Yes you are very right about trying everything but nothing works.. I am going to go to the scrap yard I think. In my country which such an expensive parts car they will likely not allow you into the scrap yard. I will try my luck though! If not I will take their word and get a warranty that it is not a faulty yaw rate sensor.
Sorry a little confused with what you've written... you said you changed it over and still had the same error on ELM (c1281)
Then you changed the sensor on Tuesday and have not seen C1281 or ESP light?
Just to confirm did you change it and still have the error and then it just went away...?
Was the 2008 titanium the same model yaw rate sensor? I know the ST and RS have different ones?
I am touching wood for you - how long has it been? you know you have to boot it a little to get the c1281 light - normally by driving it a little hard!
Also what did you use to clean the 47 pin connector? I have maf sensor cleaning spray? Would that work? Also can I access and remove the 47 pin without removing battery etc.
Appologies if i was not clear enough mate, what i meant to say was i eventually got it working after trying a few things that did not work ie cleaning the connector and trying to recalibrate the sensor.
After that did not work thats when i changed the sensor and BINGO ESP light was gone and DTC code was cleared and has been gone since. You should have seen the smile on my face .
Yes it was the same model yaw rate sensor, straight swap. I am really not sure if the ST and RS have a different one but i would assume so. best way of going about it then if you cant go into the scrap yard yourself is to check the model number on your yaw rate sensor and cross check it with the one from the scrap yard before you buy it and the warranty would be helpful just in case.
I changed sensor on the 25TH of June so its been a week now and all is still well.
i used electrical contact cleaning spray not really sure if the maf sensor cleaning spray would work or damage anything mate sorry.
Highly unlikely mate from what i saw you will need to take the battery out and the battery housing has to come off as well if you wish to access the 47 pin connector. See how the cleaning goes if that does not work i am hopping that its a faulty yaw rate sensor for you as well.
Jus a quick question are you the same person that started a similar topic on the Australian ST Owners Club?
