Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual: Brake Pedal Switch "A" Stuck On (C00409E,C00409F)

DESCRIPTION

The brake pedal load sensing switch signal turns on when the brake pedal is depressed with a force exceeding a predetermined level.

The skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) uses this circuit to detect if the brake pedal is depressed or not.

DTC No.

(d) Check that the stop light switch display and brake pedal load sensing switch display observed on the Techstream change according to brake pedal operation.

OK:

The Techstream displays OFF / ON according to brake pedal operation.

(e) Slowly depress the brake pedal, and check when the stop light switch assembly and brake pedal load sensing switch turn on.

OK:

First the stop light switch assembly should turn on, and then the brake pedal load sensing switch should turn on.
