P2106 is an information only DTC. Basicly, the PCM saw a problem with another component, your ABS system, and went into forced limit mode. Get a scanner that can read ABS dtc's and you'll find the problem.

X2 that's exactly right but probably going to be a wheel speed sensor if it's in the hub and they replace the whole thing way worth the 100 bucks if they pull it in and clean the medal off the sensor (wheel bearing starting to fail) they fucked you ask the service manager what they do in those cases iv seen dealers do that shit before

could a bad reluctor wheel/sensor cause this? I dont know but i would check each and see what you find.

if the fronts are sending a signal and the rears are sending something else I would guess this might happen but what do i know. lol

If its an extended warranty they probably won't cover it. I deal with them all the time and the hub bearing is a maintenance item. Jack it up and check for looseness if there's movement, its bad. Not that hard to change. I've seen more of them knocked out due to over sized tires then you could imagine. Good luck!

Jack it up by the control arm and grab the tire from the top and bottom and give it a firm push/pull. There should be NO loose play at all.

it was all tight but i did find that one of my half shaft boots is ripped and theres grease all over.....but i dont even see the little teeth for the wheel sensor so id have to take it all apart just to see if theres shit on them
