Default ABS problem

I have a 04 I5 4x4 ext. cab. It has a abs light that come on for a few minute and then goes off and repeat. I plug in my code reader and tell me it's the front right side sensor. First thing I check was the wheel bearing, ball joint, and tie rod and everything is solid. Tire do need replacing. Is it possible the worn out tire is kick a abs code? Could a rusty disc brake be the problem? I check the wire that goes to the sensor and all is good.

Let me know
Thanks

sounds like you need a new wheel hub with new abs speed sensor

The way our hub is designed it almost impossible to take the sensor off without damaging it. You will most likely need a new hub.

My 07 2wd ext cab I4, is flashing ABS fault along with traction control. Haven't scanned for codes yet, but i have less than 34,000 miles on it. Is it possible I have a bad hub/sensor allready?

Also, does anybody know how the traction control detects the rear wheels spinning. As far as I know there are no wheel speed sensors on the rear?

i think there is a sensor at all wheels. i know the speedo works off the rear wheel, so there has to be somthing back there

THERE IS ONLY ABS ON THE FRONT. you will have to jack up the front end and push and pull on the wheel if there is no movement then you can either tap the sensor lightly in so that there is no gap. other wise replace the sensor they are not hard to do. i have replaced both hubs, sensors ,calipers, rotors, and brakes pads. 318km / 05so i needed it.

Thanks for your replies. I'm gonna check for play in the hubs, and also scan for any dtc's. I will do the job myself, done plenty GM front hubs on cars. Just pissed I only have 34,000mi., but over the three year warranty. The 5yr/100,000 will only cover a bad hub, not sensor. Stupid since one needs the other. I was checking rockauto.com but it seemed a little confusing. Does any body know the part number for a hub with sensor. 2wd with street pack Z85 suspention. Thanks again.

Your looking at about $83 bucks from your local autozone or equivalent parts supply folks. They are'nt that difficult to change especially if you have done front brake replacement before.
