Mazda 6 Service Manual: Precaution

Vehicles with ABS/TCS

1. The ABS warning light, BRAKE system warning light, TCS indicator light and/or TCS OFF light illuminate even when the system is normal.


*1 : In cases where the light may illuminate, only when ABS/TCS HU/CM detects that speed sensor of rear wheel is malfunctioning.

*2 : If battery voltage drops below 9 V

while vehicle speed is greater than 6 km/h {3.7mph},

ABS HU/CM records DTC B1318.


* 1 : DTC U2021 for past malfunction is not recorded in the ABS/TCS HU/CM. DTC U2021 for present malfunction displayed, but goes out when engine coolant temperature rises above 0°C {32F}.

*2 : When malfunctions happen that display DTCs, flashes the ABS warning light.

2. Precautions during servicing of ABS/TCS

The ABS/TCS is composed of electrical and mechanical parts.It is necessary to categorize malfunctions as being either electrical or hydraulic when performing troubleshooting.

(1) Malfunction in electrical system

  • The ABS/TCS hydraulic unit and control module (ABS/TCS HU/CM) has an on-board diagnostic function. With this function, the ABS warning light and/or BRAKE system warning light will come on when there is a problem in the electrical system. Also, past and present malfunctions are recorded in the ABS/TCS HU/CM. This function can find malfunctions that do not occur during periodic inspections. Connect the WDS or equivalent to the DLC-2. The stored malfunction will be displayed in the order of occurrence. To find out the causes of ABS/TCS malfunction, use these on-board diagnostic results.
  • If malfunction occurred in the past but is now normal, the cause is likely a temporary poor connection of the harness. The ABS/TCS HU/CM usually operates normally. Be careful when searching for the cause of malfunction.
  • After repair, it is necessary to clear the DTC from the ABS/TCS HU/CM memory. Also, if the ABS/TCS related parts have been replaced, verify that the no DTC has been displayed after repairs.
  • After repairing the ABS wheel-speed sensor or ABS sensor rotor, or after replacing the ABS CM (ABS motor or ABS motor relay or solenoid valve), the ABS warning light may not go off (*) even when the ignition switch is turned on. In this case, drive the vehicle at a speed of more than 10km/h {6.2mph},

    make sure that ABS warning light goes off, and then clear the DTC.

* The BRAKE system warning light also illuminates when any rear wheel malformations.

  • When repairing, if the ABS/TCS related connectors are disconnected and the ignition switch is turned on, the ABS/TCS CM will mistakenly detect a fault and record it as a malfunction.
  • To protect the ABS/TCS HU/CM, make sure the ignition is off before connecting or disconnecting the ABS/TCS CM connector.
  • To protect the terminal, use the SST

    (ABS/TCS: 49 G066 001, DSC: 49 G066 004) when connecting the tester lead to the ABS/TCS HU/CM connector.

(2) Malfunction in hydraulic system

  • Symptom in hydraulic system malfunction are similar to those in conventional brake malfunction. However, it is necessary to determine if the malfunction is in an ABS component or the conventional brake system.
  • The ABS hydraulic unit contains delicate mechanical parts. If foreign materials get into the component, the ABS may fail to operate. Also, it will likely become extremely difficult to find the location of the malfunction in the event that the brakes operate but the ABS does not. Make sure foreign materials do not get inside when servicing the ABS (e.g. brake fluid replacement, pipe removal).

Vehicle with DSC

1. The ABS warning light and/or BRAKE system warning light and/or DSC indicator light and/or TSC OFF light illuminate even when the system is normal.


2. Precautions during servicing of DSC The DSC is composed of electrical and mechanical parts. It is necessary to categorize malfunctions as being either electrical or hydraulic when performing troubleshooting.

(1) Malfunction in electrical system

  • The control module has an on-board diagnostic function. With this function, the ABS warning light and/or BRAKE system warning light and/or DSC indicator light and/or TSC OFF light will come on when there is a problem in the electrical system.

    Also, past and present malfunction are recorded in the control module. This function can find malfunction that do not occur during periodic inspections. Connect the WDS or equivalent to the DLC-2.

    The stored malfunction will be displayed in the order of occurrence. To find out the causes of DSC malfunction, use these on-board diagnostic results.

  • If a malfunction occurred in the past but is now normal, the cause is likely a temporary poor connection of the harness.

    The control module usually operates normally. Be careful when searching for the cause of malfunction.

  • After repair, it is necessary to clear the DTC from the control module memory.

    Also, if the DSC related parts have been replaced, verify that the no DTC has been displayed after repairs.

  • After repairing the ABS wheel-speed sensor or ABS sensor rotor, or after replacing the control module, the ABS warning light may not go off even when the ignition switch is turned on. In this case, drive the vehicle at a speed of more than 10 km/h {6.2 mph},

    make sure the ABS warning light goes off, and then clear the DTC.

  • When repairing, if the DSC related connectors are disconnected and the ignition switch is turned on, the control module will mistakenly detect a fault and record it as malfunction.

Caution

  • In DSC vehicles, when any DSC HU/CM, steering angle sensor, lateral-G sensor, yaw rate sensor are replaced. Perform the sensor standard point installation of each sensor.

 

  • To protect the control module, make sure the ignition is off before connecting or disconnecting the control module connector.
  • To protect the terminal, use the SST

    (ABS/TCS: 49 G066 001, DSC: 49 G066 004) when connecting the tester lead to the DSC HU connector.

(2) Malfunction in hydraulic system

  • Symptom in hydraulic system malfunction are similar to those in a conventional brake malfunction.

    However, it is necessary to determine if the malfunction is in a DSC component or the conventional brake system.

  • The hydraulic unit contains delicate mechanical parts. If foreign materials get into the component, the DSC may fail to operate. Also, it will likely become extremely difficult to find the location of the malfunction in the event that the brakes operate but the DSC does not. Make sure foreign materials do not get inside when servicing the DSC (e.g.brake fluid replacement, pipe removal).

Intermittent Concern Troubleshooting

Vibration method

Note

- Connectors not fully seated.

- Wire harnesses not having full play.

- Wires laying across brackets or moving parts.

- Wires routed too close to hot parts.

Inspection method for switch connectors or wires

1. Connect WDS or equivalent to DLC-2.

2. Turn ignition key to ON (Engine OFF).

Note

3. Access PIDs for the switch you are inspecting.

4. Turn switch on manually.

5. Shake each connector or wire harness a bit vertically and horizontally while monitoring the PID.
