are you sure that's it's the brake? wheels have bearings too.

Yes I'm pretty much more than sore it is not the wheel bearing I am a car guy and you know the signs of when the wheel bearings are going bad and they are not that old at all the code that comes up says ABS no communication I'm wondering why this is not communicating
