DTC Troubleshooting: 11, 13, 15, 17

DTC 11, 13, 15, 17:  Wheel Sensor (Short to Power/Short to Body Ground/Open)

1.Clear the DTCs using the HDS.

2.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

3.Check the DTCs using the HDS.

Does the VSA and ABS indicators come on, and are DTCs 11, 13, 15, 17 indicated?

4.Check that connectors are installed correctly in the VSA control unit 46P connector and the wheel sensor 2P connectors.

Are connectors installed correctly?


YES - Go to 5.


NO - Reconnect the connector(s) correctly, and recheck.n


5.Check that the appropriate wheel sensor is installed correctly.

YES - Go to 6.


NO - Reinstall or replace the wheel sensor, and retest.n

6.Disconnect the VSA control unit 46P connector.

Is there battery voltage?


YES - Repair short to power in the wire between the VSA modulator-control unit and the appropriate wheel sensor.n


NO - Go to 9.


9.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

10.Check for continuity between body ground and the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 46P connector individually (see table).

No. 30 
RR-GND:
No. 8 
17 (Left-rear) RL +B:
No. 11 
RL-GND:
No. 10 

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Go to 11.


NO - Go to 13.

11.Disconnect the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector.

12.Check for continuity between body ground and the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 46P connector individually (see table).

DTC Appropriate Terminal 
+B GND 
11 (Right-front) FR +B:
No. 29

No. 30 
RR-GND:
No. 8 
17 (Left-rear) RL +B:
No. 11 
RL-GND:
No. 10 

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Repair short to body ground in the wire between the VSA modulator-control unit and the wheel sensor.n


NO - Replace the wheel sensor.n

13.Measure the resistance between the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 46P connector (see table), then measure the resistance between the same terminals and reverse the positive and negative tester probes.

DTC Appropriate Terminal 
+B GND 
11 (Right-front) FR +B:
No. 29 
FR-GND:
No. 28 
13 (Left-front) FL +B:
No. 34 
FL-GND:
No. 13 
15 (Right-rear) RR +B:
No. 30 
RR-GND:
No. 8 
17 (Left-rear) RL +B:
No. 11 
RL-GND:
No. 10 

 

Is the resistance infinity (open circuit) in both directions?


YES - Go to 14.


NO - Go to 16.

14.Disconnect the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector.

15.Measure the resistance between the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector terminals, then measure the resistance between the same terminals and reverse the positive and negative tester probes.

 

Is the resistance infinity (open circuit) in both directions?


YES - Replace the wheel sensor.n


NO - Repair open in the wire between the VSA modulator-control unit and the wheel sensor.n


16.Disconnect the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector.

17.Check for continuity between the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 46P connector (see table), then check for continuity between the same terminals and reverse the positive and negative tester probes.

Is there continuity in both directions?


YES - Repair the wires between the VSA modulator-control unit and the wheel sensor that are shorted to each other.n


NO - Check for loose or poor connections at the VSA control unit 46P connector and the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector. If the connection are good, replace the appropriate wheel sensor, and recheck for DTCs. If the DTC returns, replace the VSA modulator-control unit.n
