Re: Just bought a 2005 500

SO I hooked up my new code reader to the 500 and I had a code for the rear right wheel speed sensor. Ok I can change that but first I went to look at the live stream data and then the code disappeared altogether, and I didn't clear the codes! Has not been back since and I have driven almost a thousa...

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

So I checked it out a little bit over the weekend (thanksgiving here in Canada) I don't have the ABS fuse blown so I will check my ABS codes now. Just waiting for Amazon to deliver my fancy new code reader.

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

Well RockAuto does seem to be the cheapest so far, $256 compared to $284 from Amazon.ca. I think I will go with the RockAuto unit after I do some more fault finding to make sure this is the issue. I will change the Haldex fluid at the same time.

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

I will check that out but last time I ordered from the states I got killed with the exchange, and duty and taxes. I checked with the Ford dealership and they want $470 for it $410 after I told them I was military but still way too pricey for this guy.

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

Best price I can find on the Dorman is $284 from Amazon Canada, I've checked every parts store in my area and all the CDN online parts places and that's the best so far. I haven't even checked the dealership as it will probably be insane in price.

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

I'm in Ontario, Canada if you feel like making a road trip! Lol, I think I need to buy another tool now, still cheaper than if I take it to the stealership for them to fix.

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

I have lights on the dash for both ABS and Traction control, how do you get the codes for ABS and traction control? I have a OBDII scanner but I don't think that will give me those codes.

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

Good to know, I think I was looking at the fluid for the Haldex unit, which I will need if I replace that oil pump. It was dark when I got home last night so I haven't been able to take a good look under there yet but hopefully this weekend. I will check the YT vids for sure. Thanks

Re: Just bought a 2005 500

Thanks for the reply, I drove it home last night and it seemed to work good! Only issue I could see is that the ABS and traction control light are lit up. Quick research showed it might be the AWD coupling oil pump. If the ABD module fuse is blown and if I unplug this pump on the rear diff after rep...

Just bought a 2005 500

Hey everyone, I just joined as I am picking up my first Ford 500 today. I bought a 2005 AWD limited model. It has 120,000 km (74,500 Miles) and is super clean. It was owned by a retired couple that can't drive any more and was maintained well by them. It was $1000 so I hope it was a good deal. The s...
