ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED BRAKE SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:C1231/31

DTC Code DTC Name
C1231/31 Steering Angle Sensor Circuit Malfunction

DESCRIPTION

The steering angle sensor signal is sent to the skid control ECU via the CAN communication system. When there is a malfunction in the CAN communication system, it will be detected by the diagnosis function.

DTC Code Information Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
C1231/31 341 A steering angle sensor malfunction signal other than the sensor malfunction signal (STS1) or +B open malfunction signal (STS2), which are received as part of the steering angle sensor data, indicates the presence of a malfunction (a "stuck malfunction" is present).
  • Steering angle sensor

  • Harness or connector

  • Steering angle sensor power supply

  • Skid control ECU

342 The sensor malfunction signal (STS1), which is received as part of the steering angle sensor data, indicates the presence of a malfunction. Steering angle sensor
344 The +B open malfunction signal (STS2), which is received as part of the steering angle sensor data, indicates the presence of a malfunction.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Tech Tips


  • If a CAN communication malfunction DTC and a related sensor malfunction DTC are output at the same time, the CAN communication malfunction must be repaired before troubleshooting the sensor malfunction DTC.

  • When the speed sensor or the yaw rate sensor has trouble, DTCs for the steering angle sensor may be output even when the steering angle sensor is normal. When DTCs for the speed sensor or yaw rate sensor are output together with other DTCs for the steering angle sensor, inspect and repair the speed sensor and yaw rate sensor first, and then inspect and repair the steering angle sensor.

  • Start the inspection from "CHECK HARNESS AND CONNECTOR" when using the intelligent tester and start from "CHECK DTC" when not using the intelligent tester.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK DTC


    1. Clear the DTC Click here.

    2. Turn the power switch OFF.

    3. Turn the power switch ON (READY) again and check that no CAN communication system DTC is output (for LHD: Click here /for RHD: Click here.

    4. Drive the vehicle at a speed of 35 km/h (24 mph), turn the steering wheel to the right and left, and check that no speed sensor and yaw rate sensor DTCs are output.

      Result Proceed to
      No CAN communication system DTC and speed sensor or yaw rate sensor DTC are output. A
      CAN communication system DTC is output. for LHD B
      for RHD C
      Speed sensor or yaw rate sensor DTC is output. D

      Tech Tips


      • If there is a malfunction in the speed sensor or the yaw rate sensor, an abnormal value may be output although the steering angle sensor is normal.

      • If the speed sensor and the yaw rate sensor DTCs are output simultaneously, repair the sensors first, and then inspect the steering angle sensor.

  2. CHECK TERMINAL VOLTAGE AND RESISTANCE (IG, BAT, ESS)


    1. A01H1CPE36

      Remove the steering wheel and the column cover lower.

    2. Disconnect the L21 sensor connector.

    3. Measure the voltage according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard voltage
      Tester Connection Switch Condition Specified Condition
      L21-1 (IG) - Body ground Power switch ON (IG) 11 to 14 V
      L21-3 (BAT) - Body ground Always 11 to 14 V
    4. Measure the resistance according to the value(s) in the table below.

      Standard resistance
      Tester Connection Switch Condition Specified Condition
      L21-2 (ESS) - Body ground Always Below 1 Ω
