car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Chevrolet HHR

The car involved is a 2010 Chevrolet Hhr. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 3GNBABDB6A_. Please include repairing this issue in the recall of 2010 Hhr vehicles. This is the most recent of multiple incidents where the electronic stability control (esc) activates while traveling straight on dry pavement at speeds between 15 and 30 mph. As a chime sounds, and a message is flashed on the display, the vehicle briefly loses steering and pulls to the right while brake is involuntarily activated. On this occasion, the servicer found the female connectors to the abs speed sensor were not making proper contact. He crimped the new ones tightly when installing the replacement ends. The service advisor admitted that my car is not the only one with this issue, he had seen this problem repeatedly. After turning the car off and restarting, the car continues normally. Fortunately, this has not yet caused an accident. The dealer has variously attributed the problem to mismatched tires (replaced with all new), bad hubs (both replaced), bad speed sensors (replaced), bad alignment (fixed) and a wrongly calibrated steering position sensor (re-calibrated). The vehicle has been towed, repaired repeatedly, and the problem is back again. It was Thursday, December 12, 2013 when this brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue occurred.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Chrysler Pacifica

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. The car had a crash. This is an extremely serious matter that they need to address by Chrysler and the NHTSA immediately. They need recall all of these vehicles before me or my family members or some innocent people are killed due to this defective braking issue. My initial date that this started happening was about a year ago. Although as of the end of 2011 the brake failure began to happen more frequently. I have a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica which has about 100,000 miles on the vehicle. The abs light comes on and goes off all the time. Sometimes it stays on for long periods of time as well and does not reset even after turning the car off. I loose breaking power when this happens as it feels like the brakes are shaking, grabbing, slipping and grinding. It now takes greater distance to stop my vehicle. The feeling is very much life threatening to me and my family as if we are being dragged to our death. It is not a safe feeling, I have to drive my children to and from their activities and school. A complete brake failure happened today 5/20/12 while I was driving with my kids and I almost had a head on collision. I am afraid to drive this vehicle. I do not know if it will actually stop when I apply the brake. I have been researching the problem and have found dozens of others that are having the same problem with their abs light. Many are having speed sensors replaced without fixing the problem others are being told that they need brakes and other electronic components. Chrysler is ignoring the problem and that brakes failure is a serious problem. God please, I do not want to end up having another accident with them in the car as it happened today one today. It really concerns me that there has not been a recall on this vehicle yet. I am pleading to please, please, please, take this problem seriously and to save lives of these many owners and families of the 2006 Pacifica. It was 01/10/11 when this brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue occurred.

I put the truck in neutral but it continued to go forward until my truck ran into the other one. This happened at a very low speed but there was still quite a bit of damage to the trucks. It almost felt like the truck was being pulled forward on its own. I got my truck in to a mechanic and he replaced the left front wheel speed sensor. This accident was small but I could just as easily run into someone in a wheelchair or someone that could not get out of the way. I found out later that the truck was recalled before I owned it (at 43000 miles) for the same problem. The truck now has 103000 miles on it and it appears that the original problem has not been solved. It was Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 when this brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue occurred.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Hyundai Veracruz

The car involved was a 2008 Hyundai Veracruz. While driving down the highway (approx. Speeds of 65 mph), while raining, the vehicle started to stutter, speedometer jumped around, and the esc off, abs and awd warning lights flashed and then stayed on. Once the lights stayed on (no longer flashing) it seemed as though the vehicle drove "normal. " after a day of driving with the lights on they would turn off and problem wouldn't come on again until their was some sort of moisture/precipitation happening; and then once dry would turn off again. Had dealer check vehicle (at the time of check no lights/symptoms occurring) and they said it required a new hecu unit and a new wheel speed sensor (approx. Cost $3,200). They could neither explain why it only happened when it was wet and did not want to troubleshoot beyond the basic code check. Hyundai was contacted and they offered no help - it was only 1,000 over warranty by the time we were able to have it looked at by dealer (which also took 2 weeks to set up appointment with Hyundai tech). Dealer cleared codes and put dielectric grease on the connections. Had no problems for 7 months, and then problem reappeared. Only now the problem is a severe safety risk to myself and others around me. There is no telling (can occur at any speed and doesn't matter how long car has been on or how far driven) when the systems mentioned will fail, and when the lights start flashing I have no ability to accelerate the vehicle until all the lights turn steady and stay on. If this were to happen when pulling out/across traffic it could turn fatal. A quick check on the internet and one will find a host of complaints relating to this same problem. A recall needs to be issued before someone is injured!. This issue happened on Saturday, May. 25, 2013.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Hyundai Sonata

