Did you check the wiring for the VSS? If it'* just cut or something, you could repair it for less then $1.... No need for a hub if that'* the case.

Is the wheel speed sensor the same as the vehicle speed sensor? I thought the VSS was tranny related..anyway we talked about wiring, I would rather replace the hub, new bearing, new wiring, new sensors. For the cost that I paid for it, I could even get a second without a hassle.

I like having TC and ABS, it did come in handy this winter, and far less people are dying on the roads now.

On another note

Would a bad ETCBM cause an ABS light to come on and force the PCM to throw a P0025 code (shorted WSS). I assume the ETCBM take time to learn and properly program as a regular PCM would.

Now, I havent had an ABS light come on in a while, yet I have already purchased the new driver side wheel hub (spindle)

Thoughts?

I don't really think the ETCBM needs really much time to learn other then the initial up to 80 clicks the first time? Just to get itself calibrated. You maybe experiencing the same issue as me. I have a broken connector clip, so the connection isn't secure.. there'* times that I hit a hard bump and it jars enough of the connector to lose signal that it disengages. ( Guess I should bring out the good ol electrical tape to cure that for now ( but too lazy and busy to pull my rear wheels off ) ). I will be replacing the rear hub/bearings on mine and Tamara'* end of August.

EDIT: I talk to your friend.

It was indeed about 80 kms, then after that, the brakes seemed much better, and all my dash lights went off.

Out of habit I disengage the TC, but knowing somehting was wrong really razzes me.

You talked to my friend eh? very good
