Question about Pontiac Grand Am

3 Answers

I have a 2003 Grand am SE1. I recently replaced

I have a 2003 Grand am SE1. I recently replaced both wheel bearings due to ABS sensors not working.
I now have a roaring noise coming from the front end and is very noticable going around corners.

Since the noise was not there prior top replacing the wheel bearings, I took it back to the shop that did the work and they are telling me it is not the bearings and that it is just road noise. Any thoughts?

A bad bearing is usually detected by jacking up the wheel, and see if it rocks up and down. Any play is usually a bearing.

Just because the bearings are new doesn't mean they can't be bad. I think you got a bad one.

Bad new bearing I would imagine. It is probably Mexican made and inferior to US parts. Factory parts are the best to buy and of course expensive

the abs sensor or the wires to it need to be checked. There is one on each wheel, so look at all four .

Can you show pictures of a ABS wheel sensor?


THE ABS WHEEL SPEED SENSORS ARE PART OF THE WHEEL BEARING ASSEMBLIES.THEY ARE A 2 WIRE HALL EFFECT SENSOR. DISCONNECT THEY HARNESS AND USE A DVOM (DIGITAL VOLT OHM METER) SET ON AC VOLTAGE AND SPIN THE WHEEL WHILE CONNECTED TO THE SENSOR IN THE WHEEL BEARING. IF YOU DONT GET A READING REPLACE WHEEL BEARING. IF YOU DO ITS A WIRING ISSUE BETWEEN SENSOR AND ABS MODULE.

2003 grand am, abs, trac and service light come on. vibrates going down road approximatly going 55-60 mph, but not on braking.


sounds like you may have a bad wheel bearing. The first thing to do is find out what code is in the abs computer. You will need a higher end scan tool to do this. Once you know what sensor is causing the light to come on you can focus on that wheel.

I suspect the bearing is probably bad enough that you could spin each wheel by hand and hear it growl. It also may be sloppy if you push/pull each wheel at the 12 and 6 o'clock position.

ABS enguaging on its own. Replaced both front wheel bearings. What would cause this? Had a recent MVI done and the Mechanic said the front Right wheel bearing need to replaced. He put a new on on and...


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 &
put meter on wires and spin the wheels

Do all four & compare

Where is the ABS sensor on a 2001 chevy silverado 4x4 truck/


this sensor is is built into the hub bearing, the bearing must be replaced to replace the abs sensor, 99% of sensor fault is due to worn bearing. the sensor is on the hub follow the abs wire to sensor from wheel area, some model sensor is bolted into bearing and can be replaced with bearing, make sure there is no play in wheel or new sensor will go bad, heres a picture of the complete hub and also of just the sensor. note there are four sensors one on each wheel, a scan tool will tell you which one is bad.good day.johnjohn2_116.jpgjohnjohn2_117.jpg

I have a 2003 Vue...and the ABS light will not turn off...is it safe to drive until I can get it fixed?


If ABS light is on,you still have base brakes,just like an older vehicle with no ABS.Not a problem,as a matter of fact I always disable the ABS on my vehicles because I don't like it.

I have a 2003 Passat 1.8L turbo sedan. 2 months


Can't be 100% sure but if you didn't have this problem before doing the work on the wheel bearing I can only think 1 of two things. When they removed your whhel bearing the sensor ring for the abs got damaged or the abs sensor is damaged or not pressed into place in the knuckle. The front sensors are not screwed on, they just have a little sleeve and at time with the vibrations of doing a wheel bearing they get loose. You most probally won't have an abs fault due to these problems.

Non-ABS Wheel bearing failure


leave it. So that it will not affect the CPU (computer) progamming. If the bearings can be installed without removing or having to cut off the ABS plug. Then it is better off left alone.
