Toyota Venza: Light Sensor Circuit Malfunction (B1244)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / Lighting (ext) / Lighting System / Light Sensor Circuit Malfunction (B1244)

DESCRIPTION

The automatic light control sensor detects ambient light, converts it into an electrical signal, and outputs it to the main body ECU (driver side junction block assembly). The main body ECU (driver side junction block assembly) turns on or off the headlights and taillights according to the signal.

DTC No.
