Hi I am new to the Forum, not sure if I am posting this where it should be.
here is my problem
I have a 2002 Explorer with AUTO 4x4.
When driving there is a humming noise it starts at 15 KMH and it gets louder as i go faster, also the ABS light is on (always).
I was thinking i could be the Wheel bearing (but Im not sure how to find which one of the four).
Also the other day I activated the 4x4 HIGH and when i was driving straight i had no problems, when I made a turn at low speed i felt and heard a rubbing noise (rubber agaisnt metal) and the car would jump a little (there was no different between turing left or right).
not sure what the problem could be or if a bad rear wheel bearing could cause this.
Please let me know if any of you had experience the same problem and if you know a solution.
I really dont want to take it to the dealer and pay $$$$ if the problem could be fixed for less.
I changed the Driver Front Wheel hub and the noise is gone, Finally, (part $170 labour $ 70), the car drives like a baby....
havent tried the 4x4 since i cant really do it on dry pavement, i will wait until a snowstort :)
one thing though, the ABS light is still on, dont know what it is..since the wheel bearing was already changed... any ideas... i heard that unplugging the battery for a couple of minutes could wipe out the code since the code is already stored in tne computer. not sure I ll try ans post back.
