Did you unhook the battery when installed ? Might need to clear memory if you didn't .

SOURCE: ABS is tripping for the past 2 years

Check your ABS sensor on your wheel hub. The ABS sensor may be going bad or needs to be re gaped. You can do the work your self to save you some money, Take the front wheel off and look for your ABS sensor, There is going to be a wire harness along your upper A arms, just follow it to the wheel hub. Give it a good spray with brake parts cleaner and re gap it closer to the speed ring on the wheel hub. If you don't have a feeler gap, you can use a dime as the gap reference. After your have done all that and you still have the problem, you can go to the dealer and have them look up if there was a recall campaign for the ABS activating during low speed stops. Good luck and keep me posted Be glad to help.

SOURCE: hi i'm freddy and i have a problen with my gmc

hi it could be any one of those you have mensioned but i would suggest the most likely cause would be that the brake pads have completley worn down and are just working metal on metal so you need to get the pads changed sooner rather than later.
Also the brakes being gone would also cause the light to come on as the abs wouldnt function properly with the pads worn off.

The first thing i would do is get the brakes checked as you wil probably find this is the cause of your problem as you say the pedal is hard to press this would suggest that the pads do need changing if it is the brakes then this is the cheapest of all the options you mentioned above.
So please get the brakes checked as at the moment it might just be that the pads need replacing but driving around to long will cause you to put grooves into the disks themselves and these are expensive to replace so get it check soon as you can.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It's so much easier to hook up a scanner to read the ABS codes than trying to guess, the brake lite comes on when the fluid is low or your e-brake is on, only takes one click to activate the light.

SOURCE: replace left front wheel bearing on 2002 yukon 4x4 abs

Remove the axle nut. Put a punch in the fins of the rotor to keep the hub from spinning. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Unplu the abs harness. Remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. Remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. Reverse to install. Make sure you torque the three bolts that hold the bearing to the knuckle and the axle nut to the correct torques spec. Failure to do so will cause premature bearing failure. Also use a good quality bearing. SKF is a good brand. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Why does my abs light staying on for I just replace new brakes yesterday and it feels like brakes are stiking when you trune two the right it makes a loud noise


ABS has nothing to do with the base brakes or , maybe you put them on wrong ! better take to a pro ! As long as the abs light is lit the abs portion is none functional ! You have a control module problem or the control motor for abs .

according to your codes your O2 sensor closes to the motor by cylinder 1 is malfunctioningp0135. youalso have a bad wheel sensor right front.this is causing the trans to shift wrong c0035 whick gives you the p1811 code (long shift) if you replace that o2 sensor ( there are usually like 4 on a V6) and replace the front passenger side wheel sensor and reader plate then you problems should correct and the lights should go off after you run the car for a bit. hope it helps.

Hi
The wheel bearing may carry the magnetic ring that the abs sensor uses to pick up a reading.
Replace bearing if its faulty and retest all as before.

Not supposed to use air gun on axle nut

Torque Wrench -- as you did

Check Wheel Sensors -- one may be bad or more
likely the mechanic damaged it.

Use a Volt Meter --put on A/C unplug sensor &

Do all four & compare

Abs trac off and service lights on. test showed that left front wheel speed sesor was bad. replaced it and lights still on. is there a way to reset system or is something else wrong?


I have had new sensor/wheel bearings bad right out of the box. Once the sensor is replaced the system will reset itself. I have also seen a broken wire on the plug that connects to the sensor. If you have an electrical meter ohm the 2 prongs on the sensor on the bearing see if the circuit is bad
