Toyota Yaris: Smart Key System (for Start Function) / Steering Lock Confirmation Signal Circuit Voltage Out of Range (B279F1C)

Toyota Yaris XP210 (2020-2022) Reapir and Service Manual / Vehicle Interior / Theft Deterrent / Keyless Entry / Smart Key System (for Start Function) / Steering Lock Confirmation Signal Circuit Voltage Out of Range (B279F1C)

DESCRIPTION

This DTC is stored when the SLA input (the steering lock motor activation permission signal) sent directly from the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) to the steering lock ECU (steering lock actuator or upper bracket assembly) is determined to be abnormal.

HINT:

The steering lock ECU (steering lock actuator or upper bracket assembly) is not connected to the CAN communication system. However, the steering lock ECU (steering lock actuator or upper bracket assembly) is connected to the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) via LIN communication and communicates with other components via CAN communication through the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly).

DTC No.

Steering Lock Confirmation Signal Circuit Voltage Out of Range

Either of the following conditions is met (1-trip detection logic*):

  • The steering lock motor activation command circuit has a short circuit.
  • The steering lock motor activation command circuit has an open circuit.
  • Steering lock ECU (steering lock actuator or upper bracket assembly)
  • Certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly)
  • Wire harness or connector

DTC Output Confirmation Operation:

  • Any time
  • *: Only detected while a malfunction is present and the ignition switch is ON.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • When using the GTS with the ignition switch off, connect the GTS to the DLC3 and turn a courtesy light switch on and off at intervals of 1.5 seconds or less until communication between the GTS and the vehicle begins. Then select the vehicle type under manual mode and enter the following menus: Body Electrical / Smart Key. While using the GTS, periodically turn a courtesy light switch on and off at intervals of 1.5 seconds or less to maintain communication between the GTS and the vehicle.
  • The smart key system (for Start Function) uses the LIN communication system and CAN communication system. Inspect the communication function by following How to Proceed with Troubleshooting. Troubleshoot the smart key system (for Start Function) after confirming that the communication systems are functioning properly.
