#3647 of 3676 SHIMS FOR WHEEL SPEED SENSOR ABS
Aug 22, 2011 (9:41 am)
1999 Chevy Blazer 2 Door 4wd
Trying to find a part number for the metal shims that go between the front wheel speed sensor for the abs and wheel hub. The shims adjust the high of the sensor so it does not interfer with the reluctor ring inside the hub.
The part looks just like a soda pull tab. It is also one of the biggest causes of the abs activating a low speeds when they rust changing the gap on each tire.
Called 4 chevy dealers and had no idea. Was not in the diagram. Rather not have to buy a new hub, it is only two years old with 7,000 miles on it. The sensors themselves do not come with them.
Any ideas on a substitute would be appreciated, may just try to cut some out of a sheet of metal.
#3648 of 3676 Do Wheel hubs have to be same brand
Aug 23, 2011 (9:21 am)
I just installed a driveworks wheel hub from autozone last night. It was the only one in stock. Now the abs triggers on the other wheel. The driveworks hub had poor reviews(discovered after the fact). I want to replace the other hub to correct the abs issue. Does it have to be a driveworks hub to prevent fix my abs issue or will another brand work fine?

It was the fuel pump in my situation. I had 50 lbs with key on and 52 lbs at idle before replace ment. After new pump I had 55 lbs and 60 lbs respectivley. I also had more power when driving.
GM has problem with fuel pumps. I was told from dealer.

I just bought a '96 Chevy Blazer. The ABS light comes on steady. Attempting to troubleshoot, I found the lead power wires going to the ABS. One (black) is a ground. Two red wires are also present. One is from the battery and runs hot all the time. The other I'm not sure about, but isn't running hot ever aparently. Should this run hot from the ignition switch? Is it possible this is my problem? Also, I can't seem to find a schematic or any sort of diagram for this model. Does anyone know where to find one online?

You should read the codes stored in the ABS system to give you more focus on your diagnosis.

If you haven't found out by now:
Near the firewall on the passenger side should be a small tube rising up near the throttle body. It is no more than 1 inch in diameter and has a small cap.

Check and replace Disributor cap. Especially if this slow start issue occures on rainy or humid days more then any other.

Check and replace the destributor cap. They carrode inside, and have a tendency to collect moisture.
