Code No. C1049 RR wheel speed sensor control phase time exceeded
















caution If there is any problem in the CAN bus lines, an incorrect diagnosis code may be set. Prior to this diagnosis, diagnose the CAN bus lines (Refer to GROUP 54C, Trouble code diagnosis ).

OPERATION



  • The wheel speed sensor is a kind of a pulse generator. It consists of encoders (a plate on which north and south pole sides of the magnets are arranged alternately) for detecting the wheel speed which rotates at the same speed of the wheels and wheel speed sensors. This sensor outputs frequency pulse signals in proportion to the wheel speed.
  • The pulse signals, which the wheel speed sensor creates, are sent to ABS-ECU. ABS-ECU uses the frequency of the pulse signals to determine the wheel speed.

DIAGNOSIS CODE SET CONDITIONS


This diagnosis code is set if any malfunction below is found:

  • When the brake fluid pressure is decreased for a long time.
  • When the brake fluid pressure is held for a long time.

PROBABLE CAUSES



  • Damaged wiring harness and connectors
  • External noise interference
  • Malfunction of wheel speed sensor
  • ABS-ECU malfunction
  • Excessive gap between the wheel speed sensor and the wheel speed detection encoder
  • Adhesion of foreign materials on the wheel speed sensor
