ABS sensors

Abs sensor light would flash on and off quite often on my last trip. Mechanic told me about it. Said his code reader wouldn't show the code. Said I could take it to gm dealer and have code read. It would even flash on and off when sitting stationary. Thinking about cleaning sensors before trying anything else. Any other suggestions?

Common problems are a sensor or wiring to a wheel sensor.

You mentioned a GM dealer - is this a Workhorse chassis? That's the only one I know of with a GM ABS system.

Often heavy application of brakes, or riding the brake pedal, can cause enough heat that the sensor melts. Check behind each wheel to see the condition of the sensors. I'd do as the mechanic suggests, go to a GM dealer to have the ECU read. A good code reader can tell you exactly which sensor is faulting, much better than having to guess which wheel is sending the bad signal.

When you suggest cleaning the sensor, what were you suggesting? It could be corrosion in an electrical connection, or dirt or brake dust on the tone wheel or sensor surface. A quick pass with a pressure washer can clean it, or if corrosion is the problem it might require disassembly of the brake and sanding off the corrosion.

Your idea to clean the wheel sensors is a good place to start.
