Toyota 4Runner: System Description



(a) This system locks/unlocks the doors remotely. The wireless door lock control system has the following features:

  • The certification ECU performs the code identification process and the main body ECU controls the door locks. A serial data link is provided for communication between the certification ECU and main body ECU.
  • A key-integrated type transmitter is used and it contains the following 3 switches: the lock switch, unlock switch and panic switch.
  • An LED is mounted on the transmitter to show if the battery is depleted.




Door control transmitter

  • Contains the lock, unlock and panic switches.
  • Transmits weak electric waves (recognition codes and function codes) to the door control receiver.
  • Illuminates the indicator light (LED) during transmission.

Door control receiver

Receives weak electric waves (recognition codes and function codes) from the door control transmitter via the electrical key antenna and changes the waves to code data.

Pressing the lock switch locks all the doors.

All door unlock (Unlock 2 operation)

Pressing the unlock switch twice within 3 seconds unlocks all the doors after the driver door is unlocked.

Chattering prevention function

If a switch is pressed, the corresponding switch operation is performed once. If a switch is held down, the corresponding switch operation occurs only once and does not repeatedly activate. When pressing a switch at 1 second intervals, the corresponding operation activates once for every press of the switch.

Answer-back function

  • When the doors are locked by wireless operation, the hazard warning lights flash once and the wireless door lock buzzer sounds once.

If no doors are opened within 60 seconds after they are unlocked by the door control transmitter, all the doors lock again automatically.

Illuminated entry function

  • When the map light door switch is on and all the doors are locked, pressing the unlock switch causes the interior light illumination to turn on and all the doors to unlock simultaneously.
  • If the doors have not been opened, the interior light turns off after approximately 15 seconds.

Door ajar warning function

If any door is open or ajar, pressing the lock switch causes the wireless door lock buzzer to sound for approximately 5 seconds.

Panic alarm function

Pressing the panic switch of the transmitter for more than approximately 0.8 seconds causes the following alarms to activate:

  • Sounds the horn and security horn.
