It ran fine after they cleared the codes for that day.
Expert:  eauto replied 11 months ago.

ok so what is it doing or not doing?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
On startup it idles ruff I have to accelerate slowly or it may stall. Above 45 it gets worse
Expert:  eauto replied 11 months ago.

why did the shop just erase the code?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I asked them to, they could not work on it that day.
Expert:  eauto replied 11 months ago.

Well this can be caused by multiple things. I could be as cheap as need the ABS system re initialized and though usually cost about 100 to needing an ABS module and that cost about 700 to needing a steering angle sensor which runs about 400 for the repair to just a wheel speed sensor failure which is about 200 for the repair. With out knowing what codes are in the system i cant tell you what area or give you an estimated cost. Most common of what i see is a failed wheel speed sensor

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Where is that located?
Expert:  eauto replied 11 months ago.

at the wheel hub...but its a guessing game without the code

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Thanks for your input. I am just looking for answers until Monday.
