My ABS brake and DSC lights turn on and stay on from time to time when starting my car.... I spoke to my landlord, who also is a head tech at my local dealer. He says that I need to replace the control unit ($600) and back left rear tire sensor ($99).
He would charge me $100 for labor, so total to fix would be $800. He is telling me that the "stealership” price is closer to $1350.
I also have a check engine light, that he will be looking at today as well. Wonder how much that is going to set me back
Either way, the DSC/ABS problem does not need to be fixed right away since I will keep my driving to a minimum this winter (I work in NYC, so I take the train into work)
I am just worried about the check engine light ... either way, just wondering if any one out there has had this DSC/ABS problem. I noticed my cruise control has stopped functioning as well (when I experience this problem).
Thanks for your input!
