            They seem pretty pricey for what they are, but this is the best deal I have found. Replaced both front sensors and the ABS (which was kicking on unnecessarily) works fine now.
            Hint: Make sure the mounting surface is clean prior to installation. The clearance between sensor and pickup nodes is critical.

                  Great question Lisa, it depends upon the skill level of the person performing the operation. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                Will a bad wheel/speed sensor trigger my traction control on my 06 Tahoe?

                  A:

                  Signs of a bad wheel speed sensor: Service Engine Light: If the speed sensor has gone out on your vehicle, the check engine light, or service engine light, will come on, indicating there is a problem. Depending on your vehicle, it may trigger other service lights. Speedometer: A primary function of the speed sensor is to tell how fast the vehicle is traveling. A vehicle with a broken or malfunctioning speed sensor will also probably be experiencing a malfunctioning speedometer. The speedometer may "jump," or jerk back and forth, even though the vehicle's speed does not change, and may stop working all together. Cruise Control: Speedometer problems also commonly lead to problems with the cruise control in a number of vehicles. If the vehicle's computer, or brain, cannot tell how fast it is traveling it will be unable to regulate the cruise control. Transmission: A malfunctioning speed sensor may cause problems with a vehicle's automatic transmission, depending on how it is malfunctioning. If the speed sensor is sending incorrect information to the vehicle's computer about how fast the vehicle is traveling, the vehicle may switch gears inappropriately, causing jerking and other assorted issues. The issues will depend on whether the vehicle is adapting for going faster or slower than it actually is. Either way, a bad speed sensor can wear out or damage a transmission if left unrepaired. Stalling: A vehicle with a completely dead speed sensor may stall because the vehicle is not sending the right signals to the computer and does not adjust properly to idle.

                  A:

                  An automotive scan tool with ABS functionality must be used to determine which sensor is not properly communicating with the ABS computer.

              • Q:

                GMC dealer said the sensor is built into the hub and would require complete exchange of hub for 700$ cost. Am I being ripped off or would this unit be effective cure for the problem?

                  No. It could cause an incorrect output to the car's computer, causing an ABS light.
