any update on this?
my '06 with around 8k miles on it (yes it doesn't get driven much) was parked in really bad rain for a few days, and when i took it out for a drive last night, for the first 1-2 miles, it felt like the ABS was buzzing slightly every time i'd apply the brake, even from very low speeds. after a few minutes, the BAS and ESP lights came on, and so did the "service 4WD system" light.
the ABS buzzing also stopped right then.
parked it, and after waiting a half hour, set off again. all error messages and lights were gone, but the brake pedal still felt like ABS was engaging even from low speeds. much worse, it felt as if one of the front wheels would suddenly brake on its own, then release!
after reading thru threads here on the dreaded "service 4WD system" indicator, i thought my transfer case was f*cked. but now i'm not too sure, given the other stuff i've read...
i'm out of warranty, someone have any ideas? it seems to me that rust or dirt from being parked out in really really bad rain could have messed up a wheel speed/ABS sensor?
