    Ok I just called the shop they will be checking more with their techs to see what all they really did and they said they will likely take another look. Good to know I don't have to buy another abs module and have it flashed. Thanks for saving me on the extra work that was not needed.

    The Shop that programmed the module has agreed to take a 2nd look and will use the c1285 and c1285 pages you sent me Thanks @joegr

    This may be a dumb question but I will ask anyway but if the carrier bearings are bad would it throw the traction control codes? I am having these replaced next week once my parts come in just ordered the stuff to change them. Also do happen to know how many quarts of Differential Oil I will need. I am also still having the car re-calibrated next week but should I wait till the bearings are replaced?

    The bearing would have to be really bad to affect the wheel speed sensors. It wouldn't alter the calibration in any event.

    You need 1.25 liters (less than 3 pints). You are aware that you have to drop the differential to get the cover off to drain it? Otherwise, you could stick a hose in the fill port and see how much you can vacuum out.

      I do have one question other though on the axle parts do I need the 8.8" ring gear gasket or do I need the 8.0" ring gear gasket I see advance shows both choices so do you know which one I will need?

      2nd gen should be 8.0", but you may want to search on here to be sure. I have seen threads about it before.

        By the way what kind of scan tool could I use on this car to calibrate sensors etc. Obviously the most reasonable priced would be great as I plan to actually purchase another LS once this one is repaired.

        I haven't tried it, but I've heard that Forscan can do a lot.

          So you mean I can possibly do this with my ELM-327? It is a forscan modified tool.
          Edit:
          Actually it will but the Yaw sensor and the steering angle sensor fail to calibrate but I was able to bleed the ABS system though so I can see it will work far as connecting and setting stuff.

          If them two are failing to calibrate should I replace the sensors?

          Only if they are really bad. The steering angle sensor gets dirty and can be cleaned (should just need a good jet of air). Yaw seems like a rare failure.

          So the Yaw and steering angle sensor are one in the same right?
          Edit:
          I see they are different my bad I dunno why I assumed that
          If the steering angle sensor is not working will that cause that yaw to fail then ? I am going to the junk yard tomorrow and will grab another one just in case.

          No, one does not stop the other. Either one being bad stops the AdvanceTrac from working.
