The StabiliTrack warning light and the StabiliTrack stay on


When I had the same thing happen on my 2010 Equinox- One of the ABS sensors had a spot on the wiring that had rubbed thru and one of the wires was shorting. The sensor needed replacing- Check all your ABS sensors and wiring. The Stabilitrack monitors the wheel speed through the ABS sensors- therefore if they are not working properly then it will not work properly. (My ABS light was NOT on in this issue)

2002 Altima, jerking when driving, ABS kick in, ABS. Tracking Control and Slip...


My 2002 Altima Sometime the ABS kick in even though in a nice sunny dry road condition, sometime jerking when driving (doesn't matter high or low speed), sometime ABS. Tracking Control and Slip lights all on at the same time.

I did a lots of research over the internet, not much firm solution I can find. A lot of tech suggest the ABS sensor, MAF sensor, Spark plugs and/ or wires, Fuel injectors, Cad converter, etc. but no one know what is the exact problem is because it only happened intermittently.

But if I unplugged one of the ABS sensor, the ABS system will disable, the ABS. Tracking Control and Slip lights will all turn on, but the car have no more jerking and ABS kick in problem. So it will not be the MAF sensor, Spark plugs and/ or wires, Fuel injectors, Cad converter, etc.

To diagnostics and replaced a ABS sensor are very expensive, especially everyone said, when removed the sensor, 99% of the time the blot will break, it need a lots of time to get the remaining bolt back out, that is one of the reason which causing the repair cost so expensive, take up to $300 to 400 to change one sensor.

I am going to show you how to replace both sensor in a very cheap way.

Most of the forum I found and the majority possible problem cause are the rear ABS sensors. Not quite sure left or right, so I went to the Pick and Pull yard to bought a used pair of rear ABS sensors, it cost me CND$30.00, $15.00 each. Way cheaper than you take it out to just get diagnostic.

Follow the sensor wire and plug to replaced both sensors. My car run perfect now, no more jerking, no more ABS kick in by no reason, no more warning light turn on anymore.

Now comes to the biggest problem, when I removed the old sensor, I knew the bolt was going to broke. How can I re-tighten it back? No problem, just let it broke.

This is the way how I fix it: cut a piece of solid electrical wire, about 7 inch long, peel off the wire skin, I only need the copper wire (because copper wire is rust and heat proof).
Unscrew both bigger wheel bearing screws beside the sensor.
Bend the copper wire wrap around the screws, the middle of the wire need to put it through to hold down the back side of the sensor, when tighten the screws back, both screws will tighten the wire and hold down the sensor.

It is very hard to explain , I am going to attach some pictures to show everyone. Basically, with the tax I use around $32.00 to fix the problem.

Sorry about the last picture is quite fuzzy, it is hard to let my camera to get it focus properly, but you should be able to see it.

Because I already did mine, so I just use another screws to show everyone in the pictures how to do it. Also sorry for my English, hope every can understand what I mean.

Cut a wire around 7 inch long.

Peel off the wire skin, only need a solid copper wire

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-3_0.jpg
Bend it and wrap around the screw (in clockwise direction because it will be tighten in the same direction), cut the excessive length of wire if need

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-6_0.jpg
After bend will be in S shape.

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-10.jpg
Will mount it back to the car like that.

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-15.jpg
Finished, when tighten both screws, it will hold the sensor down tight.

I need to replace the abs speed sensor on a 1999 chevy malibu 3.1 engine on the drivers side after the abs wire leaves the the hub bearing assembly wheres does it go and how do i replace it from the...


The abs sensor is part of the bearing. the wire goes to the abs module. the speed sensor is mounted on the backside of the transmission, passenger side. The speed sensor ha s one bolt that holds it in. The abs sensor, you will have to remove the strut bolts , the tierod arm, the caliper and the bracket that holds it, remove the rotor, remove the big nut that holds the cv axle the the hub. Push the cv axle out, and there are 3 bolts to remove to get the bearing out. once you get the bolts out you can knock the bearing out with a hammer. Look where the wire is, as it needs to go back in the same location. Also follow the wire up and you will find a disconnect plug attacvhed to the fender well.

My engine and abs lights are on. I replaced the rear ABS sensor, then replaced both front speed sensors!!! Now have codes C-1145 and C-1175 and P-1000!!


C1145 is a Right Front wheel speed sensor fault
C1175 is a Left rear wheel speed sensor fault.
P1000 System OBD check not complete since last memorie clear which mostlikely means that the car has not completed the drive cycle to set all monitors for the engine emissions. ( it may just need to be driven a more.
As for the wheel speed sensors if you have replaced them the ABS codes need to be cleared. the engine code reader and clearing tool will not do it. A scanner with ABS capabilities is needed. On some cars if you disconnect the battery and wait 3 mins then re connect the battery, that will clear all codes. then the car needs to be driven to set all monitors for engine emissions.
If you have already cleared the codes. and you have repete same codes for the ABS, you would need to look the wireing over for possible wire rubs that are causing the faults. or the ABS computer itself is at fault.

My ABS engages when I brake and also when in brake and turn. Any suggestions?


You have a faulty or dirty ABS sensor, you can try to clean the ABS sensor with brake parts cleaner and inspect the wire leads. The ABS sensor are common to get dirt and the wire leads my be damaged due to corrosion or a break in the wire. The ABS sensor is located on the back side of the front wheel hub and the wires leads can be seen along the upper A-arms. Start with that and replace the sensor of all connections are good. Most auto parts store will have the ABS sensor on there shelf and can give you the step by step instructions like Auto Zone.

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.

Diagram of abs sensor


Sorry i don't have one but i can tell you that there are sensors in all the wheels and they work there way to the ABS modulator. If you are having ABS problem such as the light is on, you still have brakes but no abs. Check the lead wire to the abs sensor at the wheel where the sensor Reade's the speed ring at the hub. Most of the time the sensor get's dirty and needs just a good cleaning with a spray of Brake parts cleaner and if that does not work the sensor it self may need to be re gaped to the speed ring and of course check the wires for corrosion or any kind of damages. The last problem may be a bad ABS Modulator and will need to be replaced and that needs to be checked by a scanner. Good luck and hope this helps, if you have any questions. be glad to answer any.

ABS LIGHT ON / BAD WHEEL SPEED SENSOR / HOW TO REPLACE


You can do it yourself. One bolt. Check the plug and wires before you replace the sensor. A stick or whatever can break a wire and the sensor reads bad, but really it just needs a wire. Worth a quick look before you spend the $ on a new part.
