Lexus ES: Brake Warning Light Remains ON

DESCRIPTION

This procedure is for troubleshooting when the brake warning light / red (malfunction) remains on but no DTCs are output.

The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) controls the brake warning light / red (malfunction) in the combination meter assembly via CAN communication.

WIRING DIAGRAM

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • After replacing the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly), perform acceleration sensor zero point calibration and store system information memorization.

  • Before performing this procedure, depress the brake pedal and confirm that the stop lights illuminate.

PROCEDURE

1.

PRE-CHECK

(a) Check that all of the following conditions required for the brake warning light / red (malfunction) to turn off are met:

(1) The ABS warning light are not illuminated.

HINT:

If the ABS warning light remains illuminated, make sure that the conditions required for the ABS warning light to turn off are met.

(2) The brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir assembly is not low.

(3) The vacuum inside the brake booster decreases.

HINT:

When the vacuum inside the brake booster decreases, the brake warning light / red (malfunction) comes on.

2.

CHECK VEHICLE CONTROL HISTORY (ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED BRAKE SYSTEM AND ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE SYSTEM)

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the engine switch on (IG).

(c) Enter the following menus: Chassis / Brake/EPB / Utility / Vehicle Control History (RoB).

(d) Using the Techstream, check for Vehicle Control History.

Vehicle Control History (RoB)

HINT:

If vehicle control history is stored when the electronically controlled brake system and electric parking brake system are suspended, the brake warning light / red (malfunction) illuminates.

Result

Proceed to

There is no vehicle control history for when the electronically controlled brake system and electric parking brake system were suspended.
