Question: 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT ABS Warning Light

I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT that had 60 miles on it when I bought it in 2002-it has 90K now. About 6 mnths ago, my ABS light came on, Trac light is saying "Trac Off", and the red Brake warning light on the dash went on! Firestone ran a diagnostic test and the code said Front Right Sensor was bad. In the last week, I have replaced both front hubs (Timken), both outer tie-rod ends, both rotors and the brake pads. I also made sure that the brake fluid was full (adding the fluid turned off the "Brake" warning light that was on the dash) but the ABS is still on!

I contacted GM customer service about this and their answer was, "SORRY, THERE IS NO RECALL ON THIS RPOBLEM FOR ANY OF THESE CARS, BUT, WE WILL HELP YOU SET UP A TIME FOR YOU TO TAKE IT INTO A DEALER AND HAVE DIAGNOSTICS RUN WHICH WILL COST YOU $105.00!) They would not even pay to have the diagnostic test run. Any suggestions?
