one of the wheel sensors is triggering the light. tenspeed told me about these. Check the connections to the cluster, may be just a stupid plastic connector what's causing all the fuss-

Definitely not the cluster, its your wheel bearing going bad and the gap between the sensor and tooth ring are getting too far apart. Does the pedal occasionally vibrate when coming to a stop also?

Speed sensor is bad on one of the wheels. I had my engine totally rebuilt due to other issues but this was the issue I was having prior to the engine issues fixed my drivers side speed sensor and havemt had the issue since.

My car is doing the exact same thing, ABS light comes on traction light off comes on. I recently had my struts replaced, could this have anything to do with it?

I just had my transmission rebuilt on my 06 5.3. The Abs and traction control was never on prior to that.


My traction control light and abs light kept coming on.The computer kept saying it was wheel bearing so I replaced wheel bearings twice, but to no avail. Finally, I insisted that my mechanic check the wire harness, thankfully that was it... no problems since.. should be about 200 dollars.. good luck
