    What is the car yaw rate sensor?

    New yaw rate sensor Hamilton

    Your cars yaw rate sensor is a safety component the is present in newer cars. The role of the yaw rate sensor is to detect when your car is tilting too far in one direction. When the yaw rate sensor detects that your car is tilting, changes are made to your car’s traction and stability control systems to prevent the car from tipping or sliding on the road. 

    About yaw rate >

    The yaw rate sensor is usually located near your car’s onboard computer (or ECU). However, in some cars, it can be located near the fuses. Although the yaw rate sensor is designed to last the life of your vehicle, it can break or malfunction and cause problems.

     

    Symptoms of a faulty or damaged car yaw rate sensor:

    Reduced stability control – It is important to note that if you drive safely, the yaw rate sensor should never have to turn on. A broken yaw rate sensor will not protect your car from tilting or sliding excessively in dangerous situations. If you notice your car is more prone to tilting, you should get the yaw rate sensor checked. 

    Traction control light is on – The traction control light will illuminate when a problem is detected in your car’s traction control system. A faulty yaw rate sensor can send incorrect signals to the traction control system, resulting in the light turning on consistently, or intermittently.

    Check engine light is on –  The check engine light may also illuminate if the yaw rate sensor is functioning incorrectly. If your car has a more advanced diagnostics system, it may state directly that there is a problem with the yaw rate sensor via the car fault codes and live data.
