Diagnose and fix Impala C0035, C0040, ABS, TCS

GM has issued a service bulletin PIC5992A regarding a C0035, C0040, ABS TCS issue on the vehicles listed below.

2007 – 2013 Chevrolet Impala

2014 – 2016 Chevrolet Impala Limited

2007 – 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix

2007 – 2009 Buick Lacrosse

Description of the ABS light on or TCS light on problem

You may notice the ABS light on or TCS light when turning. GM has identified a possible wiring harness issue running to the wheel speed sensors. The sensor or wiring issue may cause unwanted activation of the ABS system which you’ll feel as a rapid pulsing when slowing down on dry pavement.

The wire damage occurs inside the insulation and cannot be found with just a visual inspection. GM recommends running your fingernail down the wires until you notice a open area. Checking with an ohmmeter may not find the open since this is an intermittent condition.

How to diagnose C0035, C0040, ABS, TCS

Read the stored trouble codes first. When a wheel speed
