PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK DTC OUTPUT

(a) Using the Techstream, check for DTCs according to the prompts on the screen.

HINT:

After turning the engine switch from off to on (IG), wait 4 seconds or more before checking for DTCs.

Body Electrical > Advanced Parking Guidance/ICS/Intuitive P/A > Trouble Codes

(b) Clear the DTCs according to the screen on the Techstream.

Body Electrical > Advanced Parking Guidance/ICS/Intuitive P/A > Clear DTCs

(c) Recheck for DTCs.

Body Electrical > Advanced Parking Guidance/ICS/Intuitive P/A > Trouble Codes

HINT:

  • If DTC C164B is not output after clearing the DTCs, an intermittent communication error between the clearance warning ECU assembly and skid control ECU is suspected.
  • If DTC C164B is output frequently, duplicate the conditions that cause the problem symptoms and perform troubleshooting again, even though the DTC was not output when rechecking for DTCs.
