STOP AND START SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P1548

DTC Code DTC Name
P1548 Engine Starter Related Parts Wear Limit

DESCRIPTION

The operating life-span of the flywheel sub-assembly is set to a fixed number. When that set number of operations is reached, the engine stop and start ECU outputs DTC P1548 and prohibits stop and start control.

  1. Tech Tips


    • If the cable is disconnected from the battery terminal, stop and start control is prohibited until refresh charge is completed.

      In this case, let the vehicle idle with the battery temperature at 11°C (51°F) or higher for 5 to 60 minutes to complete the refresh charge. (The refresh charge is complete when the Data List item Status of Battery Charge Control changes from "Refresh Charge Mode".)

    • If the GTS is not available and the Data List item Status of Battery Charge Control cannot be checked, charge the battery by idling the engine for approximately 5 to 60 minutes or driving the vehicle, and then drive the vehicle and check that stop and start control operates.

      If the engine is started with the hood open, the system determines that a jump start has occurred. Therefore, make sure that the hood is closed before starting the engine and driving the vehicle.

    • After the refresh charge completes, turn the engine switch off, wait for at least 30 seconds, and then start the engine again.

      If the vehicle enters refresh charge mode again while the engine is idling, the initial refresh charge did not properly complete, so wait for the refresh charge to complete.

    • Allow the engine to idle for 3 minutes after the engine warms up and check that the engine speed is within 50 rpm of the target idle speed.

    CONFIRMATION AFTER TROUBLESHOOTING


    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the GTS on.

    3. Clear the DTCs.

      Powertrain > Stop and Start > Clear DTCs
    4. Start the engine and warm it up.

    5. Drive the vehicle at 7 km/h (4.3 mph) or more.

      CAUTION:

      When performing Confirmation Driving Pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

    6. for Automatic Transmission:

      Depress the brake pedal and stop the vehicle.

      for Manual Transmission:

      Stop the vehicle, move the shift lever to neutral and release the clutch pedal.

    7. Keep the engine stopped by stop and start control. (for Automatic Transmission: Keep the shift lever in D.)

    8. for Automatic Transmission:

      Release the brake pedal with the shift lever in D to start the engine.

      for Manual Transmission:

      Depress the clutch pedal and start the engine.

      Tech Tips

      If the engine cranks slowly when the engine is restarted, it can be determined that the battery voltage is low.

    9. Check that no DTCs are output.

    STOP AND START SYSTEM OPERATION CHECK


    1. Start the engine and warm it up.

    2. Turn the air conditioning system off.

    3. Drive the vehicle at 7 km/h (4.3 mph) or more.

      CAUTION:

      When performing Confirmation Driving Pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

    4. for Automatic Transmission:

      Depress the brake pedal and stop the vehicle.

      for Manual Transmission:

      Stop the vehicle, move the shift lever to neutral and release the clutch pedal.

    5. Allow the engine to stop by stop and start control. (for Automatic Transmission: Keep the shift lever in D.)

    6. for Automatic Transmission:

      Release the brake pedal with the shift lever in D to start the engine.

      for Manual Transmission:

      Depress the clutch pedal and start the engine.

Tech Tips

Using the GTS, read the freeze frame data before troubleshooting. System condition information is recorded as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. This information can be useful when troubleshooting.
