ok last year about this time I had the wheel bearing hub assembly replaced in my car. I was gettin horrible wheel humming when I started to come to a stop and the abs trac off light would come on all the time. I'm now getting the same dummy lights on in my car as I did then and having horrible wheel noise when I drive, stop etc. So I conclude from that that I have the same problem as last year just on the opposite side. I'm taking my car to the shop on saturday, my question is this... If the warning lights I get (ABS, trac off) almost every time I get in my car are not on my car doesn't want to stop its like my brakes cant grip its kind of like a grinding slip, then all the sudden the lights come on and they grip like hell and my car stops. (Scary stuff) Usually the first time I pull up to a stop it does this then the rest of the time I'm driving the car is fine (once the warning lights kick on). Is there a connection between the wheel bearing/hub assembly that would cause my car to do this or is this a totally different problem to add to my bill???
