Hello. The difficulty with replacing these sensors is having a way to lift the vehicle. That said, this is what you do:
1. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery with a socket wrench and isolate it to prevent accidental contact with the battery. Raise the vehicle and unplug the electrical connector for the wheel speed sensor.

  1. 2. Clean any debris from the contact area between the wheel speed sensor and its housing. Remove the mounting bolt for the wheel speed sensor with a socket wrench. Pull the wheel speed sensor straight up from the rear axle housing.
  2. 3. Install the new wheel speed sensor on the rear axle housing and use a torque wrench to tighten the bolt to 89 inch pounds. Plug in the electrical connector to the wheel speed sensor.
  3. 4. Lower the vehicle and connect the negative battery cable to the battery with a socket wrench.

My 1997 Chevy Blazer ABS light comes on and then shuts off but does it regularly. Also it makes a noise on the front brakes when using them. What could be the problem?

One of the wheel speed sensors is going bad probably. If the brake is shuddering when pressed like when the ABS kicks in then the sensor is bad.

99 chevy blazer the abs light stays on all the time

There are several reasons why the abs light would come on. Mostly a bad tone ring or sensor within one of the front wheel bearings is bad. To truely know what the actual reason for the light you will need to have a local repair shop or your local auto parts store scan the abs system with a scan tool equipped with abs software. An easy way to rule out a bad wheel bearing , is to raise the front wheels and check for movement in the wheel up and down.

Abs light

Turn on ignition switch and system should chk itself. If all is right the light should drop out..You may have to drive it for the sensors to register presence.

First as ABS goes. The abs light will come on for a number of things. The sensor is ajar. The sensor failed or they aren't wired.
secondly the whole ABS unit might be bad. Getting the ABS mo dual is very expensive and to honest you don't need ABS. all ABS does is replace driving skills you should have all ready. on my blazer i have it disconnected because i felt it was more dangerous then old fashioned breaks. Also when your bake pads are shot this could also trip the sensor. As far as the transmission goes there is a sending unit that reads the information and relays it back to the instrument cluster. He could of very well not wired it correctly or at all.
