I have a 2002 buick century custom 4 dr. thats had repeated

Customer Question

hi i have a 2002 buick century custom 4 dr. thats had repeated abs sensor problems so when the abs/service engine /trac off lights come on, the brakes dont puslate; when lights are off, the abs motor groans at low speed . 2 mechanics have tried to fix this and it continues to happen. do you have any suggestions. they have said the sensor was faulty and keep replacing it. thank you for your help so much
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: abs light yellow, service engine light, and trac off light come on all at the same time
JA: Are you fixing your Century yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: no, the first garage sent it out to another mechanice and replaced the abs senser. the 2nd garage im usiing the car has been in and out of there monthly and they keep rplacing the abs senser but within 2 weeks, the brakes pulsated without the light on and the next day the lights came on and no pulsating happens. It changes every time I stop and restart the car.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no im good thank you
