Toyota Corolla Cross: Dtc Check / Clear

DTC CHECK / CLEAR

NOTICE:

When the diagnosis system is changed from normal mode to check mode or vice versa, all DTCs and freeze frame data recorded in normal mode are cleared. Before changing modes, always check and make a note of DTCs and freeze frame data.

HINT:

  • DTCs which are stored in the TCM can be displayed on the Techstream. The Techstream can display confirmed, pending and permanent DTCs.
  • If a malfunction is detected during the current driving cycle, confirmed and permanent DTCs are stored.
  • Some DTCs are not stored if the TCM does not detect the same malfunction again during a second consecutive driving cycle. However, such malfunctions, detected during only one driving cycle, are stored as pending DTCs.
  • Confirmed and pending DTCs can be cleared by using the Techstream. However, permanent DTCs cannot be cleared using the Techstream.
  • After clearing confirmed DTCs using the Techstream, permanent DTCs can be cleared when the universal trip is performed and then the system is determined to be normal for the relevant DTCs. The driving pattern to obtain a normal judgment is described under the "Confirmation Driving Pattern" for the respective DTC.

    To clear permanent DTCs, all of the following conditions must be met:

    • A universal trip has been performed.
    • The vehicle has been judged as normal for 1 trip.
    • No malfunctions are detected.
2 Trip Detection Examples

Pending DTC

Store condition

Malfunction detected

Clear condition

System determined to be normal

or

DTCs cleared using Techstream

Confirmed DTC

Store condition

Malfunction detected (2nd trip)

Clear condition

No malfunctions in 40 driving cycles

or

DTCs cleared using Techstream

Permanent DTC

Store condition

Malfunction detected (2nd trip)

Clear condition

Ignition switch turned on (IG) after no malfunction is detected in 3 consecutive driving cycles

or

After DTCs cleared using Techstream, universal trip performed and normal judgment obtained for 1 trip

MIL

ON

Malfunction detected (2nd trip)

OFF

Ignition switch turned on (IG) after no malfunction is detected in 3 consecutive driving cycles

or

DTCs cleared using Techstream

CHECK DTC

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

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

(c) Turn the Techstream on.

(d) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Trouble Codes.

Powertrain > Transmission > Trouble Codes

(e) Check for DTCs and freeze frame data, and write them down.

Techstream Display

Description

Test Failed

Shows the malfunction judgment results during the current trip.

Pending

Shows the malfunction judgment results up to now. (Indicates the possibility of a malfunction when no DTC is confirmed.)

Confirmed

Shows the DTCs confirmed up to now. (The number of current trips differs for each DTC.)

(f) Check the details of the DTCs.

NOTICE:

When simulating a symptom and using the Techstream to check for DTCs, use normal mode. For DTCs in the Diagnostic Trouble Code Chart subject to "2-trip detection logic", perform the following:

Turn the ignition switch off after the symptom is simulated once. Then repeat the simulation process. When the symptom has been simulated twice, the MIL will illuminate and DTCs will be stored in the TCM.

CLEAR DTC (Pending and Confirmed DTC)

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

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

(c) Turn the Techstream on.

(d) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Trouble Codes.

Powertrain > Transmission > Clear DTCs

(e) Clear the DTCs.

CLEAR PERMANENT DTC

OUTLINE
  • After clearing confirmed DTCs using the Techstream (or by disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal), permanent DTCs can be cleared when the universal trip is performed and then the system is determined to be normal for the relevant DTCs. The driving pattern to obtain a normal judgment is described under Confirmation Driving Pattern for the respective DTC.
  • To clear permanent DTCs, all of the following conditions must be met:
    • A universal trip has been performed.
    • The vehicle has been judged as normal for 1 trip. (Normal judgment does not have to be performed in 2 consecutive trips, but normal judgment should have occurred in the latest trip.)
    • No malfunctions are detected.

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

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

(c) Turn the Techstream on.

(d) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Trouble Codes.

Powertrain > Transmission > Trouble Codes

HINT:

If "YES" is displayed for the value of "PERMANENT" at the top right of the Techstream screen, permanent DTCs are stored.

(e) Select the "Generic" tab.

(f) Check if permanent DTCs are stored.

HINT:

If permanent DTCs are not output, it is not necessary to continue this procedure.

(g) Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).

Powertrain > Transmission > Clear DTCs

NOTICE:

Do not clear the DTCs or disconnect the cable from the negative (-) battery terminal after performing this step.

(h) Perform the universal trip.

HINT:

The universal trip driving pattern and normal judgment procedure can be performed consecutively in the same driving cycle.

  1. Start the engine and wait for 30 seconds or more.
  2. Drive the vehicle at 40 km/h (25 mph) or more for a total of 5 minutes or more.

    CAUTION:

    When performing a driving pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

    HINT:

    It is possible to complete the drive pattern even if the vehicle decelerates to less than 40 km/h (25 mph) during the driving cycle provided that the vehicle is driven at 40 km/h (25 mph) or more for a total of 5 minutes.

  3. Allow 10 minutes or more to elapse from the time the engine started.

(i) Turn the ignition switch off and wait for 2 minutes or more.

(j) Turn the ignition switch on (IG).

(k) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Trouble Codes.

Powertrain > Transmission > Trouble Codes

(l) Check that the permanent DTCs have been cleared.

HINT:

If permanent DTCs are not output, it is not necessary to continue this procedure.

(m) Perform the normal judgment procedure in the respective confirmation driving pattern of each output DTC.

HINT:

Do not turn the ignition switch off by mistake during this step.

(n) With the ignition switch on (IG), wait for 5 seconds or more.

(o) Turn the ignition switch off and wait for 2 minutes or more.

(p) Turn the ignition switch on (IG).

(q) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Transmission / Trouble Codes.

Powertrain > Transmission > Trouble Codes

(r) Check that the permanent DTCs have been cleared.
