  • MAKE SURE THAT YOU TURN THE IGNITION ON BEFORE CHECKING RESISTANCE ONT HE SENSOR CONNECTORS

    In this video i will help you figure out where the problem is coming from. If you have the ABS and Traction OFF lights on your dash you either have a bad hub speed sensor or a bad wire connector to the speed sensor.

    Best way to figure out where the problem is coming from is to scan for ABS codes, if you do not have an ABS scanner auto parts stores such as Auto Zone will scan for those codes for free.

    Once you get the codes you will know which sensors are coming up as bad. If, for an example you have a bad front passenger side speed sensor code, first thing you need to do is jack the car up, take both front wheels off, turn the ignition ON and get the reading from the good side connector that leads from the ABS control module to the speed sensor and then get the reading from the bad side connector. If the readings are the same, that means that your hub/speed sensor is bad, go ahead and replace it and that will solve your issue. If the readings are different, then your wiring is the issue.

    This worked for me, i had bad wiring on the passenger side of the car and a bad hub/speed sensor on the rear driver side. You cannot tell if the wiring is bad just by looking at it, get a multimeter and measure the resistance on the connectors that will tell you all that you need to know.

    ANOTHER THING THAT I COMPLETELY FORGOT TO MENTION IN THE VIDEO IS, IF YOU BY SOME CHANCE GET ALL 4 SPEED SENSORS TO COME UP AS BAD THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE YOU HAVE A BAD ABS MODULE OR A LOOSE CONNECTION AT THE ABS MODULE. THIS IS HOWEVER VERY RARE, BUT IT DOES HAPPEN.

    Kevin Wats says:

    Hey bro can you tell me how to replace the wire where does the wires hook up ?

    i_notold says:

    Buick issued a statement about ABS lights coming on when mechaniclly nothing was wrong with the car. They said that it is possible to have the ABS light come on showing a system fault because of a brake light being out or the break pedal switch being defective.

    I've been trying to figure out an abs light on a 99 Lumina for months. This is the video that finally helped me. Multi meter on the computer side harness showed no voltage. Thank you!

    Richard Bedard says:

    AutoZone does not have the ABS scanner. I went there to have them find the ABS codes. I was shown the approriate scanner-over $200.

    2002 Buick Regal, SVS/ABS light on, OEM Delco hubs less than 2 years old. ABS is also engaging at low speeds. Could wiring be a problem?

    TheHuskyGT says:

    Same problem in my 2013 Impala. I wish I found this video before I spent $400 on both front-end wheel hubs. The lights are back, so the problem has got to be the wires. Those wire harnesses are $30.

    Daniel Davis says:

    Autozone does not have a scanner for ABS codes. at least that is what they told me on the phone.

    Jeffrey Gagnon says:

    bumping an old video, sorry. Do you have a vid of the wire repair? i.e From where you cut the wire/connected it to that abs / EBCM module

    Terry Morris says:

    how u doing sir my is terry I have a 2007 Chevy monte carlo when I put it on a diagnostic test you keep saying a ignition switch control the car crank right up but when I push the gas it take awhile for to take off what does that mean

    Blake Newton says:

    Thanks. The previous "tech" basically soldered the wires together on the hub as the car (01 Chev Impala) at one time was a write-off. Hope that the ABS cables to the hub cables are OK. Let this be a lesson, never buy a write off thinking "It will only be a few parts. When we received the "rebuilt" car as a warehouse storage lien, so much was baling wired together. Going through the crappy, sub standard work is frustrating. The ABS would come on "pulsing" through corners. Now I know why.
