When driving the front locks up. The car sounds like the brakes are locking up and the car skids. I have been told it is the yaw sensor. It is necessary to keep on the car?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Isabel, First off - DON'T keep driving your Sequoia. It's NOT SAFE!!! Has the vehicle gone to a shop and been properly diagnosed? OR did someone just give you a guess after hearing about it? I recommend towing it to a professional auto repair center and have it properly diagnosed ASAP!

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Yes it is a necessary component, if equipped. The majority of newer cars are running much more complex electrical systems where one sensor will affect the outputs of multipule modules. Take it to a qualified shop for diagnosis. That sensor may be an issue, but it might not be the only issue.
