2009 VUE 3.6L
Default 2009 vue xr 3.6l , ABS QUESTION

There is a bunch of grease on the sensor ring within the hub and on the sensor. Is this normal or has the inside seals leaked grease into this area and causing sensor malfunction? Will I need to replace the whole hub to remedy my abs/tracking stability panel lights that are intermittently come on , but mostly stays on?

Personally, grease and oil free of iron won't affect abs sensor operation. The teeth with evenly spaced gaps allows the pickup unit to generate signals based on the teeth and gaps. Imagine sine wave signals varying in frequency as wheel speeds vary. Each wheel speed signal is compared to the others while driving. A cracked/damage reluctor or damage sensor along with damaged wiring between every speed sensor and abs unit are some of the real world problems when the abs light turns on. The best way to diagnose abs issues is with auto store or personal readers capable of decoding stored abs error codes as soon as the abs light turned on, no different from the check engine light turning on and storing an error code. Autozone has upgraded their readers to decode abs errors for initial diagnostics. If you can find a reader to decode your abs errors, this can help you.

Reports from the past have shown low speed parking lot movement triggered the abs indicator turning on. Some found the wheel bearing worn. A theory of low speed worn bearings creating incorrect abs signals. This may be similar to mines using canaries before gas detectors were developed; when they croaked, this indicated to miners of dangerous gases.
