Greetings, Fellow Impallians
So after transmission problems, requiring a rebuild... I'm being treated with this new symptom.
My 2006 Imp SS is giving me the following issue, upon making a ~80-90 degree turn (more right than left, but happens in both directions - although I guess it could be said left turns are generally less sharp here in the US....
My dash with flash 'Service Break Assist' followed by 'Service Traction Control' - but then goes away in a few seconds.
I notice no actual effect on my driving experience.
The occurrence seems to becoming more frequent - which may or may not be related to the temperature drop (hanging out around 10F)
Bad sensor? Which one? Where is it located? Can a non-automotive technician replace it themselves? (I can do my own oil & breaks, I've even been known to replace a power steering or water pump)
Am I risking mechanical failure by continuing to drive the car?
***Edited to include Year and trim, make and model should be a given***
I appreciate any input, Thank you.
One or both of the wheel speed sensor harnesses are damaged. Although they are inside a plastic conduit, the wiring can be damaged inside by repeated turns of the steering wheel. A common location for damage is where the harness is crimped with a metal band to hold it in place.
GM makes replacement harnesses (left and right) and are specific to your vehicle (various years, engines, options, etc.).
You can carefully examine each harness and try to determine if there is a break in the wiring (or damage).
If you do a search, there are numerous threads on this forum about the problem.
PS - It is a brake warning, not a break warning.....
