Ram 1500

  • 25,200 miles
2009 Dodge Ram 1500. While driving through winter conditions it appears that snow and ice build up around the rear brake calipers. Once that ice began to melt a large section of ice fell off. The ice had encapsulated the wheel speed sensor wire and the falling of the ice ripped the sensor wires from the connector. The result was instant loss of traction control, anti lock brake system, and cruise control. This allowed a condition that caused loss of control on ice.
