hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX i can help you with your problem. have you checked the wheel bearing on the left front? sometimes when the bearing starts to go bad it makes the hub move in certian ways that the sensor doesnt pick up the signal. also was there any debris near the sensor when you replaced it? sometimes when you remove the sensor some dirt will fall into the hole and block the sensor. i will try and find the tsb your refering to and post it here for you. hope this helps , please let me know. thanks james

hi joe, ok i found some information. i had a few references to code c0035 , it seems that chevy has had problems with the left front wheel brg and speed sensor assembly. the recommened fix is to replace the entire assembly. if you do this i would suggest getting a factory part. i hope this helps , please let me know if you have any questions on replacing the assembly. james
