Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek
You can try to adjust the brake switch. The brake pedal arm activates the brake switch, so, follow the brake pedal arm up to find the brake switch. Hope you can read it. If you try to adjust, make sure everything works properly after the adjustment.

I had the same problem. I took off the tires and look at the wires, and both of the wires to the hub were broke. 10 min and some tape and problem was fixed.

hello i have a similar problem with my 2002 aztek the ABS light comes on only after my ABS system kick on when it is not suppose to (like normal braking conditions) i took it to be looked at at my local shop who also said it was a front hub having a bad wheel speed censor less than a week after having the work done the problem returned i took it back and they ran diagnostics on it for somewhere around 5 hr and could find nothing so they replaces the hub again.... no shocker here the problem isnt fixed still most recent time i had it in the tech said the problem is the cars computer is "loosing the wheel" he showed me where the main wiring harness runs right next to the oil pan along the bottom of the engine. the wires that go to the ABS control for that side are very swollen and the wires inside are loosing contact. they told me that i would have to replace the harness or live with the problem. after doing research the harness is no longer made and cost around $900 just for the part then u have to pay for the labor of someone putting it in
Hope this sheds some light on your problem

Testimonial: "Thanx for the feedback. I was told that it might be an electrical short somewhere within the wiring harrness however I questioned that if that was the problem, would it not occur right away intead of weeks after the hub replacement. I finally took it to my own mechanic and her stated that her did find the connection clip between the hub and the wiring harress had a loose prong so he tighted it. So far so good and I haven't experiend the problem since, however I am waiting for wet weather since the problem seemed to occur during during or right after a rain. Again thank for your help. "
before you spend anymore have it hooked up to a real time engine analyser like a bdm pro, or a snapon scanner, take it for a drive and snapshoot scanner when the problem arises, could be a sensor like tps or an actuator, but will not register a code, just a flag
