While taking a curve at a high rate of speed seems like fun, it can also be quite dangerous. Luckily, there are a number of systems on a car that can make taking hairpin turns quickly much safer. The yaw rate sensor is part of the stability system of a vehicle. If the car begins to tilt too much during a turn, then the yaw sensor will relay this to the engine computer. The computer will then apply the brakes on more than one wheel in order to reduce the chance of a rollover accident. Every time that you are driving your car, this sensor will have to work to ensure that the car is not leaning too badly.

Nearly every sensor on a car, including the yaw rate sensor, is designed to last forever. The heat and the moisture that this sensor is exposed to on a regular basis. This type of exposure can make it very hard to keep it running. The heat will start to burn the wires on the inside of the sensor, which will usually lead to it going bad. When you begin to notice that this sensor is going bad, you will need to act quickly.

Leaving this sensor in a state of disrepair can result in you being put in a lot of danger. Without a yaw sensor, a car would lean and like tip over when trying to take steep curves. Replacing this sensor is not easy due to where it is located on a vehicle. Having a professional touch on a project like this will help to ensure that it is successful. Professionals will have no trouble finding and fixing the issues that your yaw control sensor has.

The following are some of things you will notice when there is a bad yaw rate sensor is going bad:

  • The Stability Control Light is on
  • The car feels very loose when driving it
  • The indicator lights for the stability system may come on occasionally

The faster you are able to get your damaged yaw rate sensor fixed, the safer it will be to drive your car at top speeds. A professional will be able to get the right replacement part chosen quickly.
