I was talking to you about the traction control coming on…

Customer Question
Hey dan, i was talking...
Hey dan, i was talking to you about the traction control coming on after i replaced the wheel bearing. And wasnt sure if the axle was bad also. I put the old bearing back in. It drove here just fine, just a noisy bearing. Now tcs is activating with old bearing in also. When on jack stands, in drive back wheels turn fine. Fronts dont, tap the gas amd has a violent bang ( shakes the car) then front tires turn. If i remove abs fuses, it disables awd and doesnt activate tcs. Could it be brake related

Hello again. Do you have a scan tool to monitor wheel sped sensor data? This is the traction control system activating and removing the abs fuse also disables the traction control.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
