This normally doesn't happen unless there has been a major change in wheel or tire sizes and the vehicle speed sensor was not set to read the change That being said a shop will have to determine if it is the sensor itself, the stepper motor or a programming problem.

    Does not have this vibration at this speed all the time. The vibration quits after reaching 40 MPH. I noticed the right rear tire has more tread depth than the other 3 tires. Could this be the cause.
