 Brake Booster Operating Test

For simple checking of the brake booster operation, carry out the following tests.

1. Run the engine for one or two minutes, and then stop it. If the pedal depresses fully the first time but gradually becomes higher when depressed succeeding times, the booster is operating properly, if the pedal height remains unchanged, the booster is inoperative.

2. With the engine stopped, step on the brake pedal several times.

2. With the engine stopped, step on the brake pedal several times.

Then step on the brake pedal and start the engine. If the pedal moves downward slightly, the booster is in good condition. If there is no change, the booster is inoperative.

3. With the engine running, step on the brake pedal and then stop the engine.

3. With the engine running, step on the brake pedal and then stop the engine. Hold the pedal depressed for 30 seconds. If the pedal height does not change, the booster is in good condition, if the pedal rises, the booster is inoperative.

If the above three tests are okay, the booster performance can be determined as good.

Even if one of the above three tests is not okay, check the check valve, vacuum hose and booster for malfunction.

Inspection

1. Inspect the check valve in the vacuum hose, intensifier and the connecting section.

CAUTION

Do not remove the check valve from the vacuum hose.

2. Check the boot for damage.

Vacuum Pump

1. Check the brake warning lamp in the IGN ON position

NOTE

Brake warning lamp is ON as below conditions.

1. Parking brake warning.

2. Low brake fluid level warning.

3. Low brake vacuum pressure warning.

  • Vacuum pump is abnormal condition
  • Vacuum pump CAN communication is abnormal condition
  • Vacuum switch is abnormal condition

2. Check that the brake warning lamp is ON after the release the parking brake with a sufficient brake fluid level.

If the brake warning lamp is ON, check the below points.

  1. Is the brake warning lamp ON within 5 seconds after IGN ON? (CAN Timeout Error)

NOTE

CAN Timeout Error; The brake warning lamp is ON when the communication fails more than 2 seconds between vacuum pump and cluster.

  1. Is the brake warning lamp ON within 45 ~ 55 seconds?

  1. Is the brake warning lamp ON within 15 ~ 35 seconds after removing the vacuum hose from the brake booster?
