C1253 Code: Meaning, Causes, and Symptoms | OBD2 Codes
C1253 – Right Front Normal Force Malfunction
C1253 Possible Symptoms
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Warning Light ON,Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
C1253 Possible Causes
Faulty Electronic Brake Control module (EBCM),Electronic Brake Control module (EBCM) harness is open or shorted,Electronic Brake Control module (EBCM) circuit poor electrical connection
The Continuously Variable Road Sensing Suspension (CVRSS) module estimates the road surface and communicates that information to the Electronic Brake Control module (EBCM). The CVRSS module provides a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signal to the EBCM through the left and right normal force signal circuits. The CVRSS module sends each normal force value twice to the EBCM. The possible values of the PWM duty cycle are 20%, 40%, 60% and 80%, with the valid range from 10-90%. The EBCM uses this information to provide improved rough-road braking performance.
