Recently my SVS and ABS lights have come on for my 04 GA. Ive searched a number of posts on here and most have said that it probably is a bad wheel sensor or wheel bearing.

I was wondering if someone could help with a few questions I couldnt find answers to in the search. One, how do I know which sensor or bearing is bad. I went Autozone to use their code reader, but it wont read that code. Second, how do easy is it to change the sensor or bearing once I find the bad one?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

I bought a new bearing and plugged it into each side to find which sensor was bad.

If you do all your work on cars, you can change the bearing. You will need a large socket to remove and install the axel nut. Regular hand tools for the rest of it.

i went to my mechanic and he has a thing that will read anything and everything about the car.

yeah, i changed my own, and it wasnt that hard. i'm just glad we had a good impact to get that huge 34mm nut off. in the how to thread they say its torqued down to 250 lb feet

250 was when using the old style black nut. The new silver nut is around 170.
