Default Service Stability System WSS problem

Hey everyone. My service stability system light came on and my abs, brake and trac off lights are on. I'm pretty sure its one of my WSS'*. had anyone diagnosed or knows how to diagnose which wss it is? And, has anyone ever replaced the sensor? I know the fronts require you to replace the entire hub. Anyone have details on what that entails? Thanks very much!

you need a Tech2 scanner or compatible to be able to tell which sensor is failing.

it could also be your steering wheel position sensor

The wheel speed sensors are built into the wheel hubs, which are not inexpensive. So, you'll want to know which of the 4 is bad, rather than just replacing without knowing. A scan is the only way to know for sure. This is a link that will take you to a how to on a Grand Prix, but the procedure is basically the same.
