Default Gotta Few questions bout my 2002 SSEI bonne

I have a 2002 bonneville ssei and its a great riding car but i recently changed my front hubs about a month ago, but every once and a while i still get the SSS on my HUD and when im going about 70 on the freeway and slightly turn to the right it feels like it is binding up or something and it kicks on the low trac light and sometimes kicks on the trac off and abs lights on what could that be?

Also what is the base line reading on the boost gauge, is it suppose to start off at 0 or what?

Check the WSS plugs. Might be loose. Or you may have a bad sensor. A scan might tell you which sensor.

At idle you should have about -8 to -9 on the boost gauge.

I'm with Dan on this one. The plugs can do it. Heck..I once had a plug that wasn't clipped to the backing plate do it.

There are other things that can set off the SSS, including steering wheel position sensor, yaw sensor and the EBCM. Always easy to start with the free stuff (check the WSS connectors like Dan said) but if the problem persists you should have the car scanned for codes. You will need someone with a Tech II scanner, since the regular code readers will not scan for chassis codes.

I cleaned up the image links for you.

Yep, that mount looks shot. Hockey pucks work great for a mount don't they.
