Question Asked: Can CV axle replacement trigger failure in a front speed sensor?
September 12, 2011, 12:33 PM
I had the CV axles replaced recently and when I picked up the vehicle from the shop I noticed that the ABS light was on. I thought perhaps a sensor had been tripped and would reset itself after some driving. I returned the vehicle to the shop a few days later because the light was still on. They informed me that one of the front wheel speed sensors that the ABS uses had gone out and would need to be replaced. Is it just pure coincidence that this sensor went out while they were replacing the CV axles? Or is it possible that they might have somehow damaged/broke the sensor during the servicing and aren't admitting it? As I've never had any problems with the ABS before it seems suspicious to me that this sensor would break right when I had the CV axles replaced.

Car Review: 2005 Honda Odyssey
August 27, 2009, 12:49 PM
I've owned my Odyssey for over a year now (bought it used.) It's a great van! I wouldn't want any other minivan over the Odyssey. It's great for anyone with several children. There's lots of room and it's great for traveling. My only critisms are that there can be a little road noise in the interior (but nothing horrible) and although it gets respectible gas milage for a large vehicle, it would always be nice to get more MPG. Overall, it's very stylish and reliable, well built, and lots of convenient features.
