C0200 Code: Meaning, Causes, and Symptoms | OBD2 Codes

C0200 – Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Signal Malfunction


C0200 Possible Symptoms


Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Warning Light ON,Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)


C0200 Possible Causes


Faulty Right Front Speed Sensor,Right Front Speed Sensor harness is open or shorted,Right Front Speed Sensor circuit poor electrical connection,Right Front Speed Sensor rotor,Sensor installation,Brake actuator (skid control ECU)


C0200 Description


The speed sensor detects wheel speed and sends the appropriate signals to the ECU. These signals are used to control the ABS control system. The front and rear rotors have 48 serrations each. When the rotors rotate, the magnetic field emitted by the permanent magnet in the speed sensor generates AC voltage. Since the frequency of this AC voltage changes in direct proportion to the speed of the rotor, the frequency is used by the ECU to detect the speed of each wheel.
