Electronic Parking Brake Module Basic Settings
Technician is unable to apply basic settings to Electric Parking Brake (EPB) module.
Condition is only present AFTER, but not limited to, a repair to electronic parking brake or other brake components.
The following conditions may inhibit the ability to perform basic settings:
The electric parking brake (EPB) is engaged.
Faults are stored in either EPB and or ABS control unit.
Hard faults are stored in EPB that are unable to be cleared due to an incomplete repair.
No production change required.
The following steps are to be taken to correct condition:
Correct any faults stored in EPB and or ABS before performing the basic settings of the EPB.
Verify the EPB is not engaged.
For MY 2006, 2007 check if the EPB is set by observing MVB 12.2.
For MY 2008, 2009 observe MVB 7.4.
Reset EPB by performing the following:
Switch OFF ignition.
Wait at least 5 minutes before reconnecting battery.
