So, your car has a problem.

Wheel speed sensor fault.

What does this mean?

We’re reasonably sure you have a failed wheel speed sensor in the traction control system. The traction control system has a sensor attached to each wheel. It monitors has fast each wheel is spinning, adjusting the brakes if you lose control or drive on slippery roads. This is our best guess based on the information we were given. We are often right, but of course not 100% of time. A mechanic will need to inspect the vehicle to be 100% sure. Here is what will happen once booked: 1. The mechanic will inspect the vehicle and verify the issue. If correct, the mechanic will complete the repair. 2. If incorrect, The Car Savior will review the diagnosis with the mechanic and present you with a quote to repair the vehicle. 3. You can decide whether or not to move forward with further repairs. If you choose not to move forward, you will not be charged anything beyond the diagnosis.

How urgent?

On a scale of 1 to 10, we rate this to have an urgency of 8. Some repairs have very low urgency, and we give those a 1. With these repairs, you can wait for as long as you would like, because it will not ever result in harm to you or your vehicle. These are usually cosmetic damages.

We consider a 5 to be something that will eventually need to be done, but you can likely get away with holding off for a while if other things are more pressing. However, if a repair is close to a 10 (or at a 10), this means you should NOT be driving the vehicle, and should get this repaired as soon as possible.

What happens if I wait?

Repairs will get more expensive by the day. We’d recommend getting it fixed within 1,000 miles to ensure it doesn’t get too expensive. If you are absolutely unable to get it fixed, you can remove the ABS system fuse – disabling the ABS. Driving without the ABS system is risky. There is a reason why they are installed.
