ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED BRAKE SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:C1246/46, C1281/81, C1364/61

DTC Code DTC Name
C1246/46 Master Cylinder Pressure Sensor Malfunction
C1281/81 Master Cylinder Pressure Sensor Output Malfunction (Test Mode DTC)
C1364/61 Wheel Cylinder Pressure Sensor Malfunction

DESCRIPTION

The regulator pressure sensor and wheel cylinder pressure sensor are built into the brake actuator. They measure their respective pressures and send signals to the skid control ECU.

DTC C1281/81 will be cleared when the regulator pressure sensor sends a regulator pressure signal or when Test Mode ends. DTC C1281/81 is output only in Test Mode.

DTC No. INF Code DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area

  2. The regulator pressure sensor output voltage does not correspond with wheel cylinder pressure sensor and the outputs remain out of specification for 0.5 to 5 seconds or more continuously.

    (May be output with INF code 424.)

(May be output with INF code 204.)

426

Fluctuation of wheel cylinder pressure sensor output is out of specification (the difference between the present value and last value is 15 MPa (153.0 kgf/cm2, 2176 psi) or more) for 0.1 seconds or more.

C1281/81 - Detected only during Test Mode.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note

When replacing the skid control ECU (brake booster with master cylinder assembly) or brake actuator (brake booster with master cylinder assembly), perform initialization and calibration of the linear solenoid valve Click here.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK STOP LIGHT SWITCH ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION


    1. Check the protrusion of the rod Click here.

      OK
      Stop light switch assembly is installed properly.

      Tech Tips

      If the stop light switch assembly is not installed properly, adjust the protrusion of the rod before proceeding to the next step.
