I have the ABS and Traction Control light on it all started

Customer Question

I have the ABS and Traction Control light on it all started with the emergency brake light flashing on and off. The first time I had the right rear hub replace and the emergency brake switch replaced.
No this second time sam scenario code c0293 SYM 06 08 and code C0045. They replaced the eb switch again and tell me I need a left rear hub. I read that coo45 is an speed wheel sensor, why would they need to replace the whole hub?

why would they say that code is for the hub bearing where is the speed wheel sensor located can anyone replace it
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 2 months ago.

yea its located in the hub....most shops just change the bearing but yea a hold down bolt and the harness its pretty basic

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
if the señsor is just changed the lights should hub bearing be replaced. They want 500.00 to do that .
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 2 months ago.

if they diagnosed it correctly yes...is there any play or noise in the hub bearing

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
not sure it has 105K miles so maybe just know code C0045
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 2 months ago.
