    TC/ABS light come on

    The TC/ABS light come on now and again.

    Just read the codes stored and it comes up with the passenger side ABS sensor open circuit.

    I reset the codes and drove it for a bit and the same code has come back.

    Before I get under the car (Once the crap weather goes) has anyone else had the same thing happen?

    How does the ABS sensor work and can the sensor be changed on its own?

    I bet somethings got caught under the sensor, so it can't register the hub.

    More than likely going to be your CV boot clip.

    Just been out and had a look.

    Cant see anything that doenst look right. Although there isnt much to see as its just a ring around the hub with the CV going into it. Nothing looks broken or damaged so must be inside the unit itself.


    Are all the 5 stud ABS hubs the same and how do you change them?

    I recenly replaced the passenger side front wheel bearing hub assembly as the bearing was noisy, my abs/tc light also comes on occasionally too. i was hoping the new assembly was gonna kill 2 birds with one stone however shortly after driving my coupe after replacing this part the light came back on! must be another bearing assembly faulty! just wish i could read my codes so i knew what the fault is when the light comes on! changing the hub was surprisingly easy though!
