Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado
My brake pedal pulsates and abs goes off just when i am about to stop at about 3 to 5 mph, i had it checked at carx and they said they were getting a code from the right front wheel sensor, they said they wanted to replace front wheel bearings at about 500.00 a piece. help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gm has tech service bulitens on this issue.First the abs sensors can and should be removed,inspect the sensor mounting surface for rust (clean w/ sandpaper) insp the sensor (note the sensor may break w/ trying to remove so be gentlel) if all looks ok reassemble and test drive. if unwanted abs still persists both hub bearings should be replaced (call your dealer and ask if a special policy exsits for this condition) usually no abs code w/ be present Good luck Ray..

I'm no guru on ABS, but I don't know that a code will be displayed for a wheel bearing. Usually those sensors are related to the ABS system. I'd get a second opinion on the wheel bearing before paying to have that repair done. I'm not familliar with carx, but I'd be careful they aren't simply resetting a control and charging you for a wheel bearing.

You may just have a bad sensor.i have a 99 gmc same problem.took it to the dealer and they replaced sensor per recall.no charge.recall may not have hit your year yet.i pulled the fuse in mine until it was fixed,it was bothering me.
