Check your brake fluid level. Normal wear from the brake pads can cause it to go low, and this will cause both of these lights to go on.

Front passenger brake is pulsing and there is no abs light on in my 1997 pontiac grand prix.I believe it might be abs sensor but don't know where to find it in wheel assembly.


A front brake pulsing with no ABS light is a rotor that is no longer true i.e warped. Pull off the tire and rotate the rotor. Hold a straight edge (ruler) across the outside of the rotor as your rotating the rotor. You will note that it changes distance on the straight edge / ruler as it rotates. (in out wobble) A good way to test for an out of true rotor is to drive at about 45 miles and hour and really stand on the brakes (do not lock them up) If the steering wheel and or brake pedal pulsate... you most likely have a rotor problem. If your rotor has never been "turned" it is probably time to do so.

The ABS sensor is behind the rotor on the lower control arm pointed outward toward the rotor with a flat button face. You can not see the button face with the rotor installed. If the sensor is bad you will have an ABS light. I think your troubleshooting the wrong problem. i.e rotor vs your current focus of the ABS sensor.

I would like some feed back on the running dynamic on the road brake test.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I replaced the hub bearing assembly on drivers side twice and the light stayed on and the brakes worked fine. It was the wires (visible just above the tire on the frame) that rubbed against the frame that had shorted out. It was simply repaired and clip-stripped up out of the way. The light has been off every since then.

Sensor will be part of hub bearing assembly, remove brake caliper, brake rotor will slide off, on back of hub bearing will be three bolt's, remove bolt's, disconnect ABS harness, and hub bearing should come off, some time's will have to used a harmmer to knock it out due to rust.

How do I change front hub and bearing assembly on 2004 Explorer


Front hub bearing, remove tire, remove caliper and caliper holding bracket, you do not have to remove brake caliper from brake hose, just set it aside, if 4X4 remove front axle nut that goes through center of rotor, also remove brake rotor, disconnect elec, A.B.S connector, remove three bolts on back side of hub bearing, remove hub bearing, some times you will need to knock hub bearing out with a hammer.Reverse to install new hub bearing.

F350 4x4 extend cab power stroke 107000 miles abs light on i replaced the front hubs wore out and new brakes but abs still on tks jerry


You can try to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and see if the ABS light clears. If not Autozone or Oreillys may have another scanner to fit the ABS diagnostic socket, a free test.

When you did the rear brakes, the emergency brakes inside the rear rotors can sometimes crumble. Need to clean sensors because dirt and brake debris will keep sensors from counting wheel revolutions.

You could also have a ABS diverter valve stuck and not centered. Sometimes its necessary to rebleed to center the part and clear the light.

ABS light comes on and stays on after about 5 minutes of driving


Sounds like an abs sensor or a pick up ring. The sensor is normally bolted to the hub assembly and the pick up ring is on the end of the drine shaft on the front or the back of the rear bearing hub on the rear. Bet you the garage who did your brakes knocked a sensor with a hammer and damaged the wire to one of the sensors.
