There is a common issue with the 1999-2005 Grand Am with the ABS/Traction Control system. The problem ranges from being intermittent, usually during slow-speed turning maneuvers, to constant, every time you drive the car.

The problem usually is tied to the wheel speed sensors, or the electrical connections to these sensors. The front seem more problem-prone than the rear. As 'first-aid', the preliminary step usually involves removing the wheels and inspecting the wiring and connector If everything looks intact continue on.

Disconnect the connector, clean the contacts, give it a dab of dielectric grease, and reassemble. If the problem persists, it is best to have the DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) read to determine the malfunctioning component. Once that is determined, replace the malfunctioning unit. The wheel speed sensor is part of the hub assembly and can not be purchased separately.

Rear bearing


I would be checking first for a seized brake at that wheel as defective bearings normally will still turn by hand and when driven as you describe the noise would be a pronounced grumble. Whining noises occur when driven as you describe because the spider gears in the diff are straight cut and will make a noise when one wheel is spinning and that makes them work

Grinding sound when shift to drive, then loud knocking sound when starting to accelerate. There was no gear oil in rear differential. Could this also ruin the transfer case?


No. If there was no oil in rear diff the problem is probably in there. If the transfer case is bad it's not because the rear diff. It's not possible.

2001 grand prix gt freaking out!


Hello and yes this is a major noise. I would check your oil now right before you ever start the oil again. This noise may have been your engine locking up from really low oil levels and excessive heat from a lot of driving. If this is fine contact me again and we will address more problems if their is more. Thank You.

Front end and rear end differential


The 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee was prone to bad diff bearings because they changed the plant where they were made. The new plant used inferior materials. The only way to fix it is to replace and set the diff clearences.

The rear problem with a 1999 gmc sierra truck


do you know if you have a limited slip rear diff?
if you do your grease is worn out or if the fluid was replaced it need to have a friction modifier put in the diff (can be found at any auto part stores.)

if its not a limited slip diff you might have spider gears going bad. then you need to remove the cover on the diff and inspect your spider gears2f73bce.jpg b440737.jpgand these are the spider gears
