Hi there,

Your car is a VZ Commodore ute.

If you have replaced a rear sensor, there could be wiring harness damage.

Did you use a new genuine sensor?

Can you have a scan done on the car for codes set in the ABS module please?

we used ne2w genuine parts. the mechanic plugged in his computer and the same answer comes up
Expert:  Gary replied 5 months ago.

What is the code?

Have they checked wheel speed data?

How much damage if any to the exhaust, rear bumper etc?

Expert:  Gary replied 5 months ago.

Hello again,

Do you need any further help?

Perhaps you have falsely logging codes that a rework shim for the rear sensors is available from Holden.

I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.

Kind regards
