Toyota Tundra Service Manual: Communication Error from ECM to VSC (P1631)

DESCRIPTION

The ECM sends signals such as A/T information signals, dynamic radar cruise control operation signals, brake operation demand signals, and buzzer operation demand signals to the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) when the dynamic radar cruise control is operating. Therefore, if the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) detects a communication error with the ECM, it sends a malfunction signal back to the ECM.

DTC No.

Communication Error from ECM to VSC

While the vehicle speed is 36 km/h (22 mph) or more and the dynamic radar cruise control system is operating, the ECM continuously receives a logical error signal from the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) for approximately 1 second or more.

  • CAN communication circuit
  • ECM
  • Skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)
