i had my abs light come on and i ended up haveing to replace the abs control module it ended up costing around $700. you will have to get the code read to know what really wrong with yours though.

the wife said it came on again. the ABS and traction control lights came on. with service the traction system message. I'm having her run by the parts plce on her way home to have them scan the codes

could be the abs speed sensor which would be a much cheaper fix.

hopefully that's the case. my father in law just shelled out 800 for new front hub bearings. so far not to impressed with this caddy considering it only has 70k miles on it. too many things going wrong

the wife stopped at oreillys and they said they can't hook the scanner up cause the check engine light ain't on. so she is stopping by our mechanic to see what they say. I did however find a web page that shows me how to check the codes myself with the onboard computer. too many steps wow. I remember my 2k neon I just turn the ignition key 3 times and it showed everything. neet part on the caddys system I can clear the codes without having to disconnect the battery

so are mechanic said go to the dealer. I went out ran the codes came up with
c1232 which is wheel speed sensor.
B0429 temperature rear control #3.
my question is on the speed sensor could that be related to when the bearings were replaced a few months back

i could just be that the guy that replaced the speed sensor left it unplugged. thats happened to me. i would check that before doing anything else.

if it wasn't plugged in why would it now start flashing months after the job

the wiring harness on the controll arms that connects to the speed sensors are most likely the problem. This is extremely common on GM cars as a result of the wires bending as the wheels are turned, or when the suspension moves. Dorman and GM both offer replacement harnesses for around $30-50. Try bending the wires when the car is running, as this may make the lights come on if the wires are bad. My 08 impala had the same problem.

or maybe the plug has a loose connection. i would check stuff like that before i start throwing money into the problem.
