Buzzing noise when turning left Lexus GS 430 2001


Recommended Posts

Hello there, recently when i start turning left my brake pedal is vibrating slightly and i'm getting that buzzing noise. I believe that should be a ABS sensor, but i don't have any warning lights on the dash. The noise comes only when i'm steering to e certain angle only, it doesn't come every time, but is annoying. Did anyone had problem like this in the pass, since i have no warning lights, i don't know if is actually the ABS sensor it self or something else. The noise comes only when i'm steering left and only when i'm keeping the brake pedal. If i slow down and then turn left without braking the noise doesn't come up. Any help will be helpful.

Thanks

As far as I recall the ABS sensor doesn't show a fault code.

Since the ABS sensor doesn't show a fault code, how can i see witch sensor is the fault one. The problem comes when i'm turning left only. They goes for 30 bucks now, but i don't won changing bought, since one of them is still working correct. Any idea if i can check at with a multimeter?
Thanks

I suspect you have a break in the wire when your steering is turned passed a certain angle and as the signal stops, the vehicle thinks the wheel is locked and applies ABS to try and free it. It could be either front left or right sensor.

You can do a basic test with a meter, you will obviously need to move the steering or play around with the cable to see if you can interrupt continuity. But it may not be a total break with just the signal being attenuated/distorted where you would need an oscilloscope to see that whist the wheel was turning.

Thanks for the info Colin, i will do so and check the connection to see witch one is causing the problem. As far as i'm aware normally is the wire which makes a bad connection with the time and from there it gives a faulty info back. If i can't find witch one it is, ill probably will change bought of them. I found them on ebay for 32 each. Hopefully  they will last at least the half of the time from the original ones. I believe that could be the driver side, since i had at to disconnect the sensor to get around at and most probably the fault comes from there. Thanks again

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
