Service ESC and Service traction sign come? on after

Customer Question
Service ESC and Service...

Service ESC and Service traction sign come? on after Iinstalled 2012 Malibu LT new Hub bearing. I rotate steering wheel to access hob bolt when wheel speed sensor was disconnected. How to fix this

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the sensor have a wire-wrapped magnet? If so, have you checked it with an ohmmeter?

No I did not checked with Ohm meter. New hub was with complite assembly with harness

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes put hub myself. I did not try anything yet. Google it and itsay about calibration of steering wheel sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

2012 Malibu LT 200,000 km.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned you will receive a system automated call request, that is not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Also I am not paid hourly by just answers, I am only paid when you rate me, so if you could please respect my time and knowledge by rating me when we are finished that would be wonderful. If you could please indicate your level of experience and what you are looking to get out of your session today. Ok lets get started!

It is small I don't have it now. It just read OBD code and it has OK, Up down and erase button
Chevy Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

that scanner is too basic to look up what we need, try taking it over to the parts store they will do a free scan =, some of those stores have really nice scanners

Ok. I will try. My budget is say 200 what kind/type of scanner i can purchase.
How much is labor and part cost to replace steering wheel position sensor cost. I afraid if I took to shop they would say to replace the sensor.
Chevy Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

for 200 you can stay around 100 and get 200 dollars worth, this innova below is pretty good and the new ones at harbor freight are little bit better, below the innova I have a even better one that is not much more but it does what 2000$ scanners can do, im looking upi the sensor question now
