I hit a pretty gnarly bump the other day (read neglected to crawl over a construcion dip over train tracks) and now my ABS light as well as my traction control lights are on. I am just wondering if my bearing hub is shot or if my abs sensor has gone. I had the car in the air this afternoon and all sensor plugs and wiring harnesses appear intact so I am looking for some helpful advice. I am getting a minor hum from the front end but not quite as bad as my Malibu was when it's bearings went out. Any input would be greatly appreciated

Unless you can read the GM ABS codes yourself you'll need to take it in & have them read.

We had her hooked up to a code reader and it was saying nothing was wrong. It's possible that the cheap universal my buddy has just wasn't picking it up though. I've ordered a set of moog hubs to replace both fronts so see if that's the problem

GM ABS codes are not read by most scan tools. Actually there are only a few consumer scan tools that will. I use ScanXL with the enhanced GM package on a laptop. Around $220, IIRC, but it has paid for itself many times over. Without getting the codes all you can do is throw parts at it.
