    I read on a different post that the wiring harness to the sensor is actually too short and thats why it breaks. I also read that buick made longer wiring for this and I wanted to ask you if you know if this is true and if there is a part number for this longer wiring harness that you know about. I am having the same issue with my 2004 buick rendezvous but the wirirng is broke right at the sensor
  • I am also having a problem with the ABS on my 2003 CX. I replaced on hub in Oct. 2012 and that seem to help for a while and now the problem is back. I am the original owner and only have 102000 miles. Have been thinking about getting a new Buick enclave or encore but have a little concerns. How easy is it to replace wiring harness? Is this something I could try to see if it helps with problem or should I pay someone to do it?
  • I was having the same problem with my 03 Park Ave. While replacing my brake pads I decided to check the connections and wiring to the sensors. What I found was that the righr sensor wire had come loose from the bracket and was laying on the transaxle. the transaxle had worn the insulation off the wire and caused it to to ground out. I put the wire back in the bracket and took a 100 mile drive and the lights never came on. They would usually come on as soon as I started backing out of the driveway. I would make sure that the wires are not laying on the transaxles before I took it in for service.
  • Im having the exact same issues, i have a 2003 cx and everytime i push my brakes it lights up traction active then all the lights come on including anti-lock, abs, i have to stop the car cut it off then turn it back on for it to clear off... this is the first buick i owned an i will not buy another one!! dont get me wrong i love my car but this is such a headache an i still make payments on it...but no warranty PLEASE GM DO SOMETHING about THIS!!

    I have the same problem with the Service Traction system and ABS and Track off instrument warning messages. I also lost the light on the odometer PRNDL instrument panel a couple week earlier; likely unrelated. Anyone have any new ideas for 2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD? It has 248,000 miles on it and runs very well. Oh one other thing is a squeaking noise at low speed from the right front when applying the brake. This noise has been going on for several months and I am taking it in today for a complete brake job. Thanks

    Mine is a 2003 Rendezvous. The light comes on right after starting the car. The trans fluid is full. There is a wire to a device on the center rear transaxle housing that has been taped prior to my ownership. Could this be my culprit ? If so, how is that sensor repaired?
  • I am having the same problem with my 2004 Buick Rendezvous - just started recently. ABS light comes on, Service Traction System comes on,and Traction light comes on. I can feel a pulsation in the brakes, and get the grinding noise. This is intermittent - sometimes I get the full monte, sometimes just one light and a pulsing, sometimes also the grinding noise. One trip I can get everything, the very next trip NOTHING. My wife thinks the car is failing. I spent $100 to have someone hook it up to sensors, says it is wheel bearing (really the sensor on the wheel bearings) and want $700. I am wondering why Buick doesnt step up and fix this if it is this much of a problem.

    Considering a new vehicle - I like my Rendezvous but if I am just heading into continual repair bills its not worth it. Has anyone had this problem actually fixed and not reoccur?
