Toyota Sienna Service Manual: Identification of noise source

1. Radio Description

  1.  Radio frequency band
  1.  Radio broadcasts use the radio frequency bands shown in the table below.

Radio Description

  1. Service area

Radio Description

  1.  The service areas of AM and FM broadcasts are vastly different. Sometimes an AM broadcast can be received very clearly but an FM stereo cannot. FM stereo has the smallest service area, and is prone to pick up static and other types of interference such as noise.
  1.  Radio reception problems

HINT: In addition to static, other problems such as "phasing", "multipath", and "fade out" exist. These problems are not caused by electrical noise, but by the radio signal propagation method itself.

Radio Description

  1. Phasing
    AM broadcasts are susceptible to electrical interference and another kind of interference called phasing. Occurring only at night, phasing is the interference created when a vehicle receives 2 radio wave signals from the same transmitter. One signal is reflected off the ionosphere and the other signal is received directly from the transmitter

Radio Description

  1. Multipath
    Multipath is a type of interference created when a vehicle receives 2 radio wave signals from the same transmitter. One signal is reflected off buildings or mountains and the other signal is received directly from the transmitter.

Radio Description

  1. Fade out
    Fade out is caused by objects (buildings, mountains, and other such large obstacles) that deflect away part of a signal, resulting in a weaker signal when the object is between the transmitter and vehicle. High frequency radio waves, such as FM broadcasts, are easily deflected by obstructions. Low frequency radio waves, such as AM broadcasts, are much more difficult to deflect.
  1.  Noise problem
    Technicians must have a clear understanding about each customer's noise complaint. Use the following table to diagnose noise problems.

Radio Description

HINT: If the noise does not match the examples above, refer to the descriptions about phasing and multipath.

Vehicle Speed Signal Circuit between Multi-display and Combination Meter
DESCRIPTION This circuit is necessary for the ASL (Auto Sound Leveliser) built into the radio receiver. Speed signals are received from the combination meter and used for the ASL. The ASL function automatically adjusts the sound data in order to enable hearing the clear audio sound even ...
