Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero
I had the hub assembly changed for the fourth time in 2 1/2 years and it causing the same problems again and need it replaced again three weeks after having it fixed. What happens is: the low trac, trac off,anti lock lights come on dings three times then trac off low trac lights go off and the anti lock brake light stays on. Could there be some other under lying problem that may be causing this?
It sounds more like it's the wheel speed sensor that is part of the hub/bearing assembly. Since you have had the hub replaced many times I would look for the electrical connectors for the wheel speed sensor as the problem. An easy no cost fix.
BTW...GM has issued a service bulletin for the hub/bearing kit that states NOT to use the old style nut that comes in some kits as it will cause premature bearing failure due to it's design and the high torque requirements. The correct shaft spindle nut part number to use is p/n 10289657 and is torqued to 178 nm. The GM bulletin number is 03-04-18-001.

I found on some of the GM hubs it actually wasn;t the hub at all but a broken wire in the spped sensor harness about 8" back into the harness fixed the wire problem fixed.