The car involved was a 2009 Hyundai Sonata. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5NPET46C89_. I had to replace the rear brake pads and rotors. The rotors were warped from the pads constantly rubbing on them. Clearly there is a problem here with the number of complaints I see. My mechanic could not believe the damage done to the rotors and told me the front brakes usually wear first. I have also had the vehicle in twice for the rough done shifting that occurs when the vehicle is cold. The dealership reprogrammed the transmission both times but that did not solve the problem. I also had a problem with the esc light staying on but the dealership replaced the rear wheel speed sensor. The failure date was 04/18/13.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Jeep Patriot

Crash was involved with this problem. The Jeep Patriot has an issue with the abs ecu programing. When the abs wheel speed sensor faults the ecu detects it as a wheel speed change. Activating the abs breaks. Unlike every other car when the sensor is faulting it should just simply turn off the abs system and display a fault code. This is dangerous and almost caused me an accident when the brakes started activating on their own. It was 05/30/2013 when this brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue occurred.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Mercury Mountaineer

2003 Mercury Mountaineer awd 4. 0l. We purchased our Mountaineer in June of 2004, with 22,000 miles on the odometer. Approximately 300 miles into our ownership, we experienced a front bearing wine. Dealership covered defect under 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty. Other defects covered. . . Replacement of the rear speed sensor at 23,454 miles. A 2nd abs problem required a new actuator speed control switch assembly at 28,419 miles. Transmission shift solenoid replaced at 32,075 miles. Driver side passenger window motor replaced at 33,443 miles. Recall on rear glass hatch lift struts at 27,379 miles. January 23, 2006 our Mountaineer now has 42,777 miles on the odometer. We noticed a low pitch noise starting at 25-30 mph and becoming higher in pitch at higher speeds. Our local Lincoln / Mercury dealership service advisor determined we had a faulty rear axle ring & pinion gear set. They rebuilt our rear axle using the VIN # to determine actual bill of sales date, which was June of 2003. This gave us a warranty until June of 2006 thus nearing the end of our 36 months warranty. We regretfully admit paying a $200. 00 deductible the dealership asked for. We drove off with our newly rebuilt axle in our Mountaineer. Our noisy axle never went away. The dealership blamed this due to worn and noisy tires. We replaced these tires at 47,500 miles or 4,500 miles after the original axle noise complaint with no real apparent change to our noisy problem. Our Mercury Mountaineer went back into the shop at 48,300 miles with a noise still distinctive from the rear. Again our local Mercury dealership took a look at the SUV with the service manager riding in the vehicle. His comment. . . Sounds like an on-going rear axle issue. He would check with his district manager about replacing the entire axle assembly this time around. They contacted us by phone the next day. They didn't believe it was the axle, but one of the rear outer hub wheel bearing assemblies. It would cost us $270. 00. This brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue occurred Friday, July 21, 2006.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Nissan Sentra

