Hey guys, first post here. I have a 2010 Challenger RT V8 and it has been acting very weird lately. The other day as I was driving, the traction control light, ESP BAS light, and ABS lights all came on at the same time. I did not think much of it, possibly just a sensor. But now something even worse has been happening. The lights will randomly go on and off and when they come on sometimes the car will not respond at all when I press the gas. When I try to accelerate, the car will not go and the traction control light will start to flash. What I have to do is pull off to the side of the road for a bit and put it in park, and then after a few seconds put it in drive and just take off and hope that my car drives. Also I can hear a noise like a grinding sound whenever I try to accelerate sometimes. This gets pretty scary sometimes, especially the few times that it has happened to me on the freeway. Does ANYONE know what is going on??? :frown: I have been reading that it could be a possible wheel speed sensor issue, but would a bad sensor really affect my car this bad?

Hi BeastieR6,

Sorry to hear about this! If you decide to visit your local dealership for further diagnosis I'd be happy to offer assistance if needed. Just send us a PM with your VIN and let me know.

Hey man.. I have the same issue with the abs bas lights.. Its a wheelspeed sensor like you mention.. Intermittenly working.

Could also be yaw sensor gocing bad info to ECU or brake sys causing power to be cut which is causing the stall or limp mode.

That would NOT cause grinding noise tho.

My siggestion is have it hooked up to check for any codes, see what the issues are. Report here and ill try to help.

Thanks a lot man. I took it to Autozone to check for codes, but nothing. As far as the grinding noise goes, I could just be hearing things. It sounded very faint.

hmmm

sounds like itll def. Be a sensor.
WS or yaw.

Something to do with the braking system.

Could also be a cam position sensor (power loss) but that wouldnt cause the abs lights tho, which is why I'm more included to believe its braking system causing issues.

Is there any way for me to test which sensor is bad?

The "grinding sound" doesn't sound good at all?? All those lights, grinding sound................TC (shoe) issue?


Get it checked out.

I agree. I just don't want to spend an arm and a leg at the stealership just for a diagnosis.

Has it had the "P01" TC replacement performed on it? Any dealer can check and verify this with your VIN.

I do not think so man. Could this be the issue??

Most TC shoe failures go fast. A noise, the dash lights up, you lose power, and the engine is damaged. A few folks reported some noise and loss of performance, and got the car to the dealer before the shoe completely broke and let the chain go flying. Saved their motors.


Get it checked, as the P01 costs the owners nothing out of their pocket.

Problem solved. It was indeed the rear passenger wheel speed sensor. Got it changed out and now all is good!
