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.
