ABS Wheel speed sensors
 
I have the common winter problem of the CEL, Flashing Cruise, and ErSS in the odometer. I've reset the ECU multiple times, cleaned off the offending wheel sensor, read every post on this issue, and keep getting the problem. Turns out, code C0107 has been displaying, indicated RH ABS speed sensor readings are abnormal. I took out the speed sensor and ordered a new one. Question is- anyone know how to test the ohms on this sensor? Should I spray some brake cleaner into the hole where the sensor sits to clean out the hub? Where is the magnetic ring for the ABS that produced the signal for the sensor and how to clean it off?? I'm sure I'm not the only person here with this issue, and it didn't go away on its own (around 1000 miles since it started). thanks, jeff.


I'm currently getting erratic Ohm readings between 30 and 130 ohms w/ the sensor off the car...

ABS wheel speed sensor issue too
 
I don't get the CEL or flashing cruise, but otherwise have the same problem. PDX Tuning diagnosted that it was a bad right front speed sensor. Then they promptly went out of business, or at least stop wrenching on cars.

So today, I replace my right front speed sensor. It's a simple 10 minute job. Unfortunately, I take the car for a test drive and while the clicking is gone, when I hit 40 MPH, the ABS light is back on and "ERR SS" shows up again!

WTF?

Anyone know how to make this go away that does not involve a trip to the stealer? They wanted $90 bucks minimum to R&R this sensor. PDX Tuning was the same price, but they don't do this anymore.

Thanks.

Bringing an old thread from the dead. Also got this code (I suck at searching this site, since I clearly didn't find this previously...used Google :S)

Anyways, any follow-up to either of the above? I'm about to perform this operation (replacement) tonight!? Fingers crossed, everything goes well and the CEL goes away

Sounds like it could be a damaged tone ring. I had that happen to me. There is a thread about my saga. I ended up replacing the damaged hub.

Mendozer 03-21-2013 02:13 PM

Replaced the sensor, CEL's have yet to return. Sounds like problem has been solved.

Not the easiest clip (inside the engine) to change, but got er done :)

Codes ER SS ,P0500 ,C0104,C0107 and C0140
 
Having codes as stated in title have already changed out Front Driver ABS/wheel speed sensor with a Subaru oem one and it still showing its bad which is the c0104..any input greatly appreciated

I have the abs light on and the err ss in my odometer. How can I diagnose which one is bad? Does anyone have a DIY on how to diagnose and replace?

Mendozer 08-05-2014 01:16 PM

Not a pro at this by any means, just pulling info from my previous research on my own personal SS error :rolleyes:

1-) http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea...ighlight=p0500
If you follow this procedure (if its an 05 legacy only), than you should be able to pull a code from the dash.
2-) http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea...ighlight=p0546
Once you have the code, cross reference it with --the .pdf at the bottom of the above thread.
3-) Or if you have an OBD II code reader, it may pump you out the code :).

Good luck :)

There might be a way to read the actual code in the dashboard, but I fail (05 legacy NA)

I went to a local shop , they use the computer to read the abs module code. (simple obd reader can't read the abs code)

After I replaced my abs sensor, the erss code gone away right after I start the engine.
