You have to post the 4 digit codes. As you learned, just because a code pinpoints that a particular sensor is detecting a problem, doesn't mean that particular sensor is faulty. That's why you have to do some diagnostics and have the knowledge of the particular vehicle your working on to determine what exactly is causing the issue. So re-scan the SUV and post the codes here and we can try to help further.
