The speed odometer sensor is located on the topside of the Transmission...Close by the inner side of one of the C.V. Axles......You may need a flashlight to really see it...Now if you replace it, and it still does'nt work, then your speed odometer cable is broken...and thats a lil more difficult to replace...Goodluck...

Each wheel has a sensor on it which tells the abs system that your wheel is rolling and lets the cpu know if there is any difference in speed between them. Most likely you damaged one or more of them when you did the work. Check the wiring going to the sensors, if it's not that, then you either need to bring it to a dealer or live without abs and traction control. (abs and traction control work from the same sensors).

Is the temperature going up to atleast 195 to 20 degrees? If it is then theres something wrong with the control that switches it to hot and cold.Its either the control its self or what they call the blend door under the dash on the passenger side..Now if its not atleast reaching temperatures of 185 to 200 the thermostat could be the problem.If your looking under the hood follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to the motor..where it goes into the motor theres this aluminum housing thats held on with two bolts..Behind that is the thermostat..If you temperature is going kinda up and down it could be very well a bad intake gasket or even a head gasket hope this helps you and have a great day

has the trans been tested yet for trouble codes? if not have the dealer test the trans control module.

this is a serious problem with the wiring harness or the body control module, there will be no easy fix for this, the only ones that might have an idea what is going wrong here is the dealer, they have a data base of weird problems like this, they are called TSB's, short for technical service bulletin's, I suggest you have them diagnose this ASAP because the next step is most likely a no start condition or a possible vehicle fire form wiring.

More then likely the switch itself is bad. Chances are the contacts inside the switch are not connecting and allowing the motor to operate in those positions. If possible, try a known good switch in it's place.

Hello, I do not believe I would be so quick to let them put that hose on, until I had a second opinion. That sounds like its a very exspensive hose and labor you really want to get a second opinion. I've been in this line of work over 10 years and worked at GM 3years. I never had a hose that costed much more than a $100, and that was a powersteering hose. Please rate this answer, Thank You.

If it won't unlock with either switch,(drivers door, or passenger door switch) take the door panel off and check the actuator valve that operates the lock.
