C0197 Pontiac Description

The Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) triggers a yaw rate sensor test every 40 milliseconds and switches the sensor into test mode. The EBCM sends a test signal to the sensor via the test circuit. When the test is run, the measured yaw rate from the sensor to the EBCM must be in the range of 25 degrees per second that is greater or less then 7 degrees per second. At standstill, the vehicle yaw rate is zero. The yaw rate signal at standstill is called the offset. If calibration at standstill is not possible, a quick calibration during driving is done. The measured yaw rate is calibrated to a calculated reference yaw rate signal. Yaw rate sensor sensitivity is estimated by comparison of the reference yaw rate and the measured yaw rate during cornering.
Steering angle centering is the process by which the EBCM calibrates the steering sensor output so that the output reads zero when the steering wheel is centered. The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) steering angle sensor centering process is performed manually.
