Toyota issued Service Bulletin in November 2017 with a safety recall for a range of C-HR model vehicles in relation to Electronic Park Brake operation.

Description of Problem

There is a possibility that the skid control ECU may incorrectly identify a small increase in circuit resistance caused by expected oxide film on the electronic parking brake (EPB) motor as an open circuit.
This can typically occur when the EPB has not been operated for a period of time. ECU identification of the open circuit would result in illumination of the EPB warning light, and could make the EPB inoperative. A vehicle with an inoperative parking brake that is not otherwise placed in “Park” (Automatic Transmission) or “Neutral” (Manual Transmission) creates an increased risk of a rollaway if the vehicle is parked on a grade.
