Model Years Affected: 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

Average Mileage: 110,744 mi (25,000 mi - 202,500 mi)


The anti-lock brake system (ABS) and/or traction control light may illuminate. This can be caused by corrosion in the (ABS) wire harness connector at the right front wheel speed sensor due to water intrusion.  Corroded connectors should be cleaned or replaced as necessary to correct this concern.

    I've had it into the dealership 5 times and still not fixed. GM won't back there product and is still making me try to have the dealership service it. I don't seem to have much faith that they will fix my issue.
