Those lights will come on to make u aware that ecm has detected problems in abs and engine system,ecm has stored codes that will have to be read with an obd2 scan tool,codes will point to problem areas to check and repair!

It may appear if there is a particular sensor fails.
Try stopping the indication using the following technique.
Sometimes the problem could be solved.

If you can get an OBD 2 scanner off eBay (US$ 6), you could be able to communicate with your car ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using the smart-phone app.

So that, there is a chance to CLEAR all the error indications.

After that, if problem still persists, it means the vehicle need full scan (you can't do this at home, probably seek a vehicle garage).

I need to replace the abs speed sensor on a 1999 chevy malibu 3.1 engine on the drivers side after the abs wire leaves the the hub bearing assembly wheres does it go and how do i replace it from the...


The abs sensor is part of the bearing. the wire goes to the abs module. the speed sensor is mounted on the backside of the transmission, passenger side. The speed sensor ha s one bolt that holds it in. The abs sensor, you will have to remove the strut bolts , the tierod arm, the caliper and the bracket that holds it, remove the rotor, remove the big nut that holds the cv axle the the hub. Push the cv axle out, and there are 3 bolts to remove to get the bearing out. once you get the bolts out you can knock the bearing out with a hammer. Look where the wire is, as it needs to go back in the same location. Also follow the wire up and you will find a disconnect plug attacvhed to the fender well.

If the check engine light is on, I would take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It sounds like it could be a faulty idle air control valve, but getting the codes should end speculation and identify the faults that the computer has noted. Hope this helped and best wishes.

1999 chevy malibu, stalls, no restart after getting to running temperture. fuel ok, cranks but misfires when hot. cools down and starts. runs good cold. crank sensors ok


Sounds to be a bad ignition module or one of the coil packs. Will need a scan tool to know what cylinder (s) are misfiring in order to narrow it down.
