Suburban: 2500 4x4..ABS light on intermittently..front hubs…

Her we go.. Mark Geslock...
Her we go.. Mark Geslock 2004 2500 4x4 6.0 Surburban. ABS light on intermittently. Both of the front hubs with sensor has been replaced. Pads are not worn. From front wheels there seems to be a "slipping" or "grabbing" feel/noise. Do I need to have a code reader to get ABS codes?

Is there any checks that I can do? I have digitial Volt-ohm meter.

Thanks Mark.

The sound does. Some times the inside chime will go off and the light may not come on. The other times light will stay on.

 

PS 100% right on the float in the tank. It had come off. I replaced it anyway,

what we see is usually a bad abs control module doing this it for some reason doesn't read the wheel speeds correctly i would recommend you get the abs codes read before you just change the module but 98 percent of the time we do end up with a module
