Re: Stabilitrack/ABS lights coming on. ***UPDATE***
Okay, I did something right Sunday, two days now and the problem seems to be fixed.
Here is what I did Sunday:
1). Based on another thread I read here, I unplugged the plugs from the body control module under the dash, but some dielectric grease on them, and plugged them back in. This is supposed to be in response to a known problem with the pins developing corrosion. I don't know why the grease would help pins already corroded, but the poster said it worked for him, so I figured it was worth a shot.
2). I pulled the wheel speed sensor from each caliper to take a look and see if I found any obvious damage. On removing them I saw eCh had a little window,for lack of a better term. I wiped each window off, then reinstalled the sensors. Didn't even unplug them for this.
3). Just to find out where they were, I looked for the speed sensor plugs in the engine compartment, they are not real easy to get too. I suppose, while doing this, I may have reseated the plug on one or both front sensors, but I kind of doubt it.
I expect #2 on the list is what took care of the problem. Maybe a little pebble or piece of mud had gotten caught between the sensor and magnetic ring or something, blocking its ability to sense it.
2 days now, and the stabilitrack light is still off and cruise control is working again.
Checking the sensors took probably <10 minutes per tire, including taking off the wheels, BCM project probably only took 10 minutes, finding the plugs took 15-20.
I'll update again if the problem resurfaces again soon, but these are definitely a couple easy things you should try if you suffer the same problems.
