In my case it was the wheel bearing hub which have the traction control sensor included.on the gmt800's service stability is often related the yaw rate/steering angle sensor in the steering column
possible but usually a bad hub or abs sensor will throw a abs codeIn my case it was the wheel bearing hub which have the traction control sensor included.
Before swapping you should read out the error codes....
If there is a code of the steering column sensor, then it's clear. If there is no code, then it's the wheel bearing hub very likely, because for the electronic of the car, it looks like that the wheel stops, not the sensor is not available.

Thank you for taking the time to document your experience and advice. I’ll keep relying on this forum for fixes and help.Well, as you previously noted….about 160k is where things start going.…not everything, but some components just don’t have a service life past a certain point. Remember, you’re buying a 20+ year old vehicle, even if if it was maintained to the Nth degree, things go bad and 160k is about when it happens. I will tell you that in ‘03 there was was a change, refresh if you will, not so much with body but an electronics refresh of sorts. I had an ‘01 Tahoe that had not 1 problem in the 16 years I owned it from new. That truck never went back to the dealer nor any mechanic for anything. Normal wear items and maintenance aside that was a solid unit and I kick myself for selling it. My brother bought an ‘03 and the fuel pump and some other components failed the minute he made a left off the dealers lot. He traded that in an ‘05 and the fuel pump on that one went within 15k. It is what it is, fix your issues and move on or sell it and purchase another one. Or don’t. There is nobody on this forum that can tell you if you bought a needy unit but the reality of the situation is you are purchasing 20+ yr old vehicles and shit is going to start happening, lucky for you all of the problems you may or may not encounter have been documented and fixes are posted right behind the documented issues…99.99% of the time.
Personally I would keep your current ‘04 and fix whatever pops up, do all of your maintenance items and say a little prayer.
My opinion. Good luck.
I will need to investigate these further. I would it is original with regular fluid and filter changes.This.^^^^
Not trying to jinx you--But--has the transmission been replaced or repaired by the former owner? The transmission usually starts to give warning signs right around 160k. They've been known to go past that though. Is there a service history on the transmission itself? Fluid and filter changes at the recommended intervals?
Thank you , love this advice, I’m going to keep plugging awaysavagetek,
1) Sounds like it's fixed. Good.
2) Sounds like it's fixed, and you won't have the same problem again. Better.
3) Sounds like it's fixed. Good.
4) Body control module bullschidt would twist my nuts too, I get it. Hope this works.
5) Sounds like a new MAF will fix it. If not, it's likely a wiring issue; hopefully wiring was ruled out prior.
Murphy lives on my shoulder. I always make sure old @$$ wiring is not the problem before replacing stuff.
6) I've the same problem. Gonna check to be sure it's not a symptom of a bigger problem, but so long as the rear view mirror part of the rear view mirror works, it's not worth losing sleep or wasting analgesics on it.
7) Unless you've been in accidents where the Stability Control System has saved you at least $1000, you likely drive with enough wisdom and considerate observation, that this is not urgent.
So long as the problems aren't potentially symptoms of larger problems, you are still leagues ahead of anyone who spent a year's gross salary on a new vehicle.
This forum might even help you predict what could go wrong next, so you'll be less surprised.
(Wild guess: coolant quick connects?)
Start thinking like a cabdriver who wants to keep it for at least 300,000 miles.
Appreciate that the seller sold it for the reasons above, plan ahead, and you'll come out so far ahead, you may lose sight of yourself.
I’ve begun researching what it would take to obtain a Tech 2. Now it seems that I have a lot of homework to do regarding the tech2 because it appears there’s a lot of alternatives. I’ve researched online and prices on the tech2 range from $300 - $1500. Do you happen to have a link or a suggestion of where to purchase one with the exact set up? I need for my Yukon?if you plan on keeping it and working on it yourself a tech2 is your best investment
