abs code 56-G NO abs warning light
I am having a problem with my 2001 subaru outback wagon. After driving for about 15 minutes, brakes are holding and getting hot, the steering wheel vibrates and is stopping on it's own when in neutral going down hill. Not only is it killing my gas but the brakes smell and the wheels get hot. The brake pedal is all the way up and hard to press. During driving like this for a little while all of a sudden the brakes free up and it's fine, brake pedal goes down, and everything is freed up and smooth. While still driving the brakes will start to grab again, problem resumes etc. I went to mavis to have it looked at for something else and asked them to look at the problem. After changing all brakes, rotars, calipers, hoses, master cylinder, pcv brake switch, brake system flush, and some kind of brake junction that has 4 brake lines going to it, and brake flush, I still have this problem. I brought the car back and they can't figure it out. They put it on a reader and found a code "56-G sensor open or short to ground" but there is no warning light for abs. When I start the car the usual lights in dash come on and go away like they should, but I never see the ABS light come on with the others, is that normal? If anyone knows what I should do next please tell me. I have seen other similar problems on forums, but not quite like mine. Will subaru charge me for putting their code reader on the car? Also I can't seem to find dashlights to replace burned out ones, and help there? Thanks everyone, I know this was a long post.
