FORWARD RECOGNITION CAMERA SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:C1A11, C1A14

DTC Code DTC Name
C1A11 Front Radar Sensor Incorrect Axial Gap
C1A14 Front Radar Sensor Beam Axis Not Adjusted

DESCRIPTION

The forward recognition camera uses the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly to detect obstacles in front of the vehicle.

When the vehicle is determined to be driving in a straight line or on a gradual curve based on signals from the yaw rate and acceleration sensor (yaw rate sensor) etc., the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly performs self diagnosis to check if the sensor beam axis has deviated from the vehicle movement direction. When the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly beam axis has deviated, the forward recognition camera detects this, and stores DTC C1A11.

After installing a new millimeter wave radar sensor assembly, if sensor beam axis adjustment is not performed, DTC C1A14 is stored.

DTC No. Detection Item DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
C1A11 Front Radar Sensor Incorrect Axial Gap 2 seconds after the engine switch is turned on (IG), misalignment of the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly is detected for approximately 5 seconds.
  • Millimeter wave radar sensor assembly

  • Forward recognition camera

C1A14 Front Radar Sensor Beam Axis Not Adjusted 2 seconds after the engine switch is turned on (IG), misalignment of the millimeter wave radar sensor assembly is detected for approximately 5 seconds.
  • Millimeter wave radar sensor assembly

  • Forward recognition camera

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note


  • When replacing the forward recognition camera, always replace it with a new one. If a forward recognition camera which was installed to another vehicle is used, the information stored in the forward recognition camera will not match the information from the vehicle. As a result, a DTC may be stored.

  • If the forward recognition camera has been replaced with a new one, be sure to perform Forward Recognition Camera Learning.
