There are four sensors one at each wheel. the sensors are part of the hub bearings so just replacing them one at a time will get expensive. you can get them from parts stores also. How do you know one is bad? I assume your abs light is coming on if you have scanned it will tell you the code and we can narrow down to which one it is.

The abs light on my 2000 buick lesabre will noy shut off we have changed brake rotors and pads what could the promblem be

The ABS system has nothing to do with replacing the pads and rotors, the abs is anti braking system the system is designed to keep the wheels from locking up when brakes are applied hard, . you will first need to have the abs computer scanned for codes, the computer will pick up a problem in the system and turn off the system and then turn the abs light on and last it stores a code in the computer, the code will tell you what part of the system has failed. the codes or code are very helpful in pinpointing the problem. the abs system contains speed sensors on all four wheel and a anti braking module and computer, the most common reason for a abs code is a bad wheel speed sensor. this is the most common problem seen, the code for example may read something like this poXXXXX right front speed sensors.again start by getting the codes,good day.

I need the code to a 2000 yukon abs brake light to turn off after changing the brakes

If your ABS light is on, changing the brake (pads) won't fix the light.
There are several reasons for the ABS light to go on, and probably the most common is the connection to one of the four wheel speed sensors, or bad sensors. On most GMs, the sensor and wheel bearing are one assembly.
First, you need to get the error code read via the OBD2 plug. The dealer can do it of course. And many parts stores, such as AutoZone will scan for codes for free.
The code will give you a clue to the problem. Until the problem is fixed, the light can be reset, but it will turn back on almost right away.

The abs light is always on while driving and the right tyres vibrate on speed

There is a good chance that the right wheel hub has gone bad and needs to be replaced. The ABS sensor is apart of the wheel hub, there is a speed ring on the wheel hub for the ABS sensor to read which will activate the ABS when wheel lock up is detected. When the wheel hub is damaged or worn, the speed ring is no longer lined up with the sensor and will need to be replaced. A bad wheel hub can also cause the wheel to come off if the bearing inside fail and seize causing it to explode.

Good luck and have your wheel hub replaced soon as possible and try not to drive it on night way speeds till your repalce the wheel hub. Thank you for using Fixya.

Abs lights on plus brake warning light keeps flashing

It is very possible that the abs pump is faulty. As a mechanic myself, I recommend taking it to a dealer.

ABS, brake, trac control, service engine soon light came.

I'm sorry to say that you will need to see a dealer or repair shop so they scan your ABS for trouble codes first and then find your problem.

ABS Light is still on, even after I replaced the sensor

it can store one code or all codes at a time.disconnect the battery for 5 min.this will clear the memory.after reconnecting the battery if the abs light comes back on when driving then there is another problem.most times it is either the sensor or the wiring.
