Hey looking for help! My 03 Buick rendezvous has the was light on in the dash so I hooked it up to a diagnostic scanner told me the wheel speed sensor was not working so I replaced the bearing now all wheel speed sensor s are working as they should .but the light is still on. There are no other codes with the brakes Idk if that matters. So any ideas?

    Was the code cleared by the scanner after the job was completed?

    Yes there aren't any codes as of now after the wheel speed sensors were replaced / fixed one wire. Please note the the vehicle doesn't have to be started or driven to show awd Disabled. its just on all the time . if the differential check valve was bad wouldn't the scanner pick that up or show?

    These systems can be very tricky and may require deep diagnosis.

    See if you find this DISCUSSION of interest. It's between a certified mechanic and a 2003 Rendezvous owner on this very problem.

    Yes that's helpful. It appears as though my differential awd valve is bad. Its bad news but I got it under control. Thanks
