Toyota Venza: Lost Communication with Front Satellite Sensor Bus (B161A/8A)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / Supplemental Restraint Systems / Airbag System / Lost Communication with Front Satellite Sensor Bus (B161A/8A)

DESCRIPTION

The front collision sensor circuit (front airbag sensor RH circuit and front airbag sensor LH circuit) is composed of the center airbag sensor assembly, front airbag sensor RH and front airbag sensor LH.

The front airbag sensor RH or front airbag sensor LH detect impacts to the vehicle and send signals to the center airbag sensor assembly to determine if the airbag should be deployed.

DTC B161A/8A is stored when a malfunction is detected in the front collision sensor circuit (front airbag sensor RH circuit and front airbag sensor LH circuit).

DTC No.

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

B161A/8A

  • The center airbag sensor assembly receives a line short circuit signal, an open circuit signal, a short circuit to ground signal or a short circuit to B+ signal in the front collision sensor circuit (front airbag sensor RH circuit and front airbag sensor LH circuit).
  • Front airbag sensor RH malfunction
  • Front airbag sensor LH malfunction
  • Center airbag sensor assembly malfunction
  • Instrument panel wire
  • Engine room main wire
  • Front airbag sensor RH
  • Front airbag sensor LH
  • Center airbag sensor assembly

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK DTC

(a) Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

(b) Turn the ignition switch off.

HINT:

If a communication error occurs, DTCs for both LH and RH sides will be stored simultaneously. To identify the malfunctioning area, turn the ignition switch off and then to ON again.

(c) Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

(d) Check for DTCs (See page ).


Result

Proceed to

DTCs B1613/83 and B1618/84 are not output.

A

DTC B1613/83 is output.

B

DTC B1618/84 is output.

C

HINT:

  • DTCs indicating communication errors will be changed to DTCs indicating errors in initialization by turning the ignition switch off and then to ON again.
  • Codes other than DTCs B1613/83 and B1618/84 may be output at this time, but they are not related to this check.

B

GO TO DTC B1613/83


C

GO TO DTC B1618/84


A

2.

CHECK CENTER AIRBAG SENSOR ASSEMBLY

(a) Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

(b) Clear the DTCs stored in memory (See page ).


(c) Turn the ignition switch off.

(d) Turn the ignition switch to ON, and wait for at least 60 seconds.

(e) Check for DTCs (See page ).


OK:

DTC B161A/8A is not output.

HINT:

Codes other than DTC B161A/8A may be output at this time, but they are not related to this check.


OK

USE SIMULATION METHOD TO CHECK
