It is very important for the superconducting LSM Maglev vehicle to maintain the safety. Currents induced in suspension and guidance coils arranged on the side wall of a guide way generate a suspension force, a guidance force, etc. In this paper, seven cases of a troubled suspension and guidance coil are assumed. The forces and the torques between a bogie and suspension and guidance coils which contain a troubled coil are calculated numerically at 500 km/h speed. The simulations show that the position and the mode of a troubled coil can be detected by abnormal acceleration shapes.
