Customer Complaint = Check engine light on Brake Light on and flashing ABS
1. Using a full function factory compatible scan tool, verify that
communication is possible with any other system (i.e.: engine,
transmission, Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), etc.)
2. If communication is possible with another system, check and verify
continuity from the Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC) pin #7 Green wire to
the ABS controller pin #11 Green/Black wire for an open circuit. An open
circuit will cause a no communication problem. If the wiring checks
normally, proceed as follows.
3. Check for the correct switched ignition power to the ABS controller pin
#15 Black/Blue wire. 12 volts with the ignition on must be present.
4. Check ABS controller pins #17 and #18, both Red/Black wires, for 12
volts at all times.
5. Check ABS controller pins #16 and #19, both Brown wires, for good ground
at all times.
6. If tests 1 through 5 all pass, disconnect the ABS controller for 15
minutes and then reconnect.
7. Attempt to communicate with the ABS controller again. If there is still
no communication, proceed as follows.
8. Using a lab scope, back probe pin #10 at the ABS controller. When the
ignition switch is turned to the on position a series of 11 volt to 0 volt
square wave pulses are sent from the Instrument Cluster (IC) to the ABS
controller via pin #10. It is critical that the clean square wave signal
that pulls all the way to 0 volts is present. A faulty ABS controller will
often back feed voltage to pin #10. Presence of a square wave signal other
than 11 to 0 volts (example a square wave signal of 11 to 5 volts)
indicates the ABS controller circuit board is faulty.
9. Unplug the ABS controller and retest the wiring to pin #10 for a clean
11 to 0 volt square wave signal. If the signal is normal with the ABS
controller unplugged, the ABS controller is faulty and must be replaced

Toyota J2534 Reflash Process
2534 Reprogramming for Toyota Vehicles can be preformed with the Pegisys PC
and the Vehicle Communications Interface (VCI) hardware is J2534-1 and
J2534-2 compliant. What does this mean? The Society of Automotive Engineers
(SAE) J2534-1 standard applies for all emissions-related systems on 2004
and newer vehicles. The California Air Resources Board (ARB) and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have both passed legislation
mandating vehicle manufacturers comply with the standard. SAE J2534-2
standard applies to vehicles older than 2004 and non-emissions systems. VCI
For example, a device compliant to the J2534-2 is required if you want to
reprogram all the supported Toyota controllers and those vehicle older than
2004. The Pegisys PC tool and VCI provide two tools in one and offer a high
end diagnostic tool with a connection to the car and Internet capability
and a J2534 compliant device for vehicle reprogramming. OTC has stood for
value over 85 years and Pegisys delivers!
