Sensor will be part of hub bearing assembly, remove brake caliper, brake rotor will slide off, on back of hub bearing will be three bolt's, remove bolt's, disconnect ABS harness, and hub bearing should come off, some time's will have to used a harmmer to knock it out due to rust.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Quad Cab ABS kicks in when stopping

Took me a while, but found the issue.
When stopping, sometimes, but does get worse as time goes on... the ABS will kick in for no reason and the brakes seem to let up on one side or the other.
OK, now...this is what I read everywhere. Replace the wheel cylinders, replace brake fluid, replace brake lines, replace pads... blah, blah, blah... I read too much to and know too much to realize that the brake fluid is NOT going to let the ABS kick in at under 4mph...
I checked around with some back yard mechanics... Well guess what... The splines in the drive axles that get read from the ABS sensor get clogged with grease causing the wheel sensor to think that the wheel stopped and then releases the ABS for that wheel. Thus letting the steering wheel slightly turn to the left or right depending on which sensor lets go. It your steering wheel slips to the right, the right axle needs cleaning.

OK, with that, this works!!!!!!
Obviously need to be mechanically inclined at least a little.
Take the wheel off on the side that the ABS is letting go.
Douse the ABS sensor with some sort of penatrent that will allow to soak in and let the ABS sensor to be taken out. If it breaks, you'll need to dig it out somehow or you'll end up replacing the wheel hub, I was lucky.
OK, once you take off the wheel and remove the ABS sensor, take a flash light and look in the hole. You'll see that the grease has filled the grooves making it appear to be solid.
Take a small screwdriver, like the one you get from Snap On or Mac and clean out every groove. This will take some time. You may have to do this one, two or three times around, maybe 20 mins worth.
OK, once this is all cleaned, put the sensor back in, don't overtighten, then the wheel.
You should be good to go, or stop in this case!! :)

I was lucky only the Rt front sensor needed cleaning last year... now about a month ago the left one started to do this. SO, I guess as soon as I get sick of that I'll take care of that one too!

Hope this helps anyone!!

Replaced rear brakes for disk breaks on 2006 chevy 1500 lights comes on abs

check to see that the sensor wires that sense axle rotation are connected. Some are near the caliphers abd read the rotor rotation and in my car with rear drum brakes it is in the axle housing next to the axle bearing. Check that the sensor is compatable for the new application

My ABS light stays on and the 4wd light keeps blinking.

The first thing you need to do is to have the abs computer scanned for codes, the abs may be related to the 4wd problem, by scanning the codes this will give you an idea of the problem, for example they scan it and it reads p1542 rt frt sensor out of spec, this would mean theres a problem with the right front speed sensor, when ever the computer sees a problem it stores a code and turns on the light for whatr ever system fails, hope this helps.

When i apply the brakes the abs engages slightly

You have a wheel sensor starting to go bad.You will need a computer to read the sensors as you drive to be able to find the sensor that is getting lazy and then replace that sensor.The sensor is built into the wheel bearing unless it is the rear sensor which is located in the top of the rear end differental.
