CAB 524173.04 – Clutch Pedal Sensor Circuit Voltage Low

CAB 524173.04 (CAB )

Code: 524173.04



Error code CAB 524173.04 is generated when the CAB control unit identifies a low voltage reading from the clutch pedal sensor circuit. This anomaly may be indicative of issues such as a failing sensor, inadequate wiring, or a problem in the electrical connectivity that leads to insufficient voltage being reported. This condition can impair the sensor’s ability to accurately detect and communicate the position of the clutch pedal, potentially affecting the vehicle’s transmission behavior and operational safety.


In response to this detection of low voltage, the control unit proactively commands the vehicle into a ‘PARK’ position to prevent any unintended mechanical actions that might arise from erroneous sensor data. This protective measure is recoverable once the underlying issue is resolved.


  • Inspect Clutch Pedal Sensor: Examine the clutch pedal sensor for signs of damage or wear that could affect its performance. Check for environmental factors like moisture or dirt that might impact sensor functionality.
  • Test Voltage Levels: Utilize a multimeter to check the voltage levels at the sensor output. Ensure these readings align with the manufacturer’s specifications to confirm whether they are indeed low.
  • Examine Wiring and Connectors: Review the wiring and connectors associated with the clutch pedal sensor. Look for any signs of wear, damage, or corrosion that might lead to voltage drops. Ensure all connections are tight and free from oxidation.
  • Replace or Repair Faulty Components: If any part of the sensor or its circuitry is found to be defective, proceed with replacing or repairing these components to restore proper voltage levels and functionality.
  • Recalibrate the Sensor: After any repair or replacement, recalibrate the clutch pedal sensor to ensure it provides accurate readings corresponding to the pedal’s actual position.
  • Reset the Control System and Functional Testing: Clear any fault codes from the control system and reset it to remove the ‘PARK’ command. Perform functional testing to verify that the sensor now operates correctly and that the clutch pedal’s position is being accurately reported.


Maintaining the electrical integrity of sensor circuits in vehicles is crucial, especially for those components directly affecting the drivetrain and safety systems. Regular diagnostic checks and preventive maintenance can help catch issues like low voltage early, preventing more severe problems down the road and ensuring reliable vehicle operation.
