The Yaw Rate Sensor went out in my Toyota Sequoia 2001. Can I unplug this Sensor until my part gets here in the mail.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jessica Howe, Automotive Expert & Coach at


Unplugging the yaw rate sensor will likely trigger a check engine light, ABS warning light, or a traction control warning light. These systems all work together and rely on the inputs from the yaw sensor, and many other sensors, in order to function properly. There would be no benefit to disconnecting the sensor until the new one comes in. Keep it plugged in if you plan on driving the vehicle in the mean time. Good luck!
