OIC 524173.04 – Clutch Pedal Potentiometer, Channel 1, Voltage Too Low

OIC 524173.04 (OIC )

Code: 524173.04



This error code is generated when the voltage at the signal input of channel 1 of the clutch pedal potentiometer is less than 0.2 volts. This indicates a problem with the signal lead or the supply voltage of the potentiometer.


The control software may function in a limited capacity or not at all, affecting the operation of the clutch pedal.


Inspect Clutch Pedal Potentiometer:

  • Check the clutch pedal potentiometer for signs of damage or defect. Replace the potentiometer if necessary.

Test Voltage Levels:

  • Use a multimeter to measure the voltage at the signal input of channel 1. Ensure it remains within the specified range. If it is too low, investigate the power source for faults.

Check Wiring and Power Supply:

  • Inspect the wiring and power supply for the clutch pedal potentiometer for any signs of damage, loose connections, or corrosion. Repair or replace any faulty components.

Update Control Software:

  • Ensure that the control software is updated to the latest version. Firmware updates might improve handling of potentiometer signals.

Consult Manufacturer Support:

  • If the issue persists, consult technical support or the manufacturer for further diagnostics and assistance.

Monitor System Performance:

  • After addressing the issue, monitor the system to ensure the voltage remains within the specified range and the error does not recur.


Maintaining proper voltage levels and ensuring good connections are essential for the reliable operation of the clutch pedal potentiometer.
