Question about 2006 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

2006 toyota landcruiser brake goes limp, pedal goes soft

The brake pedal goes completely soft no matter how many times you pump it. There's no leakage on the wheels, no visible leakage on the master though covered by ABS booster but the brake fluid had gone below minimum in less than 2 months of being filled to max. it displays vcs, abs, tcs. when i remove the abs relay, the error display goes off and the brake acts better. i put it back and it goes soft again, not holding.

Replace your master cylinder. It is leaking out of the back of the master cylinder and into the booster. If you unbolt the master and carefully look into the booster, chances are you will see brake fluid. Replace it, bleed the entire system, and enjoy your truck again.

    There's no leakage from the master cylinder. This model has the nitrogen canister that you have to depressurise before servicing the brake system. There's no trace of leakage anywhere.

How do I reset limp mode on 100 series toyota landcruiser petrol?


d/c battery for a spell. then reconnect it and stat up without touching the accelerator pedal. Let it idle and warm up and then drive it normally. If no help then consult check engine codes to see what caused it to go into limp mode.

THE BRAKE PEDAL TRAVEL ON MY 2008 TOYOTA LANDCRUISER APPEARS EXCESSIVE AFTER MY FIRST BRAKING, BUT SEEMS TO RECOVER A LITTLE AFTER I PUMP THE BRAKE A FEW TIMES. WHATS UP?


My 2008 Landcruiser has the same problem. I am concerned the long travel delays brake action and could be dangerous. I have raised it with the dealer 3 times, paying for a brake fluid change the second time but did not help. Third time the dealer told me he test drove new 2010 vehicle and the brakes "felt the same". DaveA

Brake system or booster


is your pedal hard to push? if so maybe booster. does your pedal slowly drop all the way to the floor? if so definately the master cylinder (leaks internally)
