Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service. The diag states to monitor the WSS wheel speed sensor readings in freeze frame data comparing them all and the speedometer reading. Watch for a hiccup greater than 3 mph difference. If you never see this difference then replace the ABS module. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button. Please make sure to select one and press submit. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris

It is not a freeze frame code, it is there data with the code. No check engine light either. Just the fast code
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Everything works as far as the abs system also
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
So your saying you can turn the key on, clear all codes with a scan tool, re-scan again without driving or touching the key and the code is back?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Driving all systems are fine and no other codes pop up
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
Well that is odd. For this code to set you must:be between 1500-3500 rpmsload greater than 49%In drive or reverseVehicle speed greater than 0.6 mphYou have to do 2 drive cycles for this code to store.If the PCM is showing zero speed from the ABS module KOEO then the PCM would be to blame for storing this code.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Welcome to my frustration. I have used several scanners and even disconnected the battery for 24 hours along with dead heading the terminals for good measure. All readings koeo are at zero for speed and all voltage readings are in range
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
More like welcome to working on cars. Seems like I get a crazy one here or at work every 3 days. Since its a P code from the PCM and its storing under circumstances it should not. PCM replacement would be my next step.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have always reserved replacing PCM as a last resort due to the many times in the past that it seemed to be the obvious choice and almost never fixed the problem
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
Well the PCM is storing the code and its getting this info from the ABS. Since both are showing zero speed when the code stores and the fact the code is storing when it physically should not be able to. There is nothing left to point the finger at.If there is something else you ant to replace the try I can provide the directions to do so, just let me know what you want to try?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do you have a schematic of the abs module and PCM with connector veiws? I am working on getting all data but I don't have it yet. I would like to test the signal at the connectors in real time since scanners are often slow and miss small fluctuations
