look under rear of car, at the axils, nearer to the center of car. notice the small gear visable there, there is also sencors there, try cleaning that area as needed. spin the axil to allow cleaning of sencors with qtip and soap ant strong cleaner. Some times very little cleaning is need as to use a presure washer at car wash. ride on
