The AWD Disable and Anti Lock lights can result from a bad wheel bearing as well as a bad speed sensor. They'll also come on if you have the spare tire on. Not sure if the acceleration problem is linked to the warning lights. Most car part stores have scanners they can check out the problem.

    I have the exact same problem, which makes me believe the lack of acceleration is linked. I just replaced all four wheel bearings a few months ago. I would love to hear how you fixed the problem???

    Most common repair to solve the problem is replace flow valve on the rear differential and also replaced 4 pints of VersaTrak at the same time. (I'm a retired GM engineer.)

How do i get info on any recalls on my 2004 pont aztec & how do i get in contact with somebody about anti-lock & awd problems


Hi! Matt, Most likely if the anti-lock brake light and the awd disable light come on at the same time a wheel bearing / wheel speed sensor assembly is faulty.Listen for a humming noise when driving and try to determine where it is coming from(left/right/front/ back) or any looseness/play in any wheel. That's the possible bearing/wheel speed sensor causing the problem. Or have the abs system scanned to determine which wheel sensor is reading incorrectly.If the awd disable light is off then the awd system should be funtioning.

Awd disable light and anti lock light on


It could be a wheel bearing as the speed sensor for the abs is located in the bearing

2004 AWD Aztek - AWD Disable light on.


I had this happen to my car and paid entirely too much to the dealer to get it fixed. For me, it was the harness that you think it is, and it affected the battery- I needed to replace it- and also the computer. I'm not sure if mine was frayed, but I've heard that this harness has been known to become frayed and shorts out because of that, which is what I imagine causes the failure, and the shorting out is what destroyed my battery and fried my computer.

My anti lock light , awd disable


Hello! Did you make sure that the plug is fully seated and the sensor harness wires aren't damaged? Also - if the light came on and that is what prompted the change - you'll need to get the trouble code reset. Any major auto parts dealer can do this for you - free of charge.


Thanks for using FixYa!

Service vehicle soon


all these lights are probably associated with the abs.. have the abs scanned at an autozone or another shop and probably will determine a front hub assembly (abs sensor ) is bad.

2002 Pontiac Aztek - AWD disable light and Anti Lock Light


AWD disabled from a sensor unit in rear differential that senses high temp. This thing is over $300. Whine is from fluid. Need to change fluid. This versatrack fluid is about $40 per bottle and you need 3 bottles. Thumping noise is from loose rear knuckle bushings. These are part of the entire rear knuckle assy. and you must replace complete knuckle.

Anti-lock n AWD


Call the dealership. I seem to remember that Pontiac had a recall for this problem just recently where the antilock brake system would lock op and the system caused people to get into accidents. This is a manufacture defect
