is there also a check engine light on with DSC light ?

does the DSC light comes on each time you start up the car or after you start Rolling down the road it comes on and stays on?

89790The 4x4 DSC light only pops up on the highway. It is not on on initial startup. Check engine light is on with misfired on cylinder 2 and 6. But that is new. The 4x4 Dec light has been coming in for years before.

we definitely need the ABS module scanned for faults , cause that is where the fault will be, if you can get it scanned and let me know the codes , I can be more accurate for you

The DSC light coming on after highway driving , usually an ABS sensor is acting up ,especially you have less 100k on it , usually after 100 k , you start seeing ABS module failure.

they can actually hook up the scanner and read the abs wheel speeds and see if any is malfunctioning ?

do you think we canget some faults codes and you can post them back here for me

please let me know

I scanned the ABS and there are no fault codes
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 5 months ago.

does your scanner has a live data capability to read the ABS sensor going down the road ?

the problem is when standing still the fault is not occurring and no fault is being stored in the ABS module only when you are moving?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
it does
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 5 months ago.
