An addition to my previous post (after talking to my husband more). Three of our wheels were snow packed. Not the wheel wells, but the inside of the wheels. He thinks that this is what caused the problem. The ABS sensors are located there. Having them encased in snow was likely what caused this condition. Solution = clean all the snow off your tires -- and the problem should go away. Sounds like the problem is moisture gets into the ABS sensor or something shorts out with the communications to those sensors.

EGR Temperature Sensor or Circuit
ABS light is nothing to do with code 55 separate fault circuits.
Under dash there are two wires with mini spades at the end, connect one of them to the single black multiplug in position 2. Thats RHS plug inlet when you hold plug with tab lock on top.
ABS sensor should then flash up error coded. Ignore code 11 thats a initial flash to let you nknow the difference between a fast and slow flash.
Let me know what code flashes up and I will tell you the symptom,

I just started reading this forum and noticed that along with the problem, the cruise light is flashing. Subarus have a built in system that, whenever your car throws a code your cruise light flashes, and cruise control is inoperable. I found this out after a $30 code read. Once the code is reset or it resets itself the check engine light is off and the cruise light no longer flashes. My problem was a loose gas cap seal, as it may throw a code at any time, the first thing I would try was retightening the gas cap, within a few miles everything was reset. Now every time I fill up I wipe the filler neck and the gas cap rubber gasket with a drip of gas on my finger before putting the gas cap on, and have not thrown a code since. It is always nice to have paper towels on hand for your hands. (I don't know when Subaru started putting this system on their cars or if it is on all models, but it is on my 2006 Outback Wagon.

SOURCE: abs and traction control
hi if you know for sure it's a wheel speed sensor
remove that wheel
remove the caliper and caliper bracket
remove the brake rotor
there are 3 bolts on the other side of the knuckle(13mm)
remove the axle nut(1 5/16)
remove the hub bearing assembly(you may need to use a hammer on the hub flange)
hope this helps

I had this occur on my 2007 Subaru Tribeca. ABS, Traction Control, Check Engine lights were solid, Cruise Control light was blinking and "Er SS" (commonly misread as Er 55) displayed on Trip Odometer. All lights were cleared after 10 or so miles. It appears this is a Speed Sensor (SS) reading error whereby the computer notices an irregularity with the readings taken from the four wheels. Most often it is a temporary and harmless glitch and sometimes a result of debris that is impeding the sensor's reading at one of the wheels.
