It will go off when you turn the ignition off, then after a while come back on.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If this occurred after hitting a pot hole or a large bump in the street most likely this is a failing wheel speed sensor at fault.But there are several sensors that can fail and causes this issue here.The messages and lights you see are all related to one component acting up needing replaced.

What has to be done from here is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool plugged into your vehicles data port that can read all computers in your vehicle.Once this is done any codes set ( and there will be at least one code set) will then need to be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue.

I suspect the wheel that hit the bump or pothole, its speed sensor is damaged needing replaced but since there are several components that can cause this the fault codes do need to be read out to help locate the cause.

A shop or dealer can read out, diagnose and repair the codes for a fee.A local parts store can usually read out the codes at no charge to you and can give you an idea of what is at fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
