Toyota Yaris: Lighting System / Light Sensor Circuit Malfunction (B124400)

Toyota Yaris XP210 (2020-2023) Reapir and Service Manual / Vehicle Exterior / Lighting (ext) / Lighting System / Light Sensor Circuit Malfunction (B124400)

DESCRIPTION

The automatic light control sensor detects ambient light. The sensor creates an electrical signal based on the amount of light detected, and sends the signal to the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU). The main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) turns on or off the headlights and taillights according to the signal.

DTC No.
