Default ABS/ TC / SSS pain in arse

Well Ive had service stab system for a long time, I have recently gotten ABS and traction control off lights come on at same time.I am going to check and clean up all 4 WSS as I am going to do front brakes but I am wondering since lights will come on when I am just sitting in driveway idling could a WSS still set these off.

Strange as it seems, yes..it can. Mine did when I was having problems with the WSS in the right front. Perhaps it receives a fluctuating voltage from the sensor while just sitting there? Not entirely sure on the cause, but it did.

Well I changed the front brake pads and rotors , while there I checked , cleaned up and put dieltric grease on the speed sensor connectors .However the ABS light and TC light and SSS is still there.I went to automotive place up the street and he said he would scan ABS codes for $40 tomorrow .I figure the dealer charges $80 -$100.I also changed my tranny mount , the old one on the bottom was ripped half off and fluid leaked out.What a difference.

Had ABS scanned and it is drivers side front wheel bearing.Thats what I get for going for the cheap one as I changed that about 6 mths ago.