The car involved is a 2007 Nissan Sentra. In November I was driving on the highway for 30 minutes, next thing I know is that I have no power in the engine. The car would not go higher than 20 miles and the revolutions on the motor were as high as 5,000rpm. I lost control of the car because I could not accelerate and I could not stop the car because the brakes were very hard and unresponsive. I could not move the car, it felt like the car had the brake pedal push all the way with emergency brake, I tried to accelerate but it did not move. Had to tow the car to the Nissan dealer service department. After 1 week, the service guys told me the problem was the outpeed speed sensor. After 3 days of using the repaired car, the car did the same thing only this time I almost crashed with another car because I lost control of the car again and the car almost got on fire. From the engine compartment you could see smoke coming out. Had to tow the car again to the Nissan dealer service department with no result because they could not replicate problem. The car did the same to me 2 more times and this time the dealer decided to replace the cvt transmission which I have read they have a lot of problems and because of that Nissan extended the warranty to 10 year 120k miles. After the transmission was replaced I used the car for about 1 month and the car in February did the same again. No engine power, unresponsive brakes, high rpm and smoke coming out from the engine compartment. Until when will I have to deal with this problem??? when will Nissan correct or recall these transmissions, when a life is lost? I took the car more than 4 times before they decided to replace and fix the problem. I'm going back again to Nissan, how many times will this time will be? I have lost more than 3 months with this issue and still the car is not working. Nissan does not have a safety recall and don't seem to take seriously the problem. This problem occurred on Nov. 5, 2011.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of SAAB 9-3

The vehicle identification number (VIN) is YS3FH41U76_. My 2006 SAAB 9-3 aero has a series of unpredictable braking motions. I have had the braking sensor assembly replaced - however brake pressure and control are unpredictable. Letting up on the brake slowly results in a loss of all brake pressure in a non-progressive fashion. There are also times that only by pushing the brake pedal all the way down to the stop that the car can be held in place when idling. This issue happened on 01/06/2008.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Subaru Impreza

The vehicle involved is a 2003 Subaru Impreza. The abs program installed on this car (wrx) is extremely sensitive. Snow covered roads require extreme care because the abs engages ay too easily, resulting in very little stopping power. One time I was making a 90 degree left turn on wet asphalt; I had to brake suddenly. The abs didn't understand and the right side locked for one sec and I drifted off line, barely missing a median. Forget about receiving maximum braking power over any undulating surface (even on a straight roadway), abs intrudes and stopping distance is severely compromised. Nothing has resulted as of today, but who knows what the future will bring. Most drivers will be thrown out by the intrusiveness of the abs program. Conversely, a better than average driver will almost be able to avoid this scenario entirely. I discussed the deal with a dealer and they told me it was all normal. I agree, but the abs is still way too sensitive, and I have proof. I had a wheel speed sensor go out on my right rear side which disabled my abs. I drove the car for a few months afterward and the brakes were much more predictable and twice as easy to modulate. I was enjoying a non-abs car so much that I actually told the dealer it was no big deal and I would get it fixed once I fully understood the system. I eventually got the wheel speed sensor replaced and all is well, except for the fact that abs is still extremely intusive. I now have performance tires on the car and I still can't maximize their ability!. This issue happened on 07/04/03.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Toyota Yaris

The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Toyota Yaris. As I was driving this past winter the abs required maintenance and parking brake came illuminated at the same time. I thought it might have been a frozen connector since the winter has been very cold and bad this year. The speed sensor pig tail and the rear wheel bearing went out. This part was coroded and full of dirt and grime. Even the wires were disengrated. This has happened to other Yaris owners to that I have read on here. This should be a recall. Aproximate cost of fixing this problem is 600. 00. It was Monday, Apr. 14, 2014 when this brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue occurred.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Toyota Scion Xb

The car involved was a 2008 Toyota Scion Xb. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is JTLKE50E08_. After a snowstorm, my abs, vsc, stability control and traction control lights came on. Stayed on. Took to mechanic, they went out. He suspects ice build up. Ran scan. It shows right rear wheel sensor problem. Lights come on intermittently. Son's car is in shop for gm ignition recall for over a month now. So he drove my scion to college. Called me and said lights were on again. I called mechanic, he feels it could be wheel bearing or speed sensor in that wheel, either rust or corrosion due to intermittent lights. He checked it again. Now vsc and traction lights are on anytime car is drive. I am taking it in today for wheel bearing replacement. After reading multiple complaints on this site, I am very upset and disappointed in what I thought was my dream car!!! Toyota needs to issue a recall and fix this problem immediately!. The failure date was 12/16/13.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Volkswagen GTI

