DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P1631

DTC Code DTC Name
P1631 Communication Error from ECM to VSC

DESCRIPTION

The ECM sends signals such as A/T information signals, dynamic radar cruise control operation signals, brake operation demand signals, and buzzer operation demand signals to the skid control ECU assembly when the dynamic radar cruise control is operating. Therefore, if the skid control ECU assembly detects a communication error with the ECM, it sends a malfunction signal back to the ECM.

DTC No. Detection Item DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P1631 Communication Error from ECM to VSC

w/o Full-speed range following function:


  • While the vehicle speed is 36 km/h (22 mph) or more and the dynamic radar cruise control system is operating, the ECM continuously receives a logical error signal from the skid control ECU assembly for approximately 1 second or more.

w/ Full-speed Range Following Function:


  • While the vehicle speed is 5 km/h (3 mph) or more and the dynamic radar cruise control system is operating, the ECM continuously receives a logical error signal from the skid control ECU assembly for approximately 1 second or more.


  • CAN communication system

  • Skid control ECU assembly
