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

Good indication of something wrong from that side most likely a wheel bearing, the abs sensor is located at the bearing hub,it must have play causing improper reading for sensor,i recommend you replace the complete wheel bearing hub which includes the sensor .once your done go to auto zone or advance they can rest the light for free.

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.

My volvo v70 2002 is showing the warning 'abs/anti-skid service reqd', also the driver side front wheel makes a screeving sound not unlike worn doiwn pads on discs when making a right or left


Felix any noise coming from the front wheel while turning leaves me thinking front constant velocity joint if the car is front wheel drive. With the abs light on I would take down the front driver side wheel and check the brakes for wear along with the front wheel bearing assembly for play or loosness, Check for the sensors to make sure they havent came off and are rubbing your rotors as you make your turn. It can be a number of things. Usually when its the front constant velocity joint it makes a popping noise as if something is binding. As for the front wheel bearing assembly it could make noises usually after the car has been ran down the road and heated up the bearing then it will sing to you. But as you mentioned about the noise only during turning I would lean towards constant velocity joint or sensor hanging and rubbing the rotor, Its only one way to find out. Hope this helps.

Corolla altis 1.8E ...bought in 2009 abs light on once start the engine for a second.... front driver tyre sound loud from normal if driving below 100 km/h..


If the ABS light goes out, and stays off you do not have an ABS issue-it is doing a self-check for that second. As for the noisy tire, you could try moving it to a different location to see if the sound moves-if so, you need a tire, if not, check your wheel bearings at that wheel.

"ABS" indecator light is on


Most common problems are front wheel bearings they are integral to the wheel speed sensors for ABS system. I'd get it scanned to see which side is faulty.

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.

Grinding noise in front end and abs light came on


check wheel bearing play. if the play is excessive it will cause the abs sensor to come away from tone ring loosing signal, illuminating abs light.

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.

It is the wheel speed sensor jumper harness more than likely on the driver side. They replaced the orginal with a newer better one but never issued a recall.
