PRECAUTION FOR TROUBLESHOOTING

(a) When a terminal contact is loose or damaged or a part is improperly installed, the system may only temporarily return to normal if the part is removed and installed without thorough diagnosis and repair.

(b) In order to assist with diagnosis, check and make a note of related information such as DTCs and Freeze Frame Data before disconnecting any connectors or removing and installing parts.

(c) Since the system may be influenced by malfunctions in systems other than the parking support brake system, be sure to check for any past and present DTCs in other systems.

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS FOR ECU OR SENSOR

(a) Unless specified by the inspection procedure, make sure that the ignition switch is off when removing or installing each ECU or ultrasonic sensor.

(b) After removing and installing each ECU or ultrasonic sensor and all parts have been installed, check and ensure that no DTCs are output.

HANDLING PRECAUTIONS FOR PARKING SUPPORT BRAKE SYSTEM

(a) Make sure to observe the following points when using the parking support brake system.

(1) Do not rely solely upon the parking support brake system. Relying solely upon the parking support brake system may lead to an unexpected accident.

  • The driver is responsible for safe operation of the vehicle. Pay careful attention to the surrounding conditions in order to ensure safe driving. The parking support brake system may be able to reduce the severity of impacts towards pedestrians and reduce the amount of collision-related damage, but the system may not function in some circumstances.
  • The parking support brake system is not a system to stop the vehicle completely. If the vehicle is stopped by the parking support brake system, brake control by the parking support brake system will be canceled after approximately 2 seconds. Depress the brake pedal immediately after the parking support brake system operates.

(2) For the parking support brake system to operate correctly, make sure to observe the following points for the ultrasonic sensors. If not, the ultrasonic sensors may not operate correctly, resulting a serious injury.

  • Do not modify, disassemble or paint an ultrasonic sensor.
  • When replacing an ultrasonic sensor, only use TOYOTA genuine parts.
  • Do not subject an ultrasonic sensor or the area around an ultrasonic sensor to any impact.
  • Do not damage an ultrasonic sensor. Always keep the ultrasonic sensors clean.

(3) Adhere to the following precautions for the blind spot monitor sensor to ensure that the system operates normally. If the blind spot monitor sensor does not operate normally, it may lead to an unforeseen accident, which is dangerous.

  • Keep the blind spot monitor sensors and the surrounding areas on the rear bumper clean at all times.
  • Do not subject a blind spot monitor sensor or its surrounding area on the rear bumper to a strong impact. If a blind spot monitor sensor is moved even slightly off position, the system may malfunction and vehicles may not be detected correctly. In the following situations, inspect the blind spot monitor sensor and surrounding area.
    • A blind spot monitor sensor or its surrounding area is subject to a strong impact.
    • If the surrounding area of a blind spot monitor sensor is scratched or dented, or part of them has become disconnected.
  • Do not disassemble the blind spot monitor sensor.
  • Do not install accessories in the blind spot monitor sensors and the rear bumper near the blind spot monitor sensors and apply any sticker (including a transparent one) and aluminum tape.
  • Do not modify the blind spot monitor sensor or surrounding area on the rear bumper.
  • Do not paint the rear bumper any color other than an official TOYOTA color.
  • Do not drop a blind spot monitor sensor or subject it to a strong impact, as it is a high-precision device.
  • Do not reuse a blind spot monitor sensor that has been dropped or subjected to a strong impact.

(4) Do not modify the suspension, as changes to the height or incline of the vehicle may prevent the ultrasonic sensors from correctly detecting obstacles. This may cause the system to fail to operate or to operate incorrectly.

(5) If the area around an ultrasonic sensor is subjected to an impact, equipment may not operate properly due to an ultrasonic sensor malfunction.

(6) When washing the vehicle with a high-pressure washer, do not spray water on the ultrasonic sensors or surrounding areas. High-pressure water can damage the ultrasonic sensors.

(7) When using steam to wash the vehicle, do not apply steam too close to the ultrasonic sensors. They may not function properly if subjected to steam.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PARKING SUPPORT BRAKE SYSTEM (STATIC OBJECTS) FUNCTION

(a) In the following situations, the parking support brake system (static objects) may not operate correctly.

