Toyota 4Runner: Speedometer Malfunction

DESCRIPTION

The combination meter receives vehicle speed signals from the skid control ECU via the CAN communication line. The wheel speed sensors output voltages that vary according to the vehicle speed. The skid control ECU supplies power to the wheel speed sensors. The skid control ECU calculates the vehicle speed based on the pulses of the voltage.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

If the vehicle speed is outside the allowable range when tested, perform the on-vehicle inspection (See page ).


HINT:

Before starting the following inspection, check tire size and tire air pressure.

PROCEDURE
