Hi. Typically the ABS light indicates that one of the ABS sensors has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If you still have the automatic pumping brakes, it must be a sensor. If the brakes no longer auto pump on a rapid braking, then the entire system may be bad. Either way you still have brakes, you may just have to manually pump the brakes. Regarding the noise, chances are it is a bad tire, one where the steel belts have separated. The only way to know exactly what has happened to cause the noise is to get your tahoe up in a rack and check out the tire, the tie rods, etc. J.

Sounds like your wheel bearing wore out. This could affect the ABS, as the ABS sensor is near the bearing and is sensitive to lateral motion.

Ok, there are sensors on your front wheel hubs. This could easily cause the abs light to turn on. The loud noise could easily be your wheel hub going bad. Easiest way to check, jack up the front of the truck, grab tire, shake back and forth and up and down. Same amout of play each way? You're wheel hub is bad.......

    Yes it is the hub bearing. We just replaced ours and sounds fine. If it sounds like you have snow tires on, then that is it. If it sounds like its coming from the right, i would get it double checked. Ours sounded like it was coming from the right, but it was the left front tire.

Our 2007 impala...the traction light and the ABS light stays on all the time..also we are having a roar sound with our tires as if they were snow tires, but they are not.The noise is loud.. any sugges


I would suspect you have a bad wheel hub (bearing) assembly. The bearings will roar/growl when they start to go bad. I've seen the bearings actually disappear from the hubs because it got so bad. Also, the ABS light will come on when the bearings go bad. I would take it to a mechanic before it gets any worse. BTW, GMs are known to have wheel hubs go bad.

I hope I was able to help you out.

In park with engine running everything sounds fine and smooth as can be. all fluid levels are good. when i put it in gear it sounds and feels fine. when i start rolling i hear a roar. it doesn't drive...


You might have the front wheel bearings checked out. First drive it on some curves and bear left and then bear right see which way quiets it down. That really only works if it is in the front, however the rear ones do go bad as well, however it is usually the front ones that go with a roar. Hope this helps

Tires are making a roaring noise while driving


Either the tires have slippe belts in them, mainly old or worn tires. Or more common is one of your wheel bearings is going bad. Could also be an axle shaft. Jack up the front of the vehicle and grab the wheel and see if you can move it up/down or side to side. see if there is excess play to check wheel bearing issues

All the hubs on the car have the abs sensor built into the hub. The abs system has to be re set to read the sensor . The rear hub bearing if noisy should be replaced. There are wiring harnesses that connect to the abs sensor. The harnesses to each of the abs sensor should be replaced.
