C1381 – Yaw Rate / Acceleration Sensor Power Supply Voltage Malfunction


C1381 Possible Symptoms


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


C1381 Possible Causes


Faulty Yaw Rate and Deceleration Sensor,Yaw Rate and Deceleration Sensor harness is open or shorted,Yaw Rate and Deceleration Sensor circuit poor electrical connection


C1381 Description


The Skid Control Electronic Control Unit (ECU) receives signals from the Yaw Rate and Deceleration sensor via the CAN communication system. The yaw rate sensor has a built-in deceleration sensor and detects the vehicle’s condition using 2 circuits (GL1: G sensor 1, GL2: G sensor 2). The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the Yaw Rate and Deceleration sensor. The ECM sets the OBDII code when the Yaw Rate and Deceleration sensor is not to factory specifications.
