ive got a 95 2500 and my front right sensor was bad. Does your truck have a lift? if so it may be putting a strain on the cable. (mine was doing this and it eventually broke the sensor) You need to find out which of the sensors has gone out. Im not sure if there is a way to get the code with out a code reader on a 96. Walt probably knows.

get a code reader, it will lead you in the right direction, probably a bad sensor on the front wheels.

this is somewhat common in these trucks.

Hey Guys,

Wher are the sensors on the front wheels? Are they on the disk brake splash guard or in the hub?

Thanks Mike.

You might want to check you wheel bearings. If there is enough slop in the wheel bearing it will pulse the pads/calipers and send a fault. The sensor in right by the calipers and you will see two wires leading up towards your frame.

No codes on a 96 without a reader. Take it to autozone and ask them to check it.

The abs light is on on my 96 burb. It goes off sometimes but is on most of the time. When its cold out, or cool like first thing in the morning, the brakes are very touchy. One of the rear ones likes to lockup easy. I believe that to be a wheel cylinder. I think that is what is causing the abs light on mine. You could have a leaky wheel cylinder or caliper or something...

Until 1995 with OBD-1 you can read your ABS codes with a paper clip also !


As Service manual says, you connect pins H and A to get ABS dtc's out.
"Normal" dtc's are read by connecting pins A and B.

To clear ABS DTC's like, H pin grounded with A (2sec on / 1sec off / 2sec on).
