2006 Chevy Impala SS - 95K miles
I was driving the other day and both the "service traction control" and "service brake assist" displayed on the dash, with the ABS light illuminated. I took it to a shop and got the code C0040, which is the right front speed sensor. Since the senor only comes on the hub, I have to replace the whole assembly.
The day before I got these messages, I had changed my car's oil, and since I had spilled some, I was using a water hose to spray under my vehicle and close to the passenger tire. Is it possible that this may have damaged (temporarily or permanently) the sensor? I also notice a slight skid or drag sometimes when I apply the brakes, and after is when the alerts come up. They go on and off.
