My driver side read tire is about to come off and my abs light came on

tire wobble may have damaged wheel speed sensor, which is used by the ABS system. Jack up car and remove wheel. Inspect speed sensor for damage. Repair as necessary. Also repair any broken or damaged wheel studs. OK?

Abs comes on then i restart the car and the light

Check the ABS sensor at the front wheel hubs, it may just need to be sprayed down with brake cleaner. Remove the front wheels and inspect the ABS sensors and wire leads, Check the gap between the sensor and the speed ring and Re-gap if necessary. Pay attention to the drivers side first, since that hub was replaced and the sensor may need to be re-gaped to the new wheel hub, or cleaned since the sensor is magnetic and may have pick up some metal filling from replacement of the old hub. Good luck and this is an easy fix, can be done in under 1 hour.

ABS light stays on


If you have a abs light on consistently then you need to check the code and if it says front wheel sensor, it may not be damaged, but just need to be cleaned. To clean the dirty tyres you need the following tools--

Short Extension
Jack Stands
Wheel Lock
Rag or Paper Towels

1) First start by removing the front wheel for either passenger or driver side depending on which one you start with. Make sure to support your car on jack stands and not just the jack.

2) Next turn the steering wheels all the way in, opposite the side you are working on. For example if you are working on the passenger side, turn the wheel all the way towards the drivers side.

3) Locate the ABS wheel sensor which is directly mounted onto the knuckle and then remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the abs sensor directly. Then along the line there’s another two 10mm bolts that need to be removed, just follow the abs sensor line to get at them.

4) Now take your rag or paper towels and start wiping off all the dirt and/or grease.

Follow steps 3 - 1 backwards for re-installation.

If the problem is not resolved then you need to take a serious view. Because the ABS System in the vehicle is computer modulated and if the light is on it means that there is a malfunction somewhere in the system. It could be a sensor that has gone bad or if you just recently had tires changed it could be someone knocked something loose on one of the wheels. Please do not wait further as the indicator lamp on is telling you your ABS system is not functioning properly and in an emergency situation it could cost you immensely. Get it checked out at your local dealer immediately.

ABS Failure??

Concentrate on sensor at that wheel, may have bad connection, or faulty sensor. Clean rust off toothlike notches behind backing plate area, blow it clean & see if that helps.

2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette Trac System and ABS Stop working

I think your abs sensor is dirty and needs to be cleaned.

There are many things that can cause your ABS light to come on. Some are serious, so you should never just ignore the light. But there are times when the light comes on and can be met with a simple solution. For instance, a dirty ABS wheel sensor can cause the system to trigger the ABS light during self evaluation. You'll be shocked when you see how much road gunk can accumulate on this very important sensor.
Even if your ABS light hasn't made an appearance, it's a good idea to clean the sensor. A good time to do it would be during brake pad replacement when you have the wheels off anyway
Begin by loosening your wheel lugs, then jack the front of the car up and rest it securely on jack stands. With the car safe, remove the wheel lugs and take the front wheels off.
With the wheel off, turn the steering wheel all the way in, opposite the side your working on. For example if your working on the passenger side, turn the wheel all the way toward the drivers side.

Locate the ABS wheel sensor. Remove the bolts that attach it to the rest of the suspension. You may also need to remove a few bolts to pull the sensor away from the vehicle for cleaning. Follow the line to see if there are more bolts. Remember not to force it or pull too hard. Then along the line theres another two 10mm bolts, that need to be removed, just follow the abs sensor line to get at them.

With the sensor free, take your rag and wipe the sensor until its clean. I prefer not to use any chemicals on the sensor to avoid potential problems. If you need to, use mild soapy solution and rinse well.
Reinstall the sensor in the same manner it was removed.
