2012 Dodge Challenger. ABS and Traction Control lights on.

Customer Question

2012 Dodge Challenger. ABS and Traction Control lights on. Started out intermittent. Took it the dealer and they replaced wheel speed sensor. Now it's on constantly. Then they replaced ABS module. No change. Then they replaced the wheel speed sensor...again, thinking they got bad one the first time. No change. Then they contacted Chrysler and were told to replaced the rear axle or drive shaft? Again, no change. Into this 6 weeks now and NOBODY can figure it out.

Both wheel speed sensors included the entire harness.

Removing the negative battey cable and then reconnecting made no difference.

Have they looked into the steering wheel angle sensor? Although rare, a bad or out of calibration steering angle sensor could cause these symptoms. It can usually be re-calibrated by starting the engine, centering the steering wheel, turning all the way to the left, then all the way to the right, then centering the steering wheel again. shut off the engine then start the engine again and go on a test drive. If the calibration procedure was successful and was the problem, the lights should go off. please try this and let me know what happens. Hoping for the best. Sounds like you have been through enough!

Different expert here.
I dont see the following mentioned - all hub bearings need to be checked for excess play or excess runout that will cause intermittent readings and if ok, check the wheel speed sensor ends for chips or cracks as well as the reluctor rings for chips or cracks in the ring or teeth

All of those were thoroughly checked before the installed the 2nd wheel sensor. The mechanic that's working on it is certified and very conscientious. He's is just really stumped. Chrysler has been very slow to respond to him with ideas. They are now suggesting yet another, (3rd) wheel sensor.
