Toyota CH-R Service Manual: Meter Illumination does not Dim at Night

Toyota CH-R Service Manual / Meter / Gauge / Display / Meter / Gauge System / Meter Illumination does not Dim at Night

DESCRIPTION

In this circuit, the combination meter assembly receives auto dimmer signals from the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) via CAN communication. When the combination meter assembly receives an auto dimmer signal, it dims the meter illumination (warning and indicator lights).

The main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) determines whether it is daytime or nighttime based on the waveform transmitted from the automatic light control sensor. If the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) determines that it is nighttime and the headlight dimmer switch assembly is in the tail, head, or AUTO position, the ECU sends an auto dimmer signal to the combination meter assembly.

According to this signal, the combination meter assembly dims the meter illumination.

HINT:

When the meter illumination does not dim at night, there may be a malfunction in the automatic light control sensor, main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU), CAN communication system, wire harness, connector, or combination meter assembly.
