2008 VUE 3.6L
Default 2008 Vue Wheel Speed Sensor C0035

Sharing general info - My 2008 Vue (3.6L V6, 211k miles) was giving a trouble light for both ABS and TCS. Code was C0035, Left Front Wheel Sensor Circuit. My code reader and this forum advised the (3) most common fixes were to replace the wheel speed sensor, the WSS wiring harness, or the hub and bearing assembly.

1st step - unplug the WSS (behind the wheel), and spray both plugs with contact cleaner. No luck - trouble codes persist.

Next step - replace the hub and bearing assembly (with integrated wheel speed sensor). Cost $130 at local NAPA. Found a helpful YouTube video by 1A Auto for bearing/hub replacement on 2008 Chevy Equinox (FYI - exactly the same for my 2008 Vue for this job - provided torque specs, bolt sizes, and everything). Installed new hub, took car for a quick spin, and both codes immediately cleared. Problem solved. Despite the car being ten years old with 211k miles, the old (original) parts were easy to remove (no rust or seizing). Probably due to living its entire life in the south haha.

#1 - thanks to all on this board for posting their knowledge. Very helpful for an amateur driveway mechanic like me.

#2 - not sure whether anyone has experience with the BlueDriver code readers, but I bought one on Amazon for $100. It was the cheapest one I could find that read ALL trouble codes (including ABS, TCS, etc) in addition to MIL "check engine" codes. You download the free app to your smart phone, plug the reader in to your OBD port, link the reader to your phone's bluetooth, and control the reader from your phone. Told me exactly where the problem was, and suggested specific fixes. Very simple to use. See screenshot attached of phone screen after reader reported the C0035 code.

Posting this info as a "re-payment" of sorts after lurking the forum for a few days working on this fix. Hopefully it helps someone.

Thanks for the post. I seem to have the same code now. Did your old wheel bearing feel bad when you replaced it? Mine feels in really good shape but I already replaced the sensor and wiring up from the sensor without fixing the code c0035.

Default Re: 2008 Vue Wheel Speed Sensor C0035

Hi, Dealer says they pulled out a lot of codes from different modules, the root cause from all of them is low voltage from the generator/alternator, anyone had this similar case?

Thanks

My issue turned out to be in the hub assembly some where as the ABS light went out after replacing the hub.

2008 VUE 3.6L
Default Re: 2008 Vue Wheel Speed Sensor C0035

Apologies for reviving an old thread. My wifeís Ď08 XR V6 6 speed auto is having similar issues. I donít have a sensor tester so I dove right in today. Replaced the rear sensors which didnít solve the problem. Started on the fronts and realized I couldnít remove the sensor.

Does the entire hub assembly have to be removed to get the front sensors out?
...
Kind Regards,
Patrick

2008 VUE 3.6L
Default Re: 2008 Vue Wheel Speed Sensor C0035

Those dust shields and the sensor location are different than mine. The dust shield on mine comes with 1/4Ē of the sensor and cable. Once the sensor bolt is removed, there is no way possible to remove the sensor. Wish I would have taken a picture. I think what I am going to do is use my high speed burr and remove enough material from around the cable so the sensor can be removed and the connector will pass through. This has to be one of the worst designs I have seen.

Kind Regards,
Patrick
