100% abs sensor, unplug and clean with wd40, if that's no good new sensors required

Did you buy new hubs with bearings and ABS sensor already installed? They start from below £50 for the whole thing so it's just as cheap as buying the bits separately.https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FOR-CHEVROLET-CAPTIVA-VAUXHALL-ANTARA-07-FRONT-WHEEL-BEARING-KIT-HUB-ABS-SENSOR-/172584706908?epid=850212421&hash=item282ed9a35c:g: XYQAAOSwWxNYz6-e

Yep agree with Andrewberry abs sensor fault or connections. check all connections wires to plugs. pins in plugs for any debris or corrosion.
Was old cables surported ie cable ties that have been removed and not replaced after wheel bearings changed

Everything as it was bearings came with new sensors but one could be faulty so will put original ones back in because I know they work

I decided to invest in a really good diagnostics device, I received it today and once familiar with it plugged it into the cars diagnostic socket and did a scan on the ABS sensors and drivetrain.
I found out that the rear right ABS sensor is faulty and I also have a stability
malfunction which I presume comes from the ABS issue

Excellent well done you
can you nick one of your old abs sensors from front bearings not sure if they are the same worth a try

Thanks big John
Unfortunately the rear ABS cable is longer so won't fit so beings as my Antara as covered 53500 miles I'll replce both rear bearings which means I only need to do them once as ABS sensors come in new bearings
