DTC Troubleshooting: 11, 13, 15, 17

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

1.Disconnect the VSA control unit 47P connector.

2.Start the engine.

3.Measure the voltage between body ground and the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 47P connector individually (see table).

Is there 1 V or more?


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


NO - Go to 4.


4.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

5.Check for continuity between body ground and the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 47P connector individually (see table).

No. 46 
15 (Right-rear) RR +B:
No. 43 
RR-GND:
No. 42 
17 (Left-rear) RL +B:
No. 36 
RL-GND:
No. 37 

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Go to 6.


NO - Go to 8.

6.Disconnect the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector.

7.Check for continuity between body ground and the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 47P connector individually (see table).

DTC Appropriate Terminal 
+B GND 
11 (Right-front) FR +B:
No. 34 
FR-GND:
No. 33 
13 (Left-front) FL +B:
No. 45 
FL-GND:
No. 46 
15 (Right-rear) RR +B:
No. 43 
RR-GND:
No. 42 
17 (Left-rear) RL +B:
No. 36 
RL-GND:
No. 37 

 

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

8.Measure the resistance between the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 47P connector (see table), then measure the resistance between the same terminals after changing the positive tester probe and negative tester probe.

DTC Appropriate Terminal 
+B GND 
11 (Right-front) FR +B:
No. 34 
FR-GND:
No. 33 
13 (Left-front) FL +B:
No. 45 
FL-GND:
No. 46 
15 (Right-rear) RR +B:
No. 43 
RR-GND:
No. 42 
17 (Left-rear) RL +B:
No. 36 
RL-GND:
No. 37 

 

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


YES - Go to 9.


NO - Go to 11.

9.Disconnect the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector.

10.Measure the resistance between the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector terminals, then remeasure the resistance between the same terminals after changing the positive tester probe and negative tester probe.

 

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


YES - Replace the wheel sensor.n


NO - Repair short to body ground in the wire between the VSA modulator-control unit and the wheel sensor.n

11.Check for continuity between the appropriate wheel sensor +B and GND terminals of the VSA control unit 47P connector (see table), then recheck for continuity between the same terminals after changing the positive tester probe and negative tester probe.

DTC Appropriate Terminal 
+B GND 
11 (Right-front) FR +B:
No. 34 
FR-GND:
No. 33 
13 (Left-front) FL +B:
No. 45 
FL-GND:
No. 46 
15 (Right-rear) RR +B:
No. 43 
RR-GND:
No. 42 
17 (Left-rear) RL +B:
No. 36 
RL-GND:
No. 37 

 

Is there continuity in both directions?


YES - Go to 12.


NO - Check for a loose VSA control unit 47P connector. If necessary, substitute a known-good VSA modulator-control unit, and recheck.n

12.Disconnect the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector.

13.Check for continuity between the appropriate wheel sensor 2P connector terminals, then recheck for continuity between the same terminals after changing the positive tester probe and negative tester probe.

 

Is there continuity in both directions?


YES - Replace the wheel sensor.n


NO - Repair short to body ground in the wire between the VSA modulator-control unit and the wheel sensor.n
