Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

I replaced the hub assembly on my 96 Cadillac Deville. No problems with the install. Now the traction control and ABS lights come on and it sounds like the front end does not run smooth. (Traction control type noise?) The electrical connector from the hub assembly is connected properly.

You torqued the axle nut to the proper spec?

The ABS harness from the new wheel bearing is in the correct clock position?

Are you sure one of the pins in the connector isn't bent? Look carefully in the sensor side of the connector. The male pins are very small and easily bend.

Check the harness on the car side of the connector. It is very common for the harness to break or corrode especially near the connector or anywhere along the harness where it routes through the wheel well area.

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

96 deville new hub assembly stops rotating when tightened


are both wheels off of the ground? (shouldn't really make a difference, but you never know). Also make sure the hub assembly is sitting flush in the spindle. You might have to 'tap it in a little to seat it. And check that the abs wires aren't getting caught around the cv axle while rotating.

There is a good possibility that this may not be a transmission related issue but a bearing hub assembly which may be going bad. The abs sensor is contained the with in the wheel bearing.They may be able to put a scan tool on it and let you know what codes are disabling the abs and traction control but quite possibly just a bad wheel bearing.

How do you service traction control system?


If the traction control system light is on, it could be a wheel speed sensor in the hub.

Is there an ABS light on as well?

Abs light on and traction control light and service engine soon light on


One of your wheel speed sensors is not functioning and this is why you are having the abs and trac control light. These are on the back side of your wheel bearing hub assembly and you may have a broken wire or a damaged sensor. Check all four of these visually and with a continuity tester to find the bad one. The check engine light is usually emissions related and I would suggest replacing your O2 sensor.
