal ring Remove the 2 clutch drum oil seal rings. Remove stator shaft assembly Using a t30 ''torx'' socket, remove the 11 bolts and stator shaft. Keep the gears in assembling order. Inspect clearan ...
