2015 Freemont ABS/ traction control issue

hi guys,
sorry for the long post but need some advice.
i have a 2015 freemont (top of the range) and not long after i bought it, i had the front chamber replaced with an adjustable front chamber. for the life of the car i have been having issues with the ABS and TRACTION CONTROL sensors (this is the 4th time) where the lights on the dash keep coming on every time a turn a corner. fiat has replaced the speed sensor on the wheel/the part but I am wondering if it is possible that the speed sensor/ part is not actually broken and the warning lights keep coming on due to my front chamber not being the original/ adjustable and the computer system has not been upgraded to allow for this.

e.g. speed sensor part (or i think that is what the mechanics called it) was replaced in October 2018, service was done incl wheel alignment in Jan 2019, warning lights began to come on in Feb 2019.

any advice on where or how i could get this confirmed would be greatly appreciated....i dont want to keep driving my car if it is in fact an ABS/Traction control issue but nor do i want to ignore the warning lights thinking that they are just coming on because my computer doesnt register the adjustable chamber.

Hi. And welcome.

I dont fulĺy understand what you have swapped ( chamber).

But any electronic device that is NOT part of the factory build is likely to flag errors.

You can perform a relearn... where the system scans all present devices.


Worth doing this 1st
