Default ABS light

Alright so I was driving on the highway the other day and all of a sudden my ABS light comes on and my traction OFF light comes on (won't let me turn it back on) and the driver info says service stability system.

What are the possibities that this could be?

either a wheel speed sensor, steering position sensor, or possibly the EBCM. You need a tech2 at the dealer to scan it to see what the problem is.

Wow completely by coincidence, my dad'* friend had a scanner in his truck.
He did say it was the wheel speed sensor in the left front tire.
SO what do I do to fix it?

Maybe because most of the time it turns out to be the wheel speed sensor? This happened to me twice in a 6 month period and guess what it was both times? Wheel speed sensor.

You will have to replace your left front wheel hub assembly. Look to spend around $230 for a new one and dont go for a cheap brand.

Bonz....please review my previous threads on the SSS issue that i have had....i have the SAME issues as Shadow....guess what?.....its NOT a WSS problem...



shotgunning of parts is an interesting way to fix things

Shadow, please get a scan of the ABS system FIRST
