Question about Chevrolet Monte Carlo
I recently had 2 new rotors, brakes, & a new hub put on the front of my car. 1 month later I turn either way and the car makes a grinding/whining noise, the lights come on saying: Service Traction Control Device, Trac Off, ABS. If I am braking while I am turning the brake pedal gets mushy and pulsates under my foot. Help Please!!

sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.

Testimonial: "That the last thing I wanted to here but "dealership" but the truth sometimes hurt. Not the brakes though (clanking noise)"
Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

THE PROBLEM IS WITH A HUB WHEEL SPEED SENSOR OR MORE LIKELY THE HARNESS LEADING TO THE HUB.
CHECK THE RESISTANCE AT THE HUB CONNECTION, IT SHOULD BE BETWEEN 900OHMS AND 1300OHMS. THEN SWITCH TO A-C VOLTAGE, IT SHOULD BE 100MV WHEN TURNING THE WHEEL BY HAND. IF BOTH CHECK OUT THE PROBLEM IS IN THE WIRING TO THE HUB.
THE RIGHT FRONT HUB USUALLY HAS A BEND, DOWNWARD THEN UPWARD NEAR THE CONNECTOR TO THE HUB. THAT IS WHERE THE PROBLEM USUALLY OCCURS.
NEW HARNESS WIRES CAN BE BOUGHT AT THE DEALER.
