Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
How can i test if is the sensor, and what wheel sensor left or rigth
i like a good tip, thank you
The rear wheel sensors are the most likely to go. They are intergrated into the wheel bearing assembly and there is no repair when they go. You have to replace the entire bearing unit. Raise the vehicle and remove the tire to check the electrical connector behind the wheel. It has two contacts. If the circut is open or it does not change state when you spin the wheel, the sensor is bad. You can order the bearing on line of get it from a well stocked parts supply. Price ranges from $85 to over $160.
A reputable garage will charge anywhere from $500 to $750 to do the job depending on where you live.
If you are a serious DIY mechanic, don't let this job scare you off.
My best advice is to test the new part BEFORE you disassemble the wheel, brake and hub. You can plug in the new part and see if the ABS and Trac lights go off. If they do, you have the right side.
Search the web and you will find some great diagrams and sequence info on how to proceed.
I did mine for less than $100 in parts and 4 hours on a rainy day.

You vehicle had (4) sensors one on each wheel my advise it to get your car on a code scanner (ex. snap -on, OTC etc) and that will tell what exactly is the problem, you can't guess. You will be wasting your time. Take it to Auto-Zone they do a check for free. Good Luck
