Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual: Brake System Control Module "A" System Voltage System Voltage Low (C137BA2)

Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual / Brake / Brake Control / Dynamic Control Systems / Vehicle Stability Control System / Brake System Control Module "A" System Voltage System Voltage Low (C137BA2)

DESCRIPTION

If a malfunction is detected in the power supply circuit, the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) stores this DTC and the fail-safe function prohibits ABS operation.

This DTC is stored when the +BS terminal voltage meets one of the DTC detection conditions due to a malfunction in the power supply or charging circuit such as the battery or alternator circuit, etc.

The DTC is cleared when the +BS terminal voltage returns to normal.

DTC No.

C137BA2

Brake System Control Module "A" System Voltage System Voltage Low

Any of the following is detected:

  • When the +BS terminal voltage is below 9.5 V, the power source voltage for all speed sensors is continuously low for 60 seconds or more.
  • After the +BS terminal voltage is below 9.5 V continuously for 3 seconds or more, the +BS terminal voltage is below 9.5 V continuously for 7 seconds or more at a vehicle speed exceeding 3 km/h (2 mph).
  • When the +BS terminal voltage is 9.5 V or higher and the vehicle speed exceeds 15 km/h (9 mph), the IG1 terminal voltage is 10 V or less continuously for 60 seconds or more.
  • When the +BS terminal voltage is below 9.5 V and the solenoid relay is ON, the relay contact is OFF continuously for 1.22 seconds or more.
  • When the +BS terminal voltage is below 9.5 V, motor fail-safe relay overcurrent continues for 1.05 seconds or more.
  • Battery
  • Charging system
  • Wire harness and connector
  • Skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly)
