So i had a broken abs sensor that made the abs light come on and waited to long so the message center light for service vehicle soon came on. I fix the the abs sensor, replaced bearing, how do I reset those lights?

My hub has been on the fritz and now bad for probably 24 months now and the SES/SVS light has never come on. Maybe you have a separate problem?

I imagine the lights can generally be reset by disconnecting the battery for a period of time and reconnecting. If nothing else, it's a free thing to try.

The lights should go out when the problem is corrected. I could turn the light on and off in my Intrigue by turning the wheels (one of the pigtails was shorting out on the knuckle due to a shoddy repair by a shop).

Like Iffyg said the light will go out if the problem has been fixed.

Usually the hub trips a ABS / Serv Trac light. If the SES light is on, its something else. Get the car scanned and report the codes back to us. We can help from there.

I got it scanned the right front is giving a open circuit for abs sensor, the one i replaced,............ there are no other codes the gm dealer that scanned it said that the svs light was on because the abs circuit was open to long, what would give it an open circuit? the pins corroded? or bad abs harness? or just another bad hub?

Did you inspect the wiring harness on the side that stays on the car? I'd probably start there, unless you used a cheap hub (anything not SKF or Timken)... those have been known to have issues out of the box.

Its a timken bearing and I did inspect it it looked a little corroded but not really I put a little die-electric grease(spelling?) in it and plugged it in but maybe I dont know what im looking at haha, Ill look into it more on the weekend, got some christmas shopping to do haha. Thank for the help ill update soon.

Dielectric grease is NOT conductive. It only protects the connector from future corrosion and dirt contamination.

Also, out of curiosity, where did you buy your timken hub? I found front ABS hubs for 189+tax each at APC Guelph. Just curious to see if you got a better price elsewhere.

if the pins are corroded, you need to clean off the corrosion. A light sanding should do the trick.

ground wire to the ABS system, too... I had that light come on and off until I went and cleaned all of the grounds on the car... The one that connected to the ABS was rusty all around the area, I took it off, sanded and removed all of the rust that popped up, and reconnected... No more lights for me, and I had that open code also...
