    I Have A 2001 Chevy Silverado 4x4 And The ABS And Brake Light On The Dash Come On After About A Minute Of Driving. I Have No Grinding Or Any Other Noises While Driving. I Believe Its Just A Bad Sensor For The Hub Assembly. Is It Possible To Replace Just The Sensor Or Easier To Replace The Whole Hub Assembly? Is There Any Way To See If Its A Recalled Part? Any Help Is Appreciated. Thanks In Advance.

    Welcome to the club, it's great to have you aboard. A 2001 is probably due for Hub assembly anyway. Mine is a 2002 and I had to replace the right front. Good luck man. :glasses:

    Welcome to the Club!!!

    I moved your thread to the correct section as this will help in getting more response/opinions related to your topic.

    Not sure if you'll find this info helpful, but I have a 2008 which does the same thing occasionally (when it happens, it's usually when I hit highway speeds). It started happening after I increased my tire size and used a programmer to set my computer accordingly. Last I heard, this happens regularly with the NNBS but not sure about your year truck.

    [MENTION=37237]mfleetwood[/MENTION], It happened to me, too, after upsizing my tire size on my NBS truck. I had to play around with my handheld programmer to find a tire size that it would accept without turning on both idiot lights. I talked to Lew about it and he said GM vehicles are finicky about tire sizes and simply to keep tweaking it until I found one that worked.

    If it still happens to you, on occasion, you might need to continue to play with it to find a size that's near the mark ... without causing the issue.