The car involved was a 2006 Volkswagen Gti. The VIN of this vehicle was WVWFV71K56_. Car started to exhibit intermittent abs faults which was indicated by dash mil and the following fault codes: transmission module 18255 - please check dtc memory of abs controller abs brakes 00290 - abs wheel speed sensor; rear left (g46) 012 - electrical fault in circuit - intermittent 00290 - abs wheel speed sensor; rear left (g46) 008 - implausible signal - intermittent with the codes present both abs and electronic stability control are disabled. The safety complaint however is that the automatic transmission control is periodically locked out. When at speed (60+ mph) the automatic transmission will shift into neutral. Manual gear select will not put the car back into a drive gear. Dash gear indicator will indicate 6th gear. At lower speeds (~25 mph) the transmission will periodically lock in second gear and will not shift to a higher gear. Manual gear selection also fails. Problem sometimes will not clear despite restarting the car multiple times. There are no indications of an actual transmission problem. The cause seems to be software override of the transmission due to incorrect abs module data. (transmission software seems to think the car is in a skid and is holding gear). So far the abs module,wheel speed sensor, and tone ring have been replaced. Condition is still present. When the transmission problem is present shift lock also does not work. The dealer is currently in the process of replacing the wiring harnesses. It was Dec. 13, 2013 when this brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue happened.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The vehicle was a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta. Intermittently abs light comes on and stays on - at times for minutes, other times hours, even days; then goes off. At times it goes off with intervention as described below; other times by itself. At times the abs light turns on just prior to braking at low speeds/coasting; other times immediately after braking, sometimes along with a noise and brake pedal sinks slightly under my foot prior to brake being applied. Other times the light comes on while driving on the expressway or city streets. Since 12/2006 have taken to dealer numerous occasions and 2 other repair facilities with abs light on, diagnostics always show code 00283, left front speed sensor malfunction, and sensor replaced numerous times. Abs control module replaced 6/2009 at suggestion of dealer (requested old part and in my possession) to remedy problem, but abs light has come on again twice in 7/2009.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Volvo V70

The car is a 1998 Volvo V70. I bought this car used with less than 35k miles in Feb 2002. Problem was a frozen right front brake caliper and a faulty right rear wheel speed sensor which engages the abs unnecessarily/randomly. This did not happen for about a year after owning the car. I have been told by my mechanic that the rear wheel speed sensor failure appears to be quite common because he has seen it in many of the same cars. The part that is used to replace it is also a different part number which leads me to believe that Volvo is most likely aware of this problem as well but have never issued a recall. There were many other problems with the car such as barometric pressure sensor failure, upper motor mount requiring replacing, ac sensor failure, wheel bearing, etc. All within the period of 1 year but none of these things affected the safety/braking of the car so I do not consider that truly dangerous. Those issues involve aggravation and money, not safety. This brake antilock wheel speed sensor issue occurred Saturday, Apr. 5, 2003.

car   Brake Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor problem of Audi S4

The car is a 2000 Audi S4. Crash was involved with the Audi S4. The VIN of this S4 is WAUDD68D5Y_. Audi USA has engineering control and were contacted and present during repair. Under very icy conditions on straight road, during acceleration from very slow speed, vehicle pitched into oversteer condition. Not entirely unexpected, but after a difficult recovery, when all seemed ok, it oversteered again quite violently. This was again recovered, but it appeared that there was an abs brake input , certainly not of my doing. The third cycle was more severe, and I left the road. Neither the brake nor throttle were touched during the whole cycle, but steering inputs were powerful as I attempted to save the day. The separateness of the cycles alerted me to the possibility that the wheel speed sensors had detected a differential speed and applied the brakes. Audi refuses to release any data on the operation of their abs system, and the volatile computer data has gone. . It is noteworthy that some of the control functions previously identified, electronic stability control, etc, are now embedded in the abs . The S4 did not have a stability control mechanism, it now does. This is a very powerful vehicle system, and if it should fail, the consumer should be able to know the criteria under which it should, could operate and/or fail. A years worth of communication has produced zero data from Audi. This issue happened on 11/15/1999.
