Thats a sign of the speed sensor.. also the parking brake light being on is another sometimes.

It'* off by itself; I already scanned the code, it said I had a faulty speed sensor, front passenger side.

Annnnd the speed sensor is built into the hub, so I knew I had to replace it eventually. I just wasn't sure if the hub was also making all that noise.

A simple search for TIMKEN Part # 513121 will bring you alot cheaper prices for the part than RockAuto. which doesn't happen the majority of the time.

Yeah, I found it for 80-something, shipped, on Amazon. (It was even cheaper elsewhere, but I trust amazon+they have fast shipping, so I went with them)
