Trouble Code C1283H

Postby Panther » Fri Nov 14, 2008 5:13 am

This is a steering code, Traction Control System, the comp uses 3 sensors
a lateral accelerometer
a yaw senor
a steering wheel position sensor

it checks all 3 when you start up and move off, if they don't all match the traction control will turn off, and if that happens then you will probaly also see C1288H, this is saying that there is a steering sensor circuit malfunction and will disable the magnasteer

These codes won't cancel untill problem is fixed

Vehicle is safe to drive, just a pest as the DIC will keep telling you it exists, the SWP sensor is probaly the sensor that is a problem.

Have a issue with your C5 Steering let me know, not much I don't know about them
