Just after replacing my lower control arm bushings (and ball joints), I drove my car home and, after about 20 minutes at about 70 MPH, noticed my ABS light went on and my trip odometer indicated an error "SS" or "55" (and I lost cruise control).
I've got 123K on my '05 and considering the recent repair (proximity to the sensor and difficulty we had getting the ball joint out), I'm thinking a wheel speed sensor may have gotten damaged and needs to be replaced. The strange thing is that the light only comes on after 20+ minutes of highway speeds.
I talked with Subaru and other local shops that have ABS code pullers (not just the OBD2 reader), my understanding is that the ABS codes aren't stored in memory, so the only way to know what wheel is having issues is to wait until the light is on and then take it into the dealer ($90) or the local Jiffy Lube ($40) without shutting the engine off.
The dealer will tell me what's wrong, Jiffy Lube will only tell me what wheel has an issue. Any idea the likelihood of something other than the wheel speed sensor going bad? I can get a new sensor for $50, can you help me save some money?
Tanks in advance!
