    yes. they only plug in one way... all are connected.. i can drive the vehicle about 10 miles before it sets the code.. then the abs and traction lights kick on.. thus the system is disabled.

How to change a rear wheel bearing on a 2004 ford taurus???


How to Replace Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly on a 2nd generation Taurus

The following procedure is for a Ford Taurus (VIN S), with rear drum brakes and ABS.

1. Loosen wheel lug nuts, raise rear of vehicle, and support securely on jack stands. Block front wheels and remove rear wheels.

2. Remove brake drum (parking brake must be off).

3. Remove and clean ABS Sensor (Torx E8) with a spritzled rag.

4. Remove grease cap from hub.

5. Remove and discard hub retaining nut (36 mm). This is a compound nut, comprised of several nuts inside a metal cage. Use a 36 mm axle nut socket (e.g., OEM 25206). Many auto parts stores will lend you this socket. A 1/2-inch drive air impact wrench or breaker bar is necessary to remove the nut.

6. Remove wheel bearing/hub assembly from spindle. It easily comes off by hand.

7. Install new Timken Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly, for Drum Brakes and ABS (Part No. 512162). Tighten new axle spindle nut (Dorman 05114) 221 lb.-ft., replace grease cap, and button everything up.

My services traction light comes on on my 05 chevy impala and my abs light doesnt go off neither does my trac light. What could be the problem? and how much would u think i looking at in cost to fix it?


Very common problem. The MOST LIKELY cause is that you have a front wheel speed sensor that is not working properly. This could be due to a bad front wheel bearing assembly or it could be a wiring problem. GM has had a LOT of problems with the wiring harnesses. A company named "DORMAN" makes a harness repair kit. (See picture below) The Dorman part number is: Part Number: 970-041 The wheel speed sensor itself and the wheel bearing come as a complete "HUB" assembly. The wheel bearing should be checked for looseness and the speed sensor should be tested at the speed sensor connector for AC voltage output when the wheel is spinning. If the bearing or the sensor is bad, then you must replace the hub assembly. If this is the case, I recommend using the "Timken" hub assemblies. They are more expensive, but are much better quality. I have had many problems using the cheaper brands. (See picture below) If the wheel bearing and sensor is OK, then the harness should be replaced. You will have to scan your Antilock Brake System (ABS) module to find out which one is causing the light to come on. As far as cost...it depends on exacltly WHAT it needs and WHO is doing the job. There also may be more than one speed sensor giving you problems. Your best bet is to get it diagnosed and get an estimate of repairs. If they try to sell you a hub assembly, ASK them if they actually TESTED the speed sensor. MOST mechanics out there will just throw a speed sensor (hub assembly) at the problem if they have a speed sensor code, only to find out later that the problem is in the harness. Of course, the customer is the one who ends up paying for their incompetence when this happens. dttech_36.jpg

I have a 2003 LS Sport Impala I have relpaced the front wheel bearings twice and have lost the humming noise but still have an issue with the ABS and traction control warning lights being on. I had it...


WHEN YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL DOES THE PEDAL SEEM TO JUMP? IF SO THE MODULE HAS SEEN A WHEEL SPEED SENSOR MPH DROP SIGNALING A BRAKE LOCK UP . OR LOSS OF WHEEL SPEED , IF THATS THE CASE THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS A BROKEN WIRE IN THE VEHICLE HARNESS NEAR THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR CONNECTOR USUALLY WHERE THE HARNESS MAKES A U TURN UPWARDS .

IS THE ABS LIGHT ON ALL THE TIME ORDOES IT RESET WITH A KEY CYCLE?

FIRST OF ALL THE TRACTION CONTROLL AND THE ABS SYSTEM ARE BASICALLY THE SAME SYSTEM.

THERE SHOULD BE SERVICE CODES FOR THE MALFUNCTIONS , FIRST THING IS TO RETRIEVE ALL ABS CODES THEN MONITOR WHEEL SPEED SENSOR INPUTS WHILE DRIVING

HOPE THIS HELPS

2005 impala


All the hubs on the car have the abs sensor built into the hub. The abs system has to be re set to read the sensor . The rear hub bearing if noisy should be replaced. There are wiring harnesses that connect to the abs sensor. The harnesses to each of the abs sensor should be replaced.
