First post here. Thanks in advance. I have a 07 compass. Abs, traction an 4wd lights come on. Codes for RR wheel sensor (c1044). Wheel speed reads normal on abs sensor data Noticed in awd data wheel speed is measured in rpm. R rear will freeze up around 390 rpm. Code is uo415, implausible abs data Will reset when key is cycled. Ba speed sensor?

Rust and corrosion is the primary reason for ABS sensor issues. Locate and clear any rust flakes or build up from the sensor. Don't scrape or use metal tools directly on the sensor its fragile.

08 Compass w/ Same issue

I have the same issue with both of the sensors in the rear on a 08 Compass Limited 4wd.

The problem is that the clip that is on the rear wheel bearing is completely rusted off. I was able to repair one side and reattach the sensor to the clip.

The left rear clip on the hub is completely gone. Only way I see is to replace the hub entirely but every single rear wheel hub I have come across online has the same review from consumers stating "the clip is not the exact size as the OEM hub and the sensor will not attach".

Has anyone else come across this before and/or did you find a rear wheel hub assembly that has the perfect fitted clip for the sensor?

Without this clip, ABS, Traction Control, 4WD and other functions will not work. Seems like this should have been recalled as I've seen many mechanics complaining about this issue but no one has an answer as to how to fix it.

It could be considered a safety issue. If so the issue will result in a recall if its deemed to be so. It needs to be reported to transport Canada however. Traction control engage when its not required can cause situation which can be unsafe since it modified various drive train activities and brakes which will malfunction.

REPORT IT !!!

Wheel speeds sensors wear out, as mentioned above, you can't issue a recall on a part that gets worn out. 2007 and 2008 vehicles were mentioned above. 7 and 8 years old. Things will start to fail. Sooner if you drive where a lot of road salt is used. Best thing to do is make sure you keep your vehicle clean and wash it often.

Yeah but it's not the actual sensor that's worn out, it's the clip that is mounted on the wheel hub assembly that the sensor attaches to. That one clip will disable all of your safety control features which could result in a lawsuit. All because of a $1 part wearing out.

I've had an 04 Subaru that was recalled for a faulty control arm due to salt erosion so this should still be reported.

You don't need ABS and traction control to keep control of a vehicle, what did people do prior to all those technologies? No need for a recall, yes something broke on your vehicle, its not a normal occurrence, no need to a recall. I"ve had these vehicles for 7 years (2 different ones) and haven't seen that issue,

Still worth reporting and good job owning one of these piece of garbage vehicles, you must be very proud.

And there's a reason why ABS is a standard safety feature because it DOES help prevent accidents. And so does traction control. How about turn yours off during a snow storm and let me know how that turns out.

I actually run ESP full off in the winter time, so under 56kkms/h there is zero intervention by the traction control other than the Brake Lock Differentials, so you know how well it's gone? Just fine not had any issues smashing the vehicle up or otherwise. I can't think of a time when I actually drove with the traction control enabled, other than it automatically goes to partial off when going over 56kms/h.

I used to drive a RWD Town Car year round with no stability control in the winter, never had any issues. If you can't live without traction control or ABS you don't know how to drive. I routinely pull the ABS fuse in the TIPM and drive with zero electronic nannies looking after me.

I'm glad you think these vehicles are a piece of garbage, why don't you keep telling everyone on these forums how much of a piece of **** they are. There are many people who enjoy these vehicles and modify them and have very few issues.

I've heavily modified mine to the point where not much is stock anymore and beat the **** out of it offroad, and other than self inflicted offroad damage offroad I can't complain about the reliability. Yes some vehicles have more issues than others.

I'll be a proud owner of a Compass. I've got a 1 of a kind compass and mods no one else has or has ever attempted to, what can you say you've contributed to the forum with your whole 4 posts? I've only got 443 on here but over 2700 on Jeeppatriot.com

I know my **** you don't, plain and simple go troll somewhere else.