(1) Environmental influence

  • There is an object that prevents correct detection of an obstruction between the ultrasonic sensor and the obstruction.
  • An object such as motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian crosses in front of the vehicle.

(2) Influence from the weather

  • When the vehicle is operated under the hot sun or in a freezing climate.
  • When foreign matter such as ice, snow or mud is attached to an ultrasonic sensor. If the ultrasonic sensor is cleaned, the system will return to normal.
  • It is raining heavily or the sensor is sprayed with water.
  • The wind is strong.
  • In severe weather such as fog, snow or a sandstorm.
  • The ultrasonic sensor is frozen (will return to normal after defrosting).

(3) Influence from other ultrasonic waves

  • When ultrasonic waves are received from the horn or parking sonar system of another vehicle, a motorcycle engine, or the air brakes of a large vehicle.
  • Electronic components such as a backlit license plate (especially fluorescent types), fog lights, a fender pole or a wireless antenna are installed near an ultrasonic sensor.

(4) Changes in the vehicle

  • The vehicle is tilted at a steep angle.
  • The height of the vehicle has drastically changed due to loading (the nose tilts up or down).
  • When the ultrasonic sensors become misaligned due to removal and installation or a collision, etc.
  • When paint or stickers, etc., are applied to the ultrasonic sensor.
  • When a tow hook, bumper protector, bumper trim, bicycle carrier or snow removal device, etc., is installed (if it does not interfere with the ultrasonic sensor, there is no problem).
  • When the tire diameter is not correct for the vehicle, the suspension has been modified, etc.

(5) Other

  • When the vehicle is moved forward or backward towards high curbs or objects that are perpendicular to the ground.
  • When driving on a bumpy road, slope, unpaved road or grass, etc.

(b) The sensors cannot detect the following objects:

  • Objects that absorb ultrasonic waves such as people (especially people wearing certain types of clothing), cotton or snow.
  • Objects that are not perpendicular to the path of the vehicle, or are angled away from the ultrasonic sensors, or objects with uneven surfaces.
  • Short objects.
  • Thin objects such as wire, rope, fence or a post.
  • Objects that are extremely close to a bumper.
  • Objects that are tall and protrude toward the vehicle above the detection range of the sensors.
  • Sharp objects.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PARKING SUPPORT BRAKE SYSTEM (REAR CROSSING VEHICLES) FUNCTION

  • *: These objects may be detected depending on the situation.

(1) Static objects.

(2) Vehicles moving away from this vehicle.

(3) Moving objects other than passenger vehicles such as pedestrians, motorcycles or bicycles.

(4) Objects extremely close to the blind spot monitor sensors.

(5) The speed of a vehicle approaching the right or left at the rear of the vehicle is less than 8 km/h (5 mph).

(6) The speed of a vehicle approaching the right or left at the rear of the vehicle is more than 24 km/h (15 mph).

(7) The distance between the radar sensor and an approaching object is too close.

(b) The parking support brake system (rear crossing vehicles) may not be able to detect objects in the following situations:

(1) When the vehicle is parked in a very hot or cold environment.

(2) When foreign matter such as snow, ice or mud is attached to the rear bumper.

(3) During heavy rain or when water is splashing on the vehicle.

(4) When an approaching vehicle is blocked from a blind spot monitor sensor by an adjacent vehicle.

(5) When the vehicle is significantly tilted.

(6) When a tow hook, bumper protector, bumper trim, bicycle carrier or snow removal device, etc., is installed (if it does not interfere with the blind spot monitor sensor, there is no problem).

(7) When the vehicle is equipped with lowered suspension or tires with a diameter different to that of the original.

(8) When the height of the vehicle has drastically changed (the nose is tilted up or down).

(9) When electronic components such as a backlit license plate, fog lights, a fender pole, wireless antenna or stickers are installed near the sensors.

(10) When a blind spot monitor sensor is misaligned.

(11) When several vehicles are approaching with little space between them.

(12) When a vehicle is approaching at high speed.

(c) The parking support brake system (rear crossing vehicles) may not detect
