  5. Remove the WSS cable clip from the upper control arm.
  6. Remove the WSS cable clip from the frame.
  7. Remove the WSS cable electrical connector.
  8. Remove the WSS mounting bolt.
    CAUTION
    Carefully remove the sensor by pulling it
    straight out of the bore. DO NOT use a screwdriver, or other device to pry the
    sensor out of the bore. Prying will cause the sensor body to break off in the
    bore.

  9. Remove the WSS from the hub/bearing assembly.

To Install:


  1. Seal the WSS bore to prevent dirt or debris from falling into the hub.
  2. Clean the mounting surface on the hub to remove any rust or corrosion.
  3. Apply wheel bearing lubricant, GM P/N 01051344 or equivalent to the hub
    surface and the sensor O-ring to ease sensor installation.
  4. Install the WSS into the hub/bearing assembly.
  5. WSS sensor must be seated flat against the hub.
  6. Install the WSS mounting bolt.

    • Tighten to 13 ft lbs (18 Nm).

  7. Install the WSS cable mounting clips.
  8. Connect the WSS cable electrical connector.
  9. Install the brake rotor.
  10. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  11. Perform a low speed test for proper operation:

    • Start the engine and allow it to idle.
    • Verify the ABS indicator or the traction assist indicator remains
      illuminated.
    • If the ABS indicator or the traction assist indicator remains illuminated,
      DO NOT proceed to drive the vehicle until it is diagnosed and repaired. Check
      the wheel speed sensor electrical connector to ensure it is not damaged and is
      installed properly. If the lamp remains illuminated, diagnostics are required.
    • Select a smooth, dry, clean, and level road or large lot that is as free of
      traffic and obstacles as possible.
    • Drive the vehicle and maintain a speed of at least 16 km/h (10 mph) for at
      least 5 seconds.
    • Stop the vehicle and check to see if the ABS indicator or the traction
      assist indicator is illuminated.
    • If an indicator is illuminated, diagnostics are required.

Rear
The powertrain control module (PCM) uses the transmission mounted vehicle
speed sensor (VSS) for rear wheel speed input signals. The PCM then sends this
information to the EBCM to use for ABS control.

Abs problem on 2001 4 wheel drive 1/2 ton chevrolet silverado pickup


I have this same problem with my 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. I found a recall on a website that said there were 1,353,718 other trucks with this same problem (no, that's not a typo). Do not ask the people at Chevy to uphold to this recall because I was turned down when I informed them about the problem. Anyway, the explanation for the problem is the wheel speed sensor mounting surface has rust and corrosion (especially in areas who have roads that get salted a lot) on it that moves the actual wheel speed sensor away, creating the thought of an icy condition. If you or a mechanic has the area cleaned, the sensor will go back to its original position, thus fixing the problem.
