I know this VDC is commonly due to a steering angle sensor.
You need to use an ABS scan tool and check for the following codes.
C1143 (steering angle sensor circuit)
C1144 (steering angle sensor signal)
C1156 (steering angle sensor com cir)
C1163 (steering angle sensor safe)
I'm sure your mechanic read code for yaw rate malfunction.
yaw rate is a sensor on the base of the column and read the steering angle.any time you do alignment or replace steering parts the angle change and the sensor read +or- off zero. driving for some times computer will call for sensor problem.
First make sure the car drive straight,no suspension or steering problem, tire size and pressure is the same and find mechanic with advance scanner to program the sensor to new ZERO.
Don't replace the sensor before give hem the second chance. the new sensor need programming to.
For recode the steering angle sensor you must connect a diagnosis scantool to the data link connector of the car in order to access the ESP ECU (Electronic Control Unit), in other words programm again the steering angle sensor in the ESP ECU. Select the steering angle sensor programming (learning) menu, and follow the steps: put steering wheel in straight direction, then turn steering wheel to the left direction less 15 degrees, then to the right direction less 15 degrees, put steering wheel in straight direction again until the programming was done. Then the ESP light will turns OFF.
All of these faults are dsc/abs faults. the main fault component is the steering angle sensor. you should be able to have the steering angle sensor replaced, reset and clear faults and you should be good to go.
The C0474 code refers to a steering angle sensor located at or near the base of the steering column. Check where the steering column goes through the front of dash and verify the connector is fully seated and locked.
The sensor gets its voltage from the ABS module.
Let me know if it is clean, locked and seated. Make sure there are no pushed out or bent terminals on the connector.
Check this first and we can go from there.
this vehicle uses a steering control module and the antilock control module. Both modules get a signal from the steering angle sensor. We found that the steering module didnot show a steering sensor code but the ABS module did show the code. after checking that the wiring was intact and with good continuity, it was determined that the fault lies in the ABS module. A new ABS module and configuration confirmed the diagnosis. It's fixed!
