Hello Betty, I think you might need new brake pads .

  • Betty loner Apr 24, 2015

    It don't need brake pads. I'm thinking it might be bearings or emergency brake pads if they have them up front. My son replaced rear brake pads & rear emergency brake pads last week. My son is going to take wheel off & see what's going on tomorrow night. Do you have any other ideas?

SOURCE: after replacing the left front wheel bearing on a 2003 ford focus, the abs and traction warning light stay on

The bearings on the wheels has to be installed one way only, the rotor ring is built into the bearing and if installed the wrong way round the sensor cant pick up the wheel speed causing the ligt to be switched on in the cluster. The diagnostic equipment should pick this up as a fault once the car has been driven, it will see the sensor when you do the diagnostic if the car is standing still but once the car is moving and no signal is send from that wheel it would register a fault into the memory of the PCM that you would be able to retrieve later.
There is a way for you to test the sensor yourself by using a multimeter set on volts, you jack the vehicle up at that wheel, install a vehicle stand to support the vehicle to be safe, disconect the wheel speed sensor and probe the two wires into the sensor, spin the wheel by hand and a small amount of current will be produced meaning the the sensor is working and the wheel bearing is installed the correct way, you can also do a continuaty test on the sensor by switching the multimeter onto ohms, but be very carefull, if this sensor has three wires you cant do the continuaty test because of the integrated circuit in the sensor, the three wire sensors opperate on a voltage from 5Volt and it would be destroyed by the multimeter opperating on 9Volt.
If the continuaty test passes and the bearing is installed the correct way, the most comon fault would be a break in the wiring leading to the PCM
Hope this will be helpfull.

SOURCE: Scraping grinding noise in front passenger side

When both a scraping and grinding noise is heard from a wheel, it typically indicates a problem with the brakes, not the bearings. If when the brakes are applied, the noise changes, it does indicate a possible brake issue. I would first check the brakes and then take a close look at the bearings, as they can still cause the grinding noise, but not typically the scraping noise. Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: abs light stays on funny noise in front driver

You can have a scanner read the abs code, more than likely if you have a growling or humming noise in the Left front then a wheel bearing is bad. the abs in these trucks has the front speed sensors bolted into the wheel bearings, if the bearing gets bad it will sometimes cause the light to come on due to things like broken or "shifting" tone ring, lifted sensor (air gap) due to corrosion, etc... buying an aftermarket bearing comes with a sensor already installed and so normally will fix the problem (if the scanner says that the same sensor is causing the fault of course). check the bearing by jacking up the side of the vehicle you suspect, use a jack stand to support the truck from dropping accidentally, grab the wheel on top and bottom, one hand on each, then rock the wheel to check for play, there should be none, play could indicate a faulty bearing, or some other component. now check for roughness and noise in the bearing by placing one hand on the spring, either coil spring or torsion bar, and spin the wheel by hand, if the bearing is bad you will feel a vibration coming through the spring, you may also hear the "roar" or "hum" of the bearing when it is spinning. This will tell you if the bearing is actually at fault. if you are not comfortable doing this yourself bring it to a qualified mechanic and have them check for you, also a scanner to check the code should be done also to ensure more then one problem does not exist. hope this will help you. cheers

My Traxtion and ABS lights come on at same time and noise come from front area of car. What does this mean?


Depending on what car you have. It's as though you have an abs ring/sensor fault, the noise you are hearing is the abs pump working this is because the gap between the abs sensor and the abs ring is to close, which make's the abs control module think that the wheel has locked up. causing it to open the valves in the abs hydro unit to try take away the pressure from the side with the fault.

Light thumping sound when turning,could this be brakes


Could be universal joints, struts, or wheel bearings too! Get underneath your car, put your front end on Jack-Stands for safety, and grab hold of the tie-rods and check for movement up and down. If they seem tight, do the same with your front struts... it's movement your looking for. Spin the front wheels with the wheel covers off and listen for noise. They should spin freely. Brakes usually make a scraping sound... metal to metal. Any thumping when you brake hard... like a panic stop is normal. The ABS brakes are supposed to do this.

Abs light on with code 0285


00285 - ABS Wheel Speed Sensor Front Right (G45)

Remove the front right wheel, confirm that the tone wheel is intact and not all flaked with rust. If it looks good, scrape out the gaps and get a new wheel speed sensor.

The abs lighton my 2000 mercury mystique comes on and the brakes make loud noise


The noise you hear from the brakes? is it a scraping grinding noise? if so your metal to metal on one or more of your wheels and that can cause the ABS to mal-funtion. If the brakes are good then it sounds like the ABS module is failing. I wouldn't remove the fuse because other systems may be relying on that fuse to work. Find the ABS module and dis-connect it. To find out more information on your ABS system go to your local library.

The Trac off light and the Abs light come on and stay on for a while. Then a you can hear a noise now and again. The light will turn off but then it comes on again. This is a 2001 Chevrolet Impala


either a bad front wheel bearing assembly (has speed sensor inside) or the wiring harness to it at the a arm. repair shop can tell u what side the abs records the codes it sets. then u can decide if u wanna fix it urself or not.btw that noise is the abs motor turning on/activating because the abs computer is confused by the fact its getting a bunk signal from one of the speed sensors(almost always in the front)

ABS light on blinking 4x4 high ligh griding noise wheel well


your front hubs are probably going out thats the noise you are hearing and thats why your 4x4 lights probably on and that being said your abs sensors are part of that hub assembly so the sensors are probably full of metal, they are a magnetic sensor just jack the front of your vehicle up and spin the tire by hand and you will find the bad one the drivers side usually goes first, but my as well do both at the same time

My Chevrolet silverado ss abs light came on?


Take the wheel off and check the brake pads, they are probably worn down, and the metal backing on the disc brake pad is rubbing against the rotor.If that is the case, the rotor will need to be replaced, or turned down if it isn't too bad.

I Have a 2004 Saturn vue ,there is a squeely noise


I would suspect the wheel bearing, as these start to fail they tend to make more noise in one direction of load than the other.

Traction light stays on as well as my abs would come on and stays on and clicking noise during braking.


Sounds like you have a problem in the front brakes or a front wheel speed sensor. A common cause for a Traction light is a faulty front ABS wheel speed sensor or harness. When the Anti lock brake computer sees a problem in the ABS syetm, it disables traction control as well.
