Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my equinox is awd and i and i am having problems diagnosing what is wrong with the abs. the abs turn on every time i slow down just before i stop completely. i have checked the axles and put it on the scanner and all abs reading are the same, even when i brake the reading stay equal. no abs wire is damaged and right front hub bearing has been replaced to try to fix he problem but nothing will fix it. no abs light is on or have any codes.  what could this be ?

Broken or frayed wire? Lose connection? Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

might be the sensor in the left hub bearing or bearing itself.when bearings get worn the sensor cant read anymore.

Mine is doing same thing. Replaced both front wheel bearings/sensors and harnesses still does it. Looking at the rear wheel sensors now???
