Services Performed
  • Downloaded faults from ABS control unit: C0063:64 Yaw rate sensor plausibility U3003:16 Battery voltage below threshold C1109:64 Vehicle dynamic control switch U3003: Battery voltage above threshold C003A:07 RR wheel speed sensor mechanical fault C0037:07 RL wheel speed sensor mechanical fault No faults stored in engine computer Test plan indicates clear faults and road test in an attempt to verify concern there where no lights on at time of drop off. Cleared faults and road tested, faults have not returned, there is a lot of wheel bearing type noise. Performed basic Trouble shooting test, Checked charging system okay at this time, Checked rear wheel speed sensor for looseness, okay. Test plan indicates reproducing faults and monitoring wheel speeds. Other item will need to be investigated if faults return. Some test plans indicate poor connections, intermittently failing ABS control unit, sensor cluster array failure. Road tested again while monitoring all four wheel speed sensor data, Noted as vehicle is driven for longer periods of time the left front wheel speed sensor data has speed spikes, when making left turns the traction control light flashes and engine power is reduced. After the vehicle drives straight ahead the light stops flashing and power returns. We checked again for codes in the ABS system and there are none. Currently the condition that exists with the left front wheel speed sensor is causing the traction control system to false activate. This condition should be repaired prior to further testing. Measure tire roll out, service data indicates no more than 1/4' of roll out variation, rear tires are at 1' of roll out and front tires are less than a 1/4". Tire measurements front at 79", RR at 79 3/4, LR at 78 3/4. Performed vehicle inspection. Found left rear shock leaking and vehicle has overall poor ride and handling characteristics. Items in need of attention other than initial concern shocks and struts front brakes LF wheel bearing Right rear tire is cupped and very noisy brake fluid is green and low due to pad wear Left rear wiper is split oil leak at engine, monitor oil level Outer tie rods minor play
