TOYOTA PARKING ASSIST-SENSOR SYSTEM OPERATION CHECK


  1. CHECK INITIAL CHECK FUNCTION

    A01IQZDE01

    1. Check the initial check function for the buzzer.


      1. When the back sonar or clearance sonar switch assembly is turned on, check that the following occurs: 1) after 0.2 seconds, the buzzer sounds for approximately 0.7 to 1.3 seconds, and 2) the system starts the obstacle detection operation.

    2. Check the initial check function for the indicator.


      1. When the back sonar or clearance sonar switch assembly is turned on, check that the following occurs: 1) after 0.2 seconds, the sensor LED illuminates for approximately 0.7 to 1.3 seconds, and 2) the system starts the obstacle detection operation.

      2. After the back sonar or clearance sonar switch assembly is turned on, check that the vehicle LED illuminates.

    3. Check the initial check function for the sensor.


      • Approximately 0.2 seconds after the ignition switch is turned to ON and the back sonar or clearance sonar switch is turned on, all the sensors are checked by the system.

      • When the shift lever is operated, the system starts the obstacle detection operation.

  2. MALFUNCTION INDICATOR AND BUZZER


    1. Open circuit indication


      1. If there is an open circuit between the ultrasonic sensor and the clearance warning ECU, or a sensor is malfunctioning, the malfunction is displayed as shown in the illustration.

        Tech Tips


        • The example shows an open circuit in the ultrasonic sensor (front left sensor).

        • Troubleshoot according to each inspection procedure Click here.

    2. Frozen indication


      1. If a sensor is covered with foreign matter, such as mud or snow, the affected sensor is displayed as shown in the illustration.

        Tech Tips


        • The example shows that the ultrasonic sensor (front left sensor) is covered with foreign matter.

  3. DETECTION RANGE MEASUREMENT AND INDICATOR CHECK

    CAUTION:

    Apply the parking brake securely so that the vehicle does not move.


    1. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    2. Turn the back sonar or clearance sonar switch on.

    3. Move the shift lever to R to check the rear corner sensors and rear center sensors.

    4. Move a pole around the sensor to measure the detection range of the sensor.

      Note


      • These detection ranges are applicable when positioning a pole with a diameter of φ60 mm (2.36 in.) parallel or perpendicular to the ground.

      • The ranges vary depending on the measuring method and type of obstacle (such as walls).

      • For close-range and medium-range detection, the values shown are for when using a pole with a diameter of φ60 mm (2.36 in.). For long-range detection, the values shown are for when using walls.

      • The No. 1 ultrasonic sensor side view detection range hatched area*1 represents the cross section of the top view of the detection range along the lines labeled A. The hatched area*1 does not represent the entire side view detection range.

        Tech Tips

        Ultrasonic waves are used to measure the detection range. However, the detection range may vary depending on the ambient temperature.

      2. Check the indicator and buzzer when the back sensors and rear corner sensors have detected an obstacle.
