The Yaw Rate Sensor is part of your vehicles safety system. It aids in stability control during difficult driving situations, such as maneuvering to avoid a cash. The yaw rate sensor uses a gyroscope to detect the ration of the vehicle, along its vertical axis. Rotation on this axis would indicate a higher probability of loss of control. The information about the amount of yaw is sent your vehicles computer system. This is compared to information about wheel speed, steering angle and accelerator pedal position. If the system detects that the yaw is too great, it will automatically apply breaking to wheels specific wheels. The wheels it applies braking, are calculated by the computer to reduce over-steer or under-steer conditions.

- Check engine light
