Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
I have had the same typical problems everyone else has listed (no coincidence I am sure) Roaring noise in the front end. Wheel bearings have been replaced. The low traction light comes on when it really doesn't seem like it should. Any suggestions? I have read the what sounds like the same description of my problem but have not run across any results of this issue. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
There is a common issue with the 1999-2005 Grand Am with the ABS/Traction Control system. The problem ranges from being intermittant, usually during slow-speed turning manouvers, 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 seperatly.
