    ABS light and traction control light

    Hello, I have a Cadillac DTS with 100K miles.

    Its been raining for 10 straight days here. Today my ABS light came on at low speed when braking. The traction/stability light is also on with it. I assume they are both on due to an ABS sensor.

    I restarted the car later and it went away for 50 miles, but came back on when braking at low speeds later. So it is intermittent. I see a TB for Cadillac's on Wheel sensor corrosion and this makes sense. It was raining all day while driving it.

    How do I tell which sensor is bad? I have engine scanners but they don't read ABS codes. I saw something about disconnecting the connector to the sensor and rotating the tires. Then measuring AC millivolts. Is there another way to see which one is giving me trouble?

    Thank you

    My mechanics scanner told him exactly which wheel it was on. Take it to someone that has a better scanner than you're using.
