Wheel speed sensors. Same answer as last time you asked, if it's not what you are looking for Arik, just say so Wheel speed sensors.They are ALL tied together, a problem with one means problems with the other(s), Fortunately, it's not a safety issue, except in the rare case when ABS can make the difference between losing control or not in a panic stop, or a skid on ice. Unexpected low-traction conditions such as ice, snow, gravel, wet pavement and uneven road surfaces can become serious driving concerns. StabiliTrak® is a proven vehicle stability enhancement system designed to help keep you on the road in such situations. Using sensors, StabiliTrak detects the difference between the steering wheel angle and the direction you're turning, then applies quick, precise force to the appropriate brakes to help you control the vehicle's direction and help keep it on course. Traction Control helps reduce wheelspin on loose or slippery surfaces by applying brake pressure selectively to individual wheels. Brake Assist helps the driver reach the antilock braking system (ABS) threshold sooner to reduce stopping distances.
