Hint:

If the abs warning light and vsc warning warning light do not blink, check the ts and cg terminal circuit, and abs and vsc warning light circuits.


  1. Start the engine.
  1. W/ 16-inch disc only: check the lost booster pressure judgment and perform the master cylinder pressure sensor zero point calibration.

Notice:

Preform the check in the lost booster pressure state (negative pressure in the booster is depressurized).

  1. Turn the ignition switch on.

  3. Start the engine depressing the brake pedal with a force of 59 n (6 kgf, 13.2 Lbf) or more for 1 second or more.
  4. Check that the brake warning light goes off when quickly releasing the brake pedal. (The lost booster pressure state is judged normal.)
  5. Leave the vehicle for 1 second or more. (Master cylinder pressure sensor zero point calibration.)

Notice:

  1. Check the deceleration sensor.
  1. Keep the vehicle stationary on a level surface for 1 second or more.

Hint:

The deceleration sensor check can be performed together with the following master cylinder pressure sensor check.

  1. Check the master cylinder pressure sensor.
  1. Leave the vehicle in a stationary condition and release the brake pedal for 1 second or more, and quickly depress the brake pedal with a force of 98 n (10 kgf, 22 lbf) or more for 1 second.

    Check that the abs warning light remains illuminated for 3 seconds.

Hint:

  1. Check the speed sensor.

  1. Shift the shift lever to the d position and drive the vehicle at a speed of approximately 5 km/h (3 mph), and turn the steering wheel either to the left or right 90° or more to turn the vehicle through 180°.
  2. Stop the vehicle, move the shift lever into the p position, and then apply the parking brake.
  3. Check that the skid control buzzer sounds for 3 seconds.

Hint:

  1. W/ downhill assist control only:

2. Push the downhill assist control switch off.

  1. W/ auto lsd only:
  1. Check that the auto lsd light illuminates only when the auto lsd switch is pressed.
  1. Check the end of sensor.
  1. When the sensor check is successfully completed, the abs warning light blinks in the test mode pattern when the vehicle is stopped, and goes off when the vehicle is driven.

Notice:

If the sensor check is not completed, the abs warning light blinks even while the vehicle is driving and the abs does not operate.

  1. Read the dtcs of signal check function.
  1. Read the dtc(s) by following the instructions on the tester screen.

Notice:

Hint:
