post #20146 of 26282
That intermittent scraping sound from my rear driver side wheel came up again. Searched online and people suggested applying the parking brake while driving. Doing that fixed the issue it seems, so far. It must be a piece of rock or debris in the brake shield.

Then, today on the highway, my dash lit up with the DSC, brake, ABS, and TPMS lights. All in yellow.

I pulled over to the side and turned the ignition off. Restarted and then TPMS light disappeared but the other three were still lit. After google searching nothing definitive came up so I drove to get my codes read. As soon as I took off, all the lights disappeared.

I don't think you should be driving a decent car.

No, he bought it in great shape for more than the previous owner paid for it.  It has to be decent.

I don't know why I post my car issues here. I should post on the car forums.

Dude, GF, that's not an issue that will go away. Just get the dang thing fixed at a proper tire store.

Had the same issue with scraping/wire sound with one of my cars. Turned out to be a small rock in the brake shield. Dealer removed it, service guy said it could damage rotor.

I thought that was the obvious answer, and there were immediately two posts that gave suggestions:

Saw this double parked on Conn. Ave yesterday.  I've never seen one in the wild.  The g/f had no idea why I snapped a pic of a "run-of-the-mill mercedes"

I have heard about this problem. It's supposed to be fixable by upgrading a specific component. I forgot its proper name, but it's the part of the car that controls the steering wheel, throttle and brake

Happened on my boy's old 530.  It is a single sensor that all of those rely on.  Can't remember the name to save my life

 

edit: it is something that interfaces with the wheel speed sensors

Can you also mitigate it by just not rolling your windows down?
