The 96 has rotors on the front. Most likely yours has ABS as well.

I had the front and back brake pads changed and roters ground on my 2002 Saturn VUE, after approx 6 to 9 months the ABS light has come on and has been on for approx 1 year?

The abs is a seperat system from the brakes but needs the brake system in order to function.

The best advice I can give if you want to solve the problem is to have the ABS module scanned for codes. You will need an ABS specific code reader or a hi end multi-function scan tool for this. You can also try your local parts store to see if they can do this. Otherwise you will need to bring it to you local shop or dealer and have them run a diagnosis on the ABS system (there is usually a fee for this).

Once you know the codes, post them here and I'll be happy to help you solve them.

The brake system will continue to function normally while the ABS light is on however, the ABS will not work if there is an emergency stopping situation. My personal opinion of fixing these is find out whats wrong, see how much it cost to repair. If its under $300 its worth repairing for the piece of mind.

ok have ever had the breakes changed before or is there any squeling or grinding thats your brake pads are bad. as far as the whole brake system being replace thats ********* that mechanic is looking for a big bonus. im leaning towards a stuck or sticking calipar would cause it as well as if there is are in the system and will need to be bleed out. no if the roter's are warped u will know it cause the whole front end will shake when step on the brakes but only when u use the brakes. if you can see the brake roter's run your finger tip accros them they should be smooth with no groves or rigges if they have them the pads are bad as well as the roters and will need to be replaced, and a abs secner would kick in the abs. all in all i would take it to a shop u trust.

I replaced the pads on my 2005 Honda Accord. I had

ABS only senses if the wheel is spinning or not.
"Thumping sound" sounds like a bad problem. I've not had thumping sound from my front brakes ever.
I don't know how a caliper could cause thumping.
Is everything installed correctly and do the brakes stop the car??

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?

The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

After replacing front roters and pads - I have

It sounds like the calipers have seized after being pushed back to allow for the new pads. Take ot the new pads press the brake pedle slowly to release the caliper(just enough so it's released almost to full , then push back with your finghr and thumb) one side at a time, coat with copper slip and do the same on the other side. Rgarding the abs, make sure the new pads have the correct electrical connections to complete the abs circut, if not you will have to buy new ones that do. Hope that works

You probably need to surface the rotors and the drums. I have gotten brand new rotors that were so warped that they were below min. thickness (not kidding) after surfacing them. Needless to say, they went back to the parts store. So now I surface every new rotor that I install. Happens to rotors way more than drums, but have hade a couple of drums that were warped when new so I check them before installing them. Good luck. Hope this helps.
