Default Right turn issues

I've seen a few things posted prior, but my issue is a bit different. I have a 2002 SSEi. This winter, I noticed that the Check Tire Pressure message would display every time I started my car, even though my tire pressure was fine all around. That issue has since stopped. Then, as the snow would build up, my Service Stability System message would display frequently, and my Trac and ABS lights would come on my dash. If I shut the car off and turned it back on, it would go away for a bit. Now that there is no snow on the ground, I have the Stability message every so often only if I'm turning right sharply while hitting the gas. This problem is more frequent when there is moister (puddle, raining, etc). Any advice? Is it gonna cost me an arm and a leg?

You need to get a dealer to throw a Tech2 on there to diagnosis the problem. They will be able to tell you exactly what your car is sensing. Chances are that you have a bad WSS (wheel speed sensor), you need to replace the entire wheel bearing to fix that.

It would be worth a few minutes of your time to at least try packing dielectric grease into each of the 4 WSSs.

Thanks harofreak - I was able to get it in the shop and that'* exactly what it was - they're telling me I need to replace the o2 sensor as well - time to open up the checkbook!

Theres a few things you can do to try and fix the O2 sensor before you spend big bucks to have a dealer replace it.

Someone here can probably give you some advice
