G-Sensor (Decel Sensor)

Print

The G-sensors are used only on the AWD vehicles. The rear is mounted in the trunk under the floor mat while the front sensor is under the console assembly. The sensor transmits acceleration and deceleration information to the anti-lock control unit. This data is used in conjunction with individual wheel speed and engine data, allowing the controller to determine the approximate road friction. This friction factor is then used to compute the proper control of the solenoid valves.
