Toyota CH-R Service Manual: Open in ABS Motor Relay Circuit (C146C)

DESCRIPTION

The ABS motor relay supplies power to the pump motor. While the ABS is activated, the skid control ECU turns the ABS motor relay on to operate the pump motor.

If the voltage supplied to the ABS motor relay (+BM) is too low due to low voltage from the battery or alternator, this DTC may be stored.

DTC No.

Open in ABS Motor Relay Circuit

Any of the following is detected:

  • When the ABS motor relay is actuated, voltage is not supplied to the pump motor.
  • When the ABS motor relay is not actuated, voltage in the pump motor is high.
  • The skid control ECU judges that pump motor operation is abnormal.
  • ABS MTR NO. 1 fuse
  • ABS motor relay circuit
  • ABS motor relay (brake actuator assembly)

  • Inspect the fuses for circuits related to this system before performing the following procedure.

HINT:

When C1241 and/or C1417 is output together with C146C, inspect and repair the trouble areas indicated by C1241 and/or C1417 first.

RECONFIRM DTC

HINT:

This DTC is stored when a problem is identified in the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly).

The ABS motor relay is in the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly).

Therefore, motor relay inspection and motor relay unit inspection cannot be performed. Be sure to check if the DTC is output again before replacing the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly).

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.

(b) Clear the DTCs.

Click here

Chassis > ABS/VSC/TRAC/EPB > Clear DTCs

(c) Turn the ignition switch off.

(d) Start the engine.

(e) Drive the vehicle at a speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) or more for 30 seconds or more.

(f) Check if the same DTC is output.

Chassis > ABS/VSC/TRAC/EPB > Trouble Codes

Result

Proceed to

DTC C146C is not output.

A

DTC C146C is output.

B

HINT:

  • If a speed signal of 40 km/h (25 mph) or more is received by the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) with the ignition switch ON, the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) performs self diagnosis of the motor circuit.
  • If the normal system code is output (no DTCs are output), slightly jiggle the connectors, wire harness, and fuses of the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly).
  • If any DTCs are output while jiggling a connector or wire harness of the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly), inspect and repair the connector or wire harness.
  • If no DTCs were output when reconfirming DTCs, checking for intermittent problems is necessary because it is suspected that the original DTCs were stored due to the poor connection of a connector terminal.
