so you're telling me everything is back to normal? thats so weird im lost lol
the wheels are acting good in reverse and drive.. as for the wheels spinning in neutral before were they spinning fast or just slow movement? and were they spinning in the same direction?
if you shifted from drive to neutral while the car is lifted that might have caused the wheels to keep on spinning


as for the picture with every post its called the "Signature" to edit the Signature do the following

on the top left corner click on "User CP"
again on the left click on "Edit Signature" option under "Settings & Options"
you can enter the text there or the picture

for pictures you can upload it there or upload it to a server such as photobucket.com

and then paste the link there between the [img ] and [/img]

Man I'm really glad your back I feel much better knowing that I'm not alone on this one.

No such luck the light came on 3 times today, with the very slight drag, I did have my fingers crossed and was hoping.....

If I start the car in neutral the wheels will spin always both in the froward direction, but if I step on the brake and then put it in park and then go to neutral they do not spin. The spin was sometimes some what fast and other times just a very very slow spin. I always would apply the brake before any shift was changed to a different gear.

I did notice some grease from the transmission side of the axle shaft where the boot is, I assume I must have forced squeezed some out when I pushed the axle back into the boot to get the wire connector through while installing the hub! Is this something to be concerned about??

Other than this info, I'm going for about an hour drive again as I need to use the car, but I will leave the ABS Maxi fuse in and see what if anything will happen this time.

I tried inserting the picture but all I'm getting is this [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] what am I doing wrong?

Thanks Again

Okay so I drove the car for a total of 1.5 hrs and it didn't act up at all, it'* driving me crazy for sure.

The only message that came up was "Service Stability System" which always comes on and I just hit reset to get rid of it, the ELC solenoid with the leveling lever which is attached to the frame at the left rear wheel frame is defective.....$400 to replace, much to much to pay....and it has been that way for over a year now, to much to replace so I just set the rear shocks to the pressure and height I wanted and then pulled the fuse under the seat so the air compressor wouldn't keep maxing out the rear shocks etc.

Don't know what to tell you it'* really very confusing, that the update.

Looking forward to your reply Thanks!

I didn't scan it again, but it was scanned two months after the hub assemble was changed, and it showed that it was the left front wheel sensor

Could not get the picture inserted, I could get the picture from my desktop into the upload position but it would not up load???? I tried inserting the picture but all I'm getting is this [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] what am I doing wrong?

Why are these communications back and forth not being shown on the original posting thread, I thought they automatic get added to the posted thread so everyone else has a chance to view the same!

Thanks

Okay here is the update on my problem, the "low Traction" light on the dash flashes on first, then it goes off and on the display flashes "Stability System Active" it goes off and "EXP 55" flashes on and goes off....all the 3 flashs take about 5 seconds as the car hesitates slightly as if the brakes were applied slightly to the left front wheel, or the power was cut off from the left front wheel.....

When I remove the ABS 50amp fuse under the hood, there is no slight hesitation, car runs fine, other than then this causes the 3 dash lights to stay on, ABS & Traction Off & Brake Light.....

Someone must have been through this situation before, would appreciate all the help to resolve this problem....Thanks
