Any historical code means that the fault has not been detected in at least the last 3 drive cycles.

Codes are meaningless numbers without their definitions. No one has them memorized. Always post definitions along with your codes.

=======================
SLOW DOWN - - TAKE A BREATH - -

the "starting point" would be to list the COMPLETE codes -
and their DEFINITIONS exactly as shown here -

also include whether the codes are C-Current or H-History -

example:
P0741 - TCC System Stuck Off - History

that points to an ABS module problem -

RS-0038: ELC exhaust valve short to ground/open circuit
this one basically says the ELC - Electronic Level Control - compressor is shot -

IF the air bladders in the shocks are still good (doubtful)
you COULD install the MONROE AK29 - manual-fill air line kit - around $15 -
and inflate/deflate the shocks as needed when the load changes -

IF the shocks need replacing (VERY likely)
I recommend MONROE 40046 - $90 each - with free shipping -
and use the AK29 manual-fill kit -

T073 . PCM - EBTCM/EBCM Pulse Width Modulation Signal Fault
that points to an ABS module problem - when my traction light first lit up on my dash .. i asked my mechanic .. he says its PROBLY .. just a bad wheel sensor .. and no biggie .. next time we go in there ,, we ll get it ...THE QUESTION would a sensor make the traction light come on ?? or does this code mean i need a need a new module ??

starting multiple threads on the same issue is a NO-NO
it takes up space and makes it hard to follow -

T073 Is more likely either the VSS or one of the wheel speed sensors.

VSS = Vehicle Speed Sensor. It's on the right output shaft. Accessible through the RF wheel house.

VSS ?? means the Vehilcle Suspension ststem ??
From the stickies at the top of this forum's threads page............


Always read all the stickies in any forum of interest - timeless info.

As posted, the VSS is on the right output shaft housing, just in front of where a passenger's toes would point.
