I have had the SSS light on since I bought the car. I am finally getting around to fixing it.
During normal driving, almost all the warnings lights are on, as shown in this video
, but in some rare times, all those lights will go off, and the LOW TRAC light will come on (which is normally not on). During those times, if I press the accelerator, the car wants to go, but the brakes are applied. It is the weirdest feeling. You can bypass it by holding the brake pedal down just enough for the car to know it is pressed, and you can continue to drive with the brake depressed. Then after any given amount of time, the LOW TRAC light will go off, and all the other lights will DING back on and everything is normal.
I currently drive with no traction control or ABS.. not the safest.
I brought the car to the dealer for a TECH2 scan, they did it for free since they know I am trying to track this problem down without their help. It showed a history of 3 non-reading wheel speed sensors. LF, RF, and RR. However, during the road test, only one of the WSS was not working, displaying 0 mph, it was the RR.
The mechanic told me to go home and test the WSS. He said if I took off the wheel, and put a multimeter on the WSS on the hub, that when I spin the wheel, it should produce a small voltage.
I have not done this cuz 1. I think its BS, and 2. its been raining 24/7 here and there is no room in the garage. Why are my WSS'* working so intermediately? He cleared all the codes.
What would case the WSS'* to be so erratic?
