Diagnostic Procedure Using a Diagnostic Instrument

Brake Pedal Sensor Calibration

The brake pedal sensor calculates the pedal full stroke according to the preset zero. Therefore, zeroing adjustment is necessary when first installed.Calibration must be performed as following cases.

  • After changing the brake pedal assembly (you cannot change only the sensor).
  • After changing the IEB (Integrated lectronic Booster).
  • When error codes C1380 (calibration) or C1379 (signal error) are detected.
  • After bleeding IEB line.

Brake Pedal Travel Sensor (PTS) Calibration Procedure

The calibration must be done while the vehicle is parked without stepping on the brake pedal and while there is no vibration on the vehicle.

  1. Connect self-diagnosis connector (16pins) located under the driver side crash pad to self-diagnosis device, and then turn the selfdiagnosis device after key is ON.
  2. Select the "vehicle model" and "ESC/AHB" on KDS vehicle selection screen.
  3. Proceed with the test according to the screen instructions.
