Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual: Left Rear Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit Intermittent (C050C1F)

DESCRIPTION

The speed sensor detects wheel speed and sends the appropriate signals to the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly). These signals are used for brake control.

Speed sensor rotors have rows of alternating N and S magnetic poles, and their magnetic fields change when the rotors turn.

Each speed sensor detects that magnetic change and sends a pulse signal to the skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly).

HINT:

When the connectors between the speed sensor and skid control ECU (brake actuator assembly) are connected, the following waveform is output.

DTC No.

(b) Start the engine.

(c) Perform a road test.

(d) Check the speed value output from the speed sensor displayed on the Techstream.

HINT:

Factors that affect the indicated vehicle speed include tire size, tire pressure, and tire wear. The speed indicated on the speedometer has an allowable margin of error. This can be tested using a speedometer tester (calibrated chassis dynamometer). For details about testing and the margin of error, see the reference chart.

Click here

OK:

The speed value output from the speed sensor displayed on the Techstream is similar to the speed indicated on the speedometer.
