    2002 Rendezvous, 2wd, my anti-lock brakes sometimes come on when braking at slow speeds, and sometimes when driving I can feel the same pulsing under my feet. Two weeks ago the ABS, Traction Control and Service Need light kept coming on. I took car in and had FR wheel bearing replaced (RL done 2 years ago). Problem lights are off but same problem exists. Getting expensive. Any suggestions as to what the real problem is?

    I have had the same problem with the awd light coming on all tyhe time. I have replaced the bearings several times. It gets expensive! Why can't GM do something to fix the problem? Which it seems is there problem.

    My 2002 rendezvous engages the antilock brake system at low speeds and when the brake pedal is pressed lightly. The problem is intermitant and the local dealer has no idea what the problem is. Clearly other owners have been having the same problem.

Just took my 2003 Rendezvous for same problem. The Buick dealership told me it was the front wheel hubs and the bearings are bad. The bearings are pressed in so the complete hub has to be replaced. Buick said they'd do it for $638.00. No thanks!!! (bad bearings cause the ABS and traction to kick on, the system thinks it's slipping)

How do i get info on any recalls on my 2004 pont aztec & how do i get in contact with somebody about anti-lock & awd problems


Hi! Matt, Most likely if the anti-lock brake light and the awd disable light come on at the same time a wheel bearing / wheel speed sensor assembly is faulty.Listen for a humming noise when driving and try to determine where it is coming from(left/right/front/ back) or any looseness/play in any wheel. That's the possible bearing/wheel speed sensor causing the problem. Or have the abs system scanned to determine which wheel sensor is reading incorrectly.If the awd disable light is off then the awd system should be funtioning.

The anti-lock light is on and it is causing the awd to disable what should I do?


If the ABS is causing the AWD to come on. Scan it and find out which wheel sensor/bearing is bad, replace it. This could happen. Most AWD lights are because the sensor/actuator in the rear axle assembly is bad. A high dollar part.

Awd disable light and anti lock light on


It could be a wheel bearing as the speed sensor for the abs is located in the bearing

AWD Disable light came on as well as Anti-lock brake light


the lights going on might also be a warning light for low brakes. if less than 25% remaining the other possibility is sensor issues with anti lock and awd

Anti-lock n AWD


Call the dealership. I seem to remember that Pontiac had a recall for this problem just recently where the antilock brake system would lock op and the system caused people to get into accidents. This is a manufacture defect

Anti lock brakes


2006 Saturn VUE AWD, same issue - only it was very intermittant and happened at very slow braking (like rolling to a stop sign) when it kicked in. Turned out it too was the wheel speed sensor. Although I had to take it to the dealership 2x, the first time they checked engine codes with no avail, and a visual inspection didn't show anything either. It was only when I happened to take it there on a day that it was happening frequently. They actually had to hook up the diagnostic computer, drive around, and get readings from the speed sensor to confirm it was shot.

Anti-lock brakes and 4wd lights are on


This is likely a wheel sensor problem, which when it fails, the car goes into a limp mode. Allowing you to drive it safely until you can get it repaired.
