PROCEDURE


  1. RECONFIRM DTC


    1. Clear the DTCs.

      Click here


      Chassis > ABS/VSC/TRC > Clear DTCs
    2. Turn the engine switch off.

    3. Turn the engine switch on (IG) again and check that no CAN communication system DTCs are output.

      Click here

    4. Start the engine.

    5. Drive the vehicle at a speed of 35 km/h (22 mph) or more and turn the steering wheel to the right and left and check that no speed sensor or yaw rate sensor DTCs are output.

      Tech Tips


      • When CAN communication DTCs are output, inspect and repair the trouble areas indicated by CAN communication first.

      • If a speed sensor or the yaw rate sensor is malfunctioning, DTCs for the steering sensor may be stored even though the steering sensor is normal.

      • If speed sensor and yaw rate sensor DTCs are output simultaneously, repair these malfunctions and then inspect the steering sensor.

      • If DTC C1447 is not output again, the DTC may have been stored due to a temporary loss of steering sensor zero point calibration, such as a loss of calibration due to the power source voltage being low.

  2. CHECK STEERING SENSOR ZERO POINT CALIBRATION


    1. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at 35 km/h (22 mph) or more for at least 5 seconds.

    2. Check that the steering wheel is correctly centered while driving straight ahead.

      Tech Tips

      If front wheel alignment and steering are adjusted as a result of an off-center steering wheel, acquire the yaw rate sensor zero point again after the adjustments are completed.

      OK
      The steering wheel is correctly centered.
